Dustin William Schewe


Dustin William Schewe, 52, of Nerstrand, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday morning, January 18, 2024, at home.

Born on May 30, 1971, in Albert Lea, MN, Dustin's life was a testament to the power of love, laughter, and dedication.

Growing up on a farm near Emmons, MN, Dustin developed a strong work ethic and a love for the outdoors that would stay with him throughout his life. He graduated from Emmons High School in 1989 and went on to earn his degree from Moorhead State University in 1993. It was there that he met the love of his life, Angie Dold. The two were united in marriage on September 13, 1997, in Elrosa, MN, and began their journey together.

Dustin's career in corrections began at the facility in Moose Lake, MN. He transferred from there to Faribault and then to Red Wing. In July of 1998, Dustin and Angie settled in Northfield, MN, where they started their family and built a life filled with joy and purpose. The family recently moved to Nerstrand, where Dustin continued to be a pillar of strength and support.

Dustin was a man of many talents and interests. His fun-loving spirit and big heart made him a joy to be around. An avid fisherman, he found solace and excitement in the great outdoors. His hands were rarely still, as he was always working on cars or fixing something around the house. Dustin spent many days on the family farm helping with different things. One of his greatest joys was going back to where he grew up. Dustin’s willingness to lend a hand was unmatched, and he was often the first to offer help to friends and neighbors in need. Above all, family was everything to Dustin. He was a loving husband, a supportive father, and a dependable son and brother. His presence brought warmth and laughter into every room, and his absence will be deeply felt by all who knew him.

Dustin's life was marked by his loving nature, sense of humor, and handy skills. These attributes were the foundation of the countless cherished memories that his family and friends will hold onto. Dustin's legacy is one of love, laughter, and the willingness to help others, and it will continue to live on through the lives of those he touched. As we say goodbye to Dustin, we celebrate the time we had with him and the impact he made on our lives. His spirit will forever be a guiding light for his family, and his memory will be treasured in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know him.

Dustin is survived by his loving wife, Angie; their children, Luke (Matti Prayfrock) of Nerstrand, Mackenzie (Joshua Hoadley) of Inver Grove Heights, and Sophia of Nerstrand; his parents, Virgil Schewe of Albert Lea and Charlene (Dean) Anderson of Osage; his in-laws, Kenneth and Diane Dold of Sauk Centre; his sister, Christine (Kevin) Wilson of New Braunfels, TX; sisters-in-law, Michele (Trevor) Moritz of Sartell and Kerri (Ben) Dirkes of Sartell; brother-in-law, Craig (Jenny) Dold of Sauk Centre; and numerous nieces and nephews.
