Irene was born on May 29, 1923 to Frederick and Alice (Mattson) Flegel in Kulm, ND. She was raised and educated in the Kulm area, continuing her education after high school to become a teacher. Irene married Clifford Feil on March 1, 1952 in Mandan. Irene was a school teacher for several years including several years teaching Kindergarten out of her home. She and Cliff were active members of their community; they owned and operated Taylor Drug on Main Street in Mandan for many years. She was a talented artist and was very active in the Mandan Arts Association. Irene and Cliff had a shared interest in art and they traveled the region together visiting art museums and galleries.
Above all Irene's family and her faith were central in her life. She always had her bible by her side. She was very proud of her family and enjoyed the time they spent together. She was a very outgoing and likeable woman who made friends easily because of her caring demeanor and gift of gab.
Irene will be deeply missed by her daughter, Dawn (Alvin) Weigel, Bismarck, ND; son, Jay (special friend, Deb Tweet), Mandan, ND; 5 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren; sisters, Wanda Gebhardt, Monango, ND and Claire (Lyle) Bjur, Kulm, ND and brother, Mayo (Janet) Flegel, Mankato, MN.
Irene was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Cliff, who passed away in 2002; sister, Genevieve (Irvin) Zinter; sister-in-law, Barbara Flegel and brother-in-law, Henry Gebhardt.
