Born on March 14, 1931 in Carroll, Iowa, Victor Joseph was the son of Joseph and Anna (Kohorst) Wernimont. The family lived in Auburn and then moved to Carroll where he attended St. Lawrence Grade School and later graduated from Carroll High School. On April 15, 1952, Victor was united in marriage to Florence Renze at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Roselle. Victor worked for Heinrich Carpet, laying flooring and also assisted his father grinding feed for farm animals. Later, he and his brother took over the business which was named Twin Feeds. During the same time, Victor was a licensed plumber and was skilled at fixing anything you gave him. If the right part was not available, he would go to his tool shed and make it. Victor also worked with heavy equipment for Jocko Judge digging basements in the Carroll area, earning him the reputation as the best “Cat Skinner” in the area. He then moved to a farm near Roselle and farmed until 1975 when he semi-retired following a trucking accident. A life-long Catholic, Victor was active in Holy Angels Church and also served as a Eucharistic Minister. Victor is survived by his wife of 65 years, Florence Wernimont of Roselle; his children: Richard (Karen) Wernimont of Lidderdale and Diane (Edward) Przepiorski of Sacramento, CA; 4 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; his siblings: Marilyn (Joe) Stahl of California, Shirley Rupiper of Okoboji, Franklin Wernimont of Arizona, and Floyd Wernimont of Colorado; his sisters-in-law: Laura Wernimont of Carroll, Lois Wernimont of Missouri, Donna Wernimont of Texas, and Marian Kuker of Texas; as well as other extended relatives and many friends. Victor was preceded in death by his parents; a son, Victor Jr. in infancy; and his siblings: twin brother, Virgil Wernimont, Clarence Wernimont, Dennis Wernimont, Lois Skalla, and Joseph Wernimont in infancy.
