LouiseFeen,“TheVoiceofSevern” Mary Louise Feen, 71, a lifelong resident of the Annapolis area, and Severn’s receptionist from 1993 - 2006 died at home Nov. 29 of natural causes. Louise was born July 10, 1938, in Annapolis, and was raised in West Annapolis, the youngest of five. She graduated from Annapolis H.S. in 1956, and married Edward F. Feen Jr. at St Mary’s in Annapolis. Other than her time at Severn, Louise worked at Aviation in Glen Burnie, Annapolis Bank & Trust, and Wilmer’s Communications in Edgewater. Louise was a caring, thoughtful and devoted mother, wife, and friend and gave much of herself to others. She took great pride in being known as “Mom” to many people other than just her children. Her patience, supportiveness and friendship touched many lives. Louise enjoyed reading, traveling and especially sewing and quilting; many grateful

family members and friends were the recipients of her creative sewing and quilting talents. She was a loyal and avid Penn State fan and was very active in the Annapolis Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association.

1941 Dick Flower sends this news: “Learning and playing lacrosse for 1 year, after the war I came home got a job, married, raising young ones and joined the “Cleveland Lacrosse Club”. We were promoting lacrosse in Ohio by playing all the college teams. You coached me well! Quit at 36.”

From Chris: “Hi All: Surprise! Surprise! I’m home. After ten weeks in the hospital and a rehab facil-

ity I am finally home. No, I never had that knee operation that I was scheduled for last week. It all started on July 15th when I tripped over a treadmill at the hospital in the cardiac maintenance facility, fell on my wallet, and broke my hip. If you are going to break anything, a hospital is the best place I know. Within five seconds I must have been surrounded by 15 people, including my cardiologist and two other doctors. Within an hour I was in the operating room having the hip fixed with a plate and a pin. Then the fun began. My balance is non-existent. And the knee, which I was supposed to have fixed became totally unstable, coupled with two bouts of faux gout, swollen ligaments, non functional rotator cuff (which prevented me from leaning on the walker) - I was such a mess I thought I would never walk again. I’m not there yet, but at least I can now see the end of the tunnel. My goal is to make a class cruise in January. Wish me luck!”
