Obituaries Plains Edition for 8-8-09

Douglas E. “Doug” Line, 63, of Miller died July 24, 2009, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.

He was born Aug. 31, 1945, in Kearney to C. Azale and Irma (Judy) Line.

On June 6, 1964, he married Dixie Hoos in Sumner.

He was raised in the Miller area and attended the Wild Horse School, Miller Public School and Sumner High School, where he graduated in 1963.

He and his wife made their home north of Miller. He loved working the land and tending to livestock on the family ranch that was founded in 1887.

He treasured time with Dixie, his family and many friends. His love of singing and dancing showed through his every note and step. He attended and enjoyed his grandchildren’s many activities as long as his health permitted.

He is an inspiration to all after enduring years of medical research through clinical trials that will help someone someday. He was a fighter beyond words, never complaining, always positive … the best of the best.

He was a faithful member of Sumner Grace Lutheran Church, which was of extreme importance to him. He was a past member of the Sumner Saddle Club, Redwing School Board, Sumner Co-op Board, National and Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association, American Quarter Horse Association and Aid Association for Lutherans, where he was a charter member.

He enjoyed playing and coaching Sumner baseball and softball and was a past member/leader of the Diamond Willow 4-H Club.

Survivors include his wife, Dixie; son, Darby (Annette) Line of Miller and their sons, Travis, Dillan, Jason and Creyton; daughters, Deanna (Dan) Sleicher of Kearney and their children, Cassidy and Collin, and Danelle (Matt) Hadwiger of Amherst and their children, Ty, Taryn, Tenley and Tayje; his father of Miller and special friend, Janice Pfeiffer of Amherst; sister, Judy (Robert) Erwin of Sumner and their children, Susan (Brian) Dittmar of Sumner and James Erwin of Akron, Colo.; and 20 special nieces and nephews.
