With sadness, we inform you of the death of Naomi Bard Feller, 85, the founding president of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island. She passed away in San Diego, California, on Thursday, September 9, 2021 (3 Tishri).

Naomi was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Fred Bard, the son of Romanian immigrants, and Sarah Rosenblith, whose Galitzianer father, Naomi was to learn, changed his name from Nachtgeist.
She is survived by her daughter, Dr. Beth Feller Printz (David), sons Gary Feller (Toby) and Steven Feller, brother Irwin Bard (Maureen), and six grandchildren - Melissa, Ethan, Shoshana, Hailey, Anna and Allison.

A graveside service will be held on Monday, September 13, at 11:00 a.m., at New Montefiore Cemetery, West Babylon, N.Y., where Naomi will be buried alongside her late husband, Dr. Martin Feller. (A funeral procession will form at 10:45 a.m. at the cemetery's main building.)

Condolences to Naomi’s family and the JGS of Long Island from the San Diego Jewish Genealogical Society.

When Naomi moved to San Diego in 2018 she joined the San Diego JGS and attended meetings in spite of her health problems.  We are grateful for being able to get to know her.  She donated all of her genealogy books to SDJGS.

May her memory be a blessing.
