After a six-month long battle with bladder cancer Dennis Jerome Felling, 71, died peacefully at home in Wyoming, Minn. Mon., Sept. 12 at 12:35 p.m. His wife of 48 years, Barbara Ann (Sieber) Felling was by his side. Along with his spouse, Dennis is survived by his oldest daughter, Emily (Felling) Marose of Elmwood, Wis., mother to his only granddaughter Leanna Marose, and by his youngest daughter, U.S. Army war veteran, Elizabeth Felling of Carlisle, Penn.
Dennis was born to Jerome and Joan Felling of Osceola, Wisconsin. on Aug. 3, 1951. Jerome preceded Dennis in death October 9, 2018 at the age of 88, but his mother Joan is 91 and currently resides in Florence, Arizona.
Dennis or “Denny” to most, is the eldest of six children. His living siblings, in chronological order, are as follows: Rita Felling Mckee, Milltown, Wis.; Lynda Felling Nordling, Naperville, Ill.; Michael Felling, Stillwater, Minn.; Marybeth Felling Uran, Florence, Ariz..; and Gregory Felling, Medina, Minn. In addition to his siblings, Dennis also had a son-in-law, Matthew Stuart Marose, Elmwood, Wis. who died of Covid complications on Dec. 30, 2021. Lastly, Dennis has roughly 12 nieces and nephews who currently reside all over the Midwest and Western U.S.
Dennis had a brain injury at birth, so he never completed high school. However, he knew the value of hard work since he grew up on a 500-acre dairy farm in East Farmington, Wis. He helped on the family farm at different times throughout his life. In between, he worked at various companies in general labor and production positions. His last place of employment for a decade, and prior to his retirement, was with Van Hoven rendering company of South Saint Paul, Minn.
While retired, Dennis enjoyed time with the beloved family dog Fritz, a white purebred German Shepherd; gardening; riding around on his John Deere lawn tractor; volunteering at church; and traveling across the U.S.-- especially the West with its mountainsides.
