Fr. George Albers, C.PP.S., 97, died at 5:30 a.m., in the infirmary at St. Charles Center.

He was the son of Lawrence and Gertrude (Ungehauer) Albers.

Surviving are two nephews: Clem Pater III and Gerry Pater, both Hamilton; a niece, Carolyn Johnson, Lodi, CA; five great-nephews: Matthew C. Pater, Larry Johnson, Bob Johnson, Mark Boufford, and Doug Boufford; three great-nieces: Julie M. Sheppard, Lisa K. Sabourin and Megan S. Halverson; and numerous and great-great nieces and nephews.

Deceased are a brother, Lawrence (Janet); and two sisters: Rosemary (Clem) Pater and Loretta Albers.

The priesthood was a second career for him; earlier in life he was a talented and well-respected architect. In his work with Ed Schulte and Associates of Cincinnati, he designed churches and cathedrals all over the country, including work on St. Peter in Chains Cathedral, Cincinnati.

After caring for his mother until her death, he entered religious formation in 1954 and was ordained on June 9, 1962 in Carthagena. He celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination in June 2012.

Fr. Albers was active in parish and school ministry during his years as a priest. He was also a hospital chaplain for many years.

After his ordination he ministered at St. Joseph, Hamilton; Holy Angels, Dayton; Holy Rosary, St. Marys; Sacred Heart, Sedalia, MO; St. Augustine, Rensselaer, IN; Precious Blood, Fort Wayne, IN; and St. Joseph, Dayton. He was also an instructor at Julienne High School, Dayton and Saint Joseph's College, Rensselaer.

In 1972, he was named a chaplain at St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne, IN. He also served at Timken Mercy Hospital, Canton. He returned to parish ministry in 1978 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish (now Our Lady, Queen of Peace) in Cleveland. He remained in residence there after his retirement in 1982, during which Fr. Albers, a skilled woodworker, helped his brother, Lawrence, in a clock repair shop. Fr. Albers moved to St. Charles Center in 2000.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. Charles Center, with Fr. Larry Hemmelgarn, C.PP.S., presiding, and Fr. John Hoying, homilist.
