The Edward and Genevieve Jungels Scholarship Fund was established to provide scholarships to students pursuing studies within the field of veterinary medicine.
Edward Jungels (1929-2012) was born and raised in Aurora. He attended Sacred Heart Grade School, St. Nicholas School, and is a graduate of East Aurora High School.
For twenty-nine years, he worked at AllSteel in the tool room and was a member of the AllSteel Quarter Century Club.
Genevieve Jungels was also born and raised in Aurora. She attended Nicholson Elementary School and West Aurora High School.
She was employed by Pictorial Package in Aurora for ten years as a proof-reader.
In 1966, Mr. and Mrs. Jungels moved to Montgomery, Illinois.
In 2018, the Community Foundation received a bequest that endowed the fund.
Edward and Genevieve enjoyed many years of caring for several canine friends. It is in this spirit that they chose to establish a fund to provide support to future veterinarians.
