John Neyer Family Fund

Life-long Isabella County residents, John and Kathleen Judge Neyer, have been honored by their six children and their spouses through the establishment of the John Neyer Family Fund in their memory.

John, who passed away in 1990, was active in the oil and gas industry and was also involved with the community. He was a member of the Rotary Club and the Knights of Columbus.Kathleen, who passed away in 1983, worked as a full-time homemaker. The couple was also very involved in their faith, as they were active members of the Sacred Heart Parish Catholic Church. They supported and volunteered for many church organizations and at Sacred Heart Academy.

Strong family ties were very important to John and Kathleen, as well as education and instilling responsibility for one's self and community. With the help of their numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren, it is hoped that the fund will continue to grow and help many people in the local community reach their full potential.
