Vicki Lynn Bowers was born on April 16, 1956, in Clark, South Dakota, to parents Reamer and Helen (Claussen) Bowers. She was baptized as an infant and confirmed in her youth at the Peace Lutheran Church. She attended school in Clark and following high school, Vicki earned her medical assistant certificate from Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, South Dakota.
On September 27, 1975, Vicki was united in marriage to Tom Wurscher at her church in Clark. The couple made their home in Lucan, Minnesota, for a few years before moving to Milroy in 1978. Vicki worked several jobs including waitress at her aunt’s bar, the Imperial Lounge in Clark, SD, secretary for the local Ag Service and Creamery in Milroy, Johnson’s Jewelry in Redwood Falls, Wabasso Grain & Feed, secretary for Wurscher Elevator Construction, Milroy City Clerk, Milroy School and then the Oasis in Milroy. She was a large part of the community. From being part of the Lions Club to taking the lead on various community activities, Vicki’s willingness to serve others will be missed by many.
Vicki’s enjoyments in life included bowling, billiards, playing Bunco, and tending to her flowers. She lived to be a mother and grandmother. Her family and friends were her passion and she was also known to take in the community. Vicki was a second mother to many and an extension of family to her friends.
