Obituary for Duane Fadness

Duane Harold Fadness, 84, born on July 4, 1933 and fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church on July 5, 2017. Beloved husband of Marjorie Ellen (Adams) Fadness for 62 loving and adventuresome years. Cherished father of Anne (Randy) Highness, David (Kathryn) Fadness, Kate (Patrick) Kane, Paula (Michael) Jung and Jane (Peter) Ries. Devoted and loving Grandfather of Stephanie (Fadness) Hall, Sara (Kane) Carrizal, Alison Jung, Daniel Kane, Sam Fadness, Andrew Jung, Benjamin Kane, Emily Highness, John (Jack) Ries, Caroline Jung and Emma Ries. Smitten Great-Grandfather to Madison Carrizal. Treasured husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend.

Duane retired from JCPenney in 1993 after a 45-year career with the company. He was just 15 years old when he began sweeping floors at the JCP store in Lisbon, ND, the town where he was born. Duane continued to work for JCP and entered the management training program while in college at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. He proceeded to work his way up in the company but realized that he loved managing stores more than anything. Duane retired as the Store Manager of the South County location and, throughout his career, mentored hundreds of people who learned from his humble, smart and supportive management style. Some of those people became his closest and life-long friends continually touched by Duane’s humor and generous and gracious heart.

Duane has spent the last 20+ years happily enjoying retirement with Marge and his family. He was able to enjoy their cabin in Amery, Wisconsin and spent his days fishing, working around the house, fishing, spending time with family and friends and…fishing! Although his health had begun to fail over the last several years, he never lost his loving and caring spirit, gracious and open heart, and sharp and hilarious wit.

Services will be held at St. Clements of Rome Church on Saturday, July 15th. Visitation will begin at 9:30 am and Mass will be immediately following at 10:30 am. Memorial donations may be made in Duane’s name or memory to the White House Retreat Center, 7400 Christopher Drive, St. Louis, MO 63129 ( or the Society of St. Vincent DePaul, St. Clement Council, 1510 Bopp Road, St. Louis, MO 63131.
