Duane Beune was born May 9, 1927 on the family farm south of Wisner, NE to August and Anna (Goeller) Beune. He was baptized and confirmed at the Zion Lutheran Church, rural Wisner, NE.

They farmed south of Wisner, where Duane enjoyed raising cattle on the family farm until 1992, at which they moved into West Point, NE.

Duane served in various positions in the Zion-St. John Lutheran Church, rural Wisner, and served as the Bismark Township Clerk for 17 years. Upon moving to West Point, NE, the couple became members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.

Heartfelt sympathies to you, Anita, and all your beloved family at this time of loss. I remember many hours of time spent with you and Duane at various church gatherings and during Bible studies - he loved the Lord with reverence and was a blessing to many. May you find comfort and peace In healing through the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
In Christian sympathy, Lori Predoehl, Spring Hill TN,
