Eugene M. Feingold, age 94, passed away in Chicago, Illinois, on April 21, 2024. For more than 71 years, he was the devoted and loving husband of Rosalind (nee Frumkin) Feingold, who survives him, as does Susan Feingold Carlson, his daughter.

Also surviving him are his grandchildren: Robert Schwartz (and his wife Shana), David Carlson, and Elizabeth Carlson; his great granddaughter, Lily Schwartz; his sons-in-law Mark Schwartz and Douglas Carlson; his sister Ruth Kern (and her husband Arthur); his sisters-in-law Faith Feingold and Lorinda Feingold; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Leslie Feingold Schwartz, his parents David and Mollie Feingold, and his brothers Edgar and Murray Feingold.

Gene was born and raised in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. He was a graduate of MMI Preparatory School, the University of Pittsburgh, and Harvard Law School.

Beginning in 1954, Gene practiced law in Hammond, and later in Munster, Indiana. From 1962 through 2016, he served as the attorney for the Town of Munster. This Spring would have marked his 70th anniversary as a member of the Indiana bar.

Gene had a sense of responsibility regarding, and derived much satisfaction from, volunteering. He started as a “Jaycee” for the Hammond chapter of the Junior Chamber of Commerce and served as the Vice President of Temple Beth-El; President of Ravisloe Country Club; and President of the South District Golf Association of Country Club Presidents.

In 1982, Gene joined the Board of Directors of Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey, Illinois. In 2001, he assumed the position of Chair of the Ingalls Health System, which he held until he stepped down at the end of 2016. Gene led the volunteer effort in the decision-making process that ultimately resulted in Ingalls’ affiliation with the University of Chicago Medicine in October 2016. In January 2019, Ingalls’ Flossmoor Family Care Center was named in his honor.

Following the death of his daughter, Leslie, in 2011, Gene and his family established a foundation in her memory to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research. Gene served as an officer of the foundation until his death.

On behalf of the Susan Fine family we want to express our deepest sympathies for your loss. Susan was a 41 year dedicated cheerleader for Ingalls. Mr, Feingold was always a gracious and generous leader of the Ingalls Board. Susan loved to work with Mr. Feingold and looked forward to every encounter, whether at the Hospital, Idlewild or Temple. May his memory be for a blessing.💕
