February 10, 1947 - March 12, 2013
It is with a profound sense of sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Linda Wurm of the Peterson district. She was 66 years of age. Linda will be lovingly remembered by her mother, Fay (nee Hogan) Wurm; her sister, Judy Jones; niece Tracy (Mike) Roberts and their children, Mary Catherine and Michael of New Hampshire, USA; her aunt, Helen Wurm; and many treasured cousins, neighbours and friends who have been, and are, an endless source of support. Linda was predeceased by her father, Anton Wurm (1983). The first eight years of her life were spent on the farm. This ended, however, in 1955, when the family was forced to move off the land after extreme flooding. They ended up in Saskatoon where they would remain until Fay and Anton retired from their "city" jobs in 1975 to the land that they loved. Linda graduated from the College of Pharmacy in 1968. She began working part- time with Pinders Drugs in Saskatoon while still going to university, and then continued full-time with the firm until 1986. After that, Linda joined her sister Judy at Lakeview Pharmacy. They owned and operated that business for 10 years, when the appeal of country living came to life once again for them. Therefore, in 1996, Linda and Judy returned to the family farm that had been vacated after the death of Anton. The Prayer Service for Linda will be held on Friday, March 15, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., and the Funeral Mass will be offered on Saturday, March 16, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., celebrated by Fr. Joseph Ackerman, OSB. Both services will be held at St. Agnes R.C. Church, Peterson. Interment will take place at St. Agnes R.C. Cemetery at a later date. Memorial donations may be directed to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the St. Agnes Parish Fund. Schuler-Lefebvre Funeral Chapel, Humboldt, SK. (306-682-4114)
