Mrs. Fieger was the mother of two sons. Addy Fieger saluted Northwood for “the ingenious concept and implementation of the Northwood/IASTA Musical Theatre Studio which provides qualified students and professional composers, lyricists and librettists with the unique opportunity to develop a work-in-progress into a finished production.” (Deceased 1989)
