Memorial Service for Our Brother, Virgil Vogt
Updated: Nov 17, 2021
Virgil Vogt, our brother and former pastor, passed peacefully to be with the Lord on November 2, 2021, surrounded by family. We grieve with his wife, Joan, their five children and spouses, and their 14 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, and the many, many, others who were touched by Virgil's love and ministry over his 87 years.
The Memorial will be held on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at 1:30 pm, followed by a reception from 3 to 5 pm to allow for more sharing of stories. Events will take place at First Presbyterian Church of Evanston,** located at 1427 Chicago Avenue in Evanston, Illinois, 60201. The service will also be livestreamed from this link: https://firstpresevanston.org/vogt/

**We are so grateful to our neighbors at First Presbyterian Church, with whom Virgil had close relationships over the years, for allowing us to hold this event in their space! The Memorial will be too big for the Reba Place Church Meetinghouse in this season of needing more space between people.
