Brother Norbert Schruefer, C.SS.R., a native of Baltimore who was a baker in several communities of the Redemptorist order, died Friday of heart failure at the order's St. John Neumann Residence in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. He was 92.

The former George Schruefer entered the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers in 1925 at the provincial novitiate in Ilchester. He took his final vows in 1930.

Brother Norbert was a baker at the novitiate until 1928 and again from 1929 until 1977.

He had also been assigned to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church in New York City, and at St. Alphonsus College in Suffield, Conn., from 1977 until it closed in 1990.

His last assignment before moving to Saratoga Springs was at Sacred Heart of Jesus Roman Catholic Church, 600 S. Conkling St. in Baltimore, where a Mass of Christian burial was to be offered at 10 a.m. today.

He is survived by a sister, Agnes Schruefer of Springfield, Va.; and many nieces and nephews.
