Rev. George J. Feider, O. Praem.
b. Saturday, Dec. 18, 1909 – d. Tuesday, Oct. 5, 1982

Our brother George Feider was born in Dacada, Wisconsin in 1909, was vested as a novice in 1932, professed in 1934 and ordained in 1939.  

In 1937, he joined the faculty at Southeast Catholic, where he taught German.  

When Daylesford became independent from DePere in 1963, George joined the East, as he had spent all of his active years there.  He spent his entire priestly life on the faculty of Southeast Catholic / Bishop Neumann High School.  

Bowling was George’s main love.  He began moderating the bowling team in 1943, and in 1951 succeeded in bringing the first Catholic League and City Championship in bowling to Southeast.  When Bishop Neumann opened, he continued moderating the teams there.  He was much loved by the students, and he loved them too.  

George was known for his quick wit and timeliness.  No matter how late he was up into the night, he was always pacing the corridor of the faculty house the next morning, waiting for a ride to the 5:30 a.m. convent runs!

For 14 successive summers, George took care of the parish activities at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in Hilltown, Pennsylvania, where he also ministered on weekends during the school year.  

Worn out by his unstoppable pace, George died October 5th, 1982, at the age of 72. 

If you have a photograph of this Norbertine, we would love to hear from you.
