Obituary for Vivian E. Wasmund

Worthington, MN

     Vivian Elaine (Boyer) Wasmund, 83, was born September 19, 1927, on a farm in Round Lake, MN, the daughter of Henry W. and Myrtle E. (Gorst) Boyer. She attended school in Round Lake and graduated in 1945. As a young girl, she worked on the family farm and helped on her brother’s and sister’s farms driving tractors and doing many other chores around the farm. Vivian worked at Farmers produce in Worthington and at Sather Cookie Company in Round Lake for 13 years. She worked various jobs as a waitress, housekeeper, carpenter and mechanic. Vivian married Eugene (Bill) Sowles on May 7, 1949, and they moved to Round Lake, where they worked and raised their five children. Vivian helped Bill do concrete work by carrying block, bags of cement, and mixing mud just right! They were later divorced and Bill preceded her in death on August 8, 2010. Vivian married Walter Wasmund on August 19, 1977. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren; they were the highlight of her day. Vivian also loved fishing, playing on the pool league for 17 years, board games and cards, and working outdoors (mowing her children’s lawns). She enjoyed visiting with people and always had the coffee pot on. Vivian passed away on Friday, October 1, 2010, at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Jackson, MN.
