Obituary for Jim "JT" Feeney

Jim (JT) Feeney, age 60 of West Liberty & Iowa City, died of a probable cardiac event on September 8, 2018.

Jim was born on July 1, 1958 at Mercy Hospital in Iowa City to parents, Barb (Boyle) & Dick Feeney. Jim grew up on Ronalds Street where he loved playing with his siblings and neighbors as well as attending the summer playgrounds at North Market and Happy Hollow Parks. He attended Horace Mann Elementary, Central & Southeast Jr. high schools and graduated from City High School in 1977.

He worked for Things, Things & Things and more recently at The University of Iowa for nearly 30 years; and most recently working in Housing & Dining at Hillcrest Dormitory as Store Keeper 2. His co-workers will remember his friendly greetings and his commitment to provide service to others.

Jim met the love of his life, Denise Anderson, in 1995 and they were married on April 21, 2002. The couple have also lived at one time in Coralville & Keota with many cats in their lives.

Jim will be remembered for his friendly smile and charismatic personality. His family and friends will remember his generosity to others. Years ago, Jim adopted the DO IT NOW motto and used it in his daily life as a hard-working person at work and at home.

Survivors include his wife, Denise Anderson of West Liberty; mother, Barb Feeney of Iowa City; brothers, Rick Feeney (Amy) of Cedar Rapids & John (Angela Murphy) Feeney of Coralville; sister, Sue Feeney (Doug Russell) of Iowa City;
nieces, Cybil (Sleichter) Miller (Matt) of Coralville & Mindy Sleichter of Iowa City;
nephews, Kyle Sleichter & Kevin Feeney, both of Cedar Rapids; brothers-in-law, Alan Anderson & Dennis Anderson of Marshalltown and sister-in-law, Linda (Christopher) Kondrath of Oak Park, Il.

Departed family includes Jim’s Father, Dick Feeney, niece, Liz Sleichter & in-laws, Lois & Gerald Anderson.

Instead of flowers and plants, donations may be made to the Jim Feeney Memorial Fund.

Friends & family are invited to a Remembrance Gathering on Saturday, September 15, 2018, from 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. at Lensing Funeral & Cremation Service, 605 Kirkwood Ave in Iowa City. A private burial service will be held at St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

The clock of time is wound but once.
And no man has the power To tell just when the
hands will stop, at late or early hour.
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one’s health is more,
To lose one’s soul
is such a loss
No man can restore.
The present only is our own,
Live, love, toil with a will,
Place no faith in “tomorrow”
For the clock may then
be still.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest.
-W. H. Auden
