St. Anthony Foundation is Beneficiary of Vincent Langel Estate

Friday, 08 April 2011

This week, Mary Kay Wernimont, Ron Langel, and Bill Rupiper, niece and nephews of Vince delivered on that promise and presented a check for $10,000. 

“Uncle Vince was very proud of St. Anthony Regional Hospital.  He often mentioned how great it was that people did not have to travel long distances for services such as dialysis and cancer care. He would be especially proud that the new Veteran’s Clinic is now caring for area military veterans right here at St. Anthony,” said Ron Langel, nephew and executor of the estate.

“We appreciate Vince’s thoughtful consideration of St. Anthony when he developed his estate plan,” said Gary Riedmann, President of St. Anthony Regional Hospital and Nursing Home.  “His gift will make a significant, positive difference as we provide quality, caring healthcare services and spiritual care for area residents.”

Mr. Langel grew up in the Templeton area. As a young adult, he farmed with his Dad. In 1941, Vince entered the U.S. Army and served during World War II with the 52nd Armored Infantry Battalion at the Battle of the Bulge. In April 1945, he was wounded in action and received the Bronze Battle Star and Purple Heart. Following military service Vince came home to farm with his father. He also raised cattle and was a hog buyer for Hygrade Food Products. Mr. Langel enjoyed spending time with family and friends and had many hobbies.
