Lucille Angus

Monday, September 12, 2005

Lucille (Wurth) Angus, 89, of Le Mars, formerly of Minneapolis, Minn., died Monday, Sept. 12, 2005, at Plymouth Manor Care Center in Le Mars.

The former Lucille Catherine Wurth was born Aug. 20, 1916, on a farm northwest of Oyens, the daughter of John P. and Marie (Heissel) Wurth, and a twin sister to Louis Wurth. She attended a rural grade school and St. Catherine's Parochial School at Oyens. In 1931-32 Lucille attended St. Mary's Catholic High School in Remsen. In her later teen years, she lived and worked in Sioux City and then moved to Los Angeles, Calif. In the late 1930s, she moved to Minneapolis and worked with the Welander-Quist Funeral Home. Lucille Wurth married Robert Angus and he died in 1968. She attended business school in Minneapolis and later was employed as a secretary for three brokers with Piper Jaffrey and Hopwood until her retirement in 1978.

She moved from Minneapolis to Floyd Valley Apartments in Le Mars so that she could be closer to her twin brother and his family. Lu had no children of her own, so she cherished her nieces and nephews.

Lucille was a talented seamstress and designed and made much of the clothing she wore. This talent dated back to her high school days.

Survivors include two brothers, Bill Wurth of Chinook, Mont., and twin brother Louis Wurth of Le Mars; a sister Rosalie Hunter of West Plains, Mo.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert Angus; two brothers, Fidelis Wurth and Oswald Wurth; three sisters, Mrs. Lawrence (Elizabeth) Tentinger, Mrs. Carl (Barbara) King, and Mrs. Cy (Margaret) Syverson; two nephews, Don Wurth and Jerry Wurth; and a great-niece Angela Wurth.     

A private family burial will be on Wednesday at St. Catherine's Catholic Cemetery in Oyens.

Visitation will be anytime after 6 p.m. today (Tuesday) at the Feuerstein Funeral Home in Le Mars, where there will be a family rosary at 7 p.m.
