The Westminster Fire Co extends its sympathy to the family of Jeannie Vogel

The Westminster Fire Co extends its sympathy to the family of Jeannie Vogel of JeannieBird Baking Co who died in today’s traffic accident.
The Westminster Fire Co extends its sympathy to the family and loved ones of Jeannie Vogel of the JeannieBird Baking Co., our neighbor on Main St in Westminster, who died in today’s traffic accident. Ms. Vogel was a lovely person who steadfastly supported the Westminster community and the Westminster Fire Department. We lift Jeannie and her family, co-workers, and friends into our hearts and pray for comfort and healing at this terrible time. She will be greatly missed.

We also say a prayer for the firefighters, EMS personnel, state highway workers, and police officers who left their homes in the middle of night to respond to this terrible accident. They fought the fire, freezing temperatures, ice, and multiple dangers of the accident this morning at Rte. 27 and Kate Wagner Road.

God of earth and air, water and fire, height and depth, we pray for those who work in danger,

Who rush in to bring hope and help and comfort when others flee to safety,

Whose mission is to seek and save, serve and protect, and whose presence embodies the protection of the Good Shepherd.

Give them caution and concern for one another, so that in safety they may do what must be done, under your watchful eye.

Support them in their courage and dedication that they may continue to save lives, ease pain, and mend the torn fabric of lives and social order. Amen.


Police believe owner of JeannieBird bakery killed in Route 27 crash

Police believe the owner of a popular Westminster bakery and café was killed in fiery traffic crash involving a tractor trailer on Route 27 early Friday morning.

Because of the severity of the injuries, Maryland State Police investigators were unable to positively confirm the identification of the deceased victim prior to autopsy results from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. However, based on evidence retrieved from the scene of the crash, in addition to information received from family members, investigators believe the victim was Jeannie Vogel.

Vogel, 53, co-owned JeannieBird Baking Company on Main Street in Westminster. The crash occurred shortly after 4 a.m. when the tractor-trailer struck the vehicle Vogel was driving, causing both vehicles to catch fire…
