West Long Branch - Sigrún (Dirra) Feerst, 90, of West Long Branch, NJ passed away peacefully on December 12, 2017 at Brandywine Sycamore in Shrewsbury. She was born in Reykjavík, Iceland where she met her beloved husband Albert Feerst in 1947. They were soon married and moved to Bronx, NY and then settled in West Long Branch, NJ in 1957.

After retirement, she volunteered for Family Children Services and then later the Clothing Closet at the Reformation Lutheran Church. She will always be remembered for her caring heart and how hard she worked for others.

She was predeceased by her husband, Albert; her parents Guðmundur R. Joelsson and Ólöf Jóhannsdóttir; her sisters Ellen Walstrom, California, Hanna Zorn, Ohio, and Gusta Guðmundsdóttir, Iceland; and her brother Eyjólfur Guðmundsson, Iceland.
