Age: 69
Cause of Death: cardiopulmonary arrest/kidney failure
Summary: Evelyn Pearl FEIGE was born 4 March 1912 in Thompson, Connecticut, USA. Evelyn Pearl FEIGE was the child of Willard S FEIGE and Anna R KORCH and the grandchild of: (paternal)  George Wilhelm FEIGE and Charlotte Marie SALISBURY (maternal)  Andrew (András) KORCH (KOVALČÍK) and Elizabeth (Alzbeta) (Erzsébet) TOMKO

She married  Leo George BAKER 10 January 1932 in Southbridge, Massachusetts, USA .  The couple had (at least) 3 children. Leo George BAKER  was born 24 December 1911 in Southbridge, Massachusetts, USA.  He died 28 July 1993 in Southbridge, Massachusetts, USA.  He was the son of Reuben BAKER and Marie Albina Clarinda RENAUD.

Dislikes: Touching feathers, eggs

Evelyn lived in Southbridge since her marriage to Leo in 1932. She was born in nearby Thompson, Connecticut in 1912 and was raised in Webster, Massachusetts, graduating from Bartlett High School in 1930. Leo used to ride the train from Southbridge to Webster to court her. She was a strong, determined woman with a wonderful, soft side. I spent as much of my childhood in her company as time would allow. She often would speak of our heritage and I remember very well the numerous times she would tell me that I am “German, English, Slavic, Irish and French”. The German, English and Slavic came from her side of the family. The Irish and French came from my grandfather, Leo. Evelyn would tell stories of how her family came from Prussia. That always fascinated me because there was no Prussia on the modern-day map. It was as if she was telling me that these things should matter to me; yet, I was too young to give them the full attention they deserved. Now, I laugh when I discover something “new” that she already told me long ago. She was a wise woman, but the timing was all wrong. How I wish I could talk to her now…
