Vande Gevel
Birth: April 1, 1885

Death: October 27, 1951

House: St. Norbert Abbey

Our brother Augustine Vande Gevel was born in Son, Holland in 1885.  After coming to the United States, he entered the Order in 1907 and was solemnly professed in 1912.  From 1913 until 1917, he assisted at St. John’s in Essexville and in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Pastoring across the states seems to have been Augustine’s lot.  In 1919, he was in Valier, Montana; in ’25, at St. Louis in Dykesville; in ’29 at St. William in Shelby, Montana; in ’38, in West Vancouver; in ’43, Sunnyside and Valley, Washington; and in ’46, at Rosiere on the Belgian Peninsula in Wisconsin. 

Augustine retired in 1951, and sailed for his homeland in Holland, where he died Saturday, October 27th, at the age of 66.
