Emogene Feauto, daughter of William and Emma (Kruger) Immens, was born on September 1, 1926 in Excelsior Township, Lake Park, IA. She was the youngest of fourteen children in the family. She graduated from high school in Harris, IA with the Class of 1945. Emogene was always proud that six of her seven brothers all served in the war at the same time. She was united in marriage to Armond Feauto on February 17, 1947 in Worthington, MN. The family moved to Oakland, IA in 1969 when Armond started working at American Beef Packers. The family also spent some time in Council Bluffs, but eventually, Emogene and Armond ended up in Omaha for medical reasons. Emogene enjoyed collecting bells, as well as anything with birds on it; she also enjoyed reading and crossword puzzles. She had a great sense of humor, and although she never had a driver's license, she rarely missed church. She and Armond were life-long members of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Avoca and often volunteered to help with whatever they could. Emogene's children and grandchildren meant the world to her; she thought of them often, and always sent birthday or holiday cards early.
Armond Francis Feauto was born on March 12, 1922 in Westfield, Iowa to U. R. "Ray" and Marie (Knittle) Feauto. He was the oldest of ten children in the family. He attended Ridge Road Rural Elementary School and graduated from Liberty Township High School in Merrill, Iowa on May 22, 1940. He joined the United States Army on June 16, 1944 and served in the China-Burma-India Theater during WWII. He was honorably discharged on May 14, 1946. He met Emogene Immens at a dance in Sioux Valley, Iowa and on February 17, 1947 the two were united in marriage at a priest's house in Worthington, Minnesota. Armond farmed until 1958, when he and Emogene sold their farm and moved to Sioux City, Iowa. The family spent some time in Lake Park and Glenwood before eventually moving to Oakland, IA where Armond began working for American Beef Packers. He retired in 1984, when American Beef Packers closed, and he and Emogene managed the hotel in Avoca for the next few years. Armond enjoyed golfing, woodworking, and he took pride in working on his own vehicles and fixing anything he could. He enjoyed watching Notre Dame football and he loved spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was an active volunteer at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Avoca, and he was also involved with the Knights of Columbus. He was a member of the Oakland American Legion and the local VFW and volunteered to help with many funerals and parades.
