Biographical / Historical

Betty E. Feder, née Betty Goldberg, was born around 1920 in Fargo, North Dakota. She attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where she graduated in 1941 from the School of Speech and Theater. Betty married Paul Feder in 1941 and moved back to Fargo to raise their 4 children. Betty was an active volunteer in the community for many years, serving on boards and committees for the Union of Reform Judaism, the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, the Mayor's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, the Arthritis Foundation, and the Minnesota State University-Moorhead Foundation, among many other organizations. After a long life as a community leader and volunteer, Betty Feder passed away in 2012 at the age of 92; she is survived by her 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. This collection was donated to the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest by Betty's daughter Barbara Hanovich.
