Vernon J. Vogel, son of William M. Vogel and Anna M. Miller Vogel, was born in Stuttgart on August 6, 1911 and passed away early Sunday morning, March 13 at the Phillips County Hospital, Phillipsburg, at the age of 76.
Vernon was baptized on August 27, 1911 in the Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Stuttgart by the Rev. Otto Rossbach and was confirmed on July 5, 1925 by the Rev. F. Schardt.
He attended school in Stuttgart. On February 22, 1933 he was united in marriage to Lena Kathryn Boethin at the American Lutheran Parsonage in Kensington by the Rev. E. A. Stein.
They farmed west of Phillipsburg for a time and then Vernie worked in the oil fields for 35 years before he retired. After his retirement Vernie still farmed on the Otto Boethin farm.
He was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Phillipsburg and the Men's Club.

organist Donna Jean Townley.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF OUR UNCLE VERNON VOGEL
God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we couldn't bear to lose you
We could not ask you to stay.
A Golden Heart stopped beating
Hard working hands laid to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
That he only takes the best.
Sadly missed by Roger and Kaye Waterman
and daughters Melanie and Tammy.
