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 (1926-2016) 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.
