EVELYN CECELIA FEIT was born November 13, 1917 to John and Barbara (Gilfoy) Bergin in rural Springwater Township, Rock County, Minnesota. She attended school at St. Mary’s Academy in Dell Rapids, South Dakota for three years and graduated from Sherman High School in Sherman, South Dakota. She furthered her education at Mankato State Teacher’s College in Mankato, Minnesota. After graduation Eveyln returned home and began her teaching career in Rock County, Minnesota. Throughout the years, she taught school in both Rock and Pipestone Counties. Evelyn married Eugene Feit on June 14, 1939 at St. Leo’s Catholic Church in Pipestone, Minnesota. The couple made their home in rural Rushmore, Minnesota where they farmed for 50 years. In 1977 they began wintering in Mesa, Arizona. Upon retirement in 1987, the couple moved to Luverne, Minnesota. Eugene preceded her in death in 2000. Evelyn continued to reside in Luverne during the summer months and winter in Arizona until this past year, when she wintered in Minnesota for the first time in over 35 years.
