Norman John Prien was born September 28, 1925 in Davison County to Gustave and Minnie (Blume) Prien. He grew up and attended school in Douglas and Aurora Counties.  Following school he worked for various farmers until March 1950 when he was in a farm accident which broke his back.  He resided at the Colony of Mercy near Milltown, SD for several years and then spent a year at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, MN.  He returned to the Stickney area where he raised a garden, selling the produce and knitted sweaters and mittens and sold them.  After his mother died he resided with his brother Raymond and wife Eleanor for six years.  In 1966 he attended the Oklahoma State University of Technical Training in Okmulgee, OK to learn small engine and appliance repair.  He returned to Stickney and had a shop in his home until he moved to Sioux Falls where he worked at Elmen Rental and then the City of Sioux Falls until retiring.  For the past three and half years he was a resident of Firesteel Healthcare Center in Mitchell.

He is survived by two brothers, Elmer Prien and wife, Marion of Crossville, TN and Raymond Prien and wife, Eleanor of Stickney, SD; two sisters, Esther Simpson and husband, Jack of Cle Elum, WA and Mabel Schmit of Winner; a brother-in-law, Harold Crater and numerous nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Frederick and Walter, three sisters, Agnes Prien, Marie Crater and Bertha Crater.

You folks need to get your facts straight.If you'd read MY book, like I've tenllig you to, you'd know that all this pity the poor Indian stuff is a hoax. These people you're feeling so sorry for invaded the hemisphere and genocided the original inhabitants, along with all the big game. Having totally screwed up the environment, they've somehow contrived to make everybody else feel guilty about it, and now they're living out a free ride on the backs of hard working American taxpayers.
