b_271_203_16777215_00_images_stories_virgil.jpgVirgil farmed in Crescent City, Illinois for 50 years. Now he provides spiritual caregiving to our residents.

Over 40 years ago, Virgil joined the group of innovative people that saw the need to care for a struggling older generation and were motivated to ask Lutheran churches in central Illinois to help.

Along with a short stay by his wife, Virgil’s mother, father and aunt lived at Prairieview for many years. He has seen firsthand that there is no other place like Prairieview. When members of his family lived here, Prairieview became their home.

“I would like the residents who live here to comprehend God’s love and feel His arms around them. His love never quits, even in a difficult position.”
