Lynn Torgunrud February 21, 1958 ~ January 5, 2021 It is with great sadness that the family of Lynn Torgunrud of Birch Hills, SK, announce her passing on January 5, 2021, in Prince Albert, SK, at the age of 62. Lynn was born to William and Elsie (nee Harper) Ozmun on February 21, 1958 in Calgary, AB on her mom’s 21st birthday. They lived in Calgary, AB until they moved back to their roots in Birch Hills, SK. Lynn started grade five in Birch Hills, SK and continued her schooling there until she graduated. She spent her childhood summers, and beyond at the family cabin, in Emma Lake, SK. On May 9, 1981, Lynn married Gaylen Torgunrud. To their marriage, they welcomed two children, Skylar and Stephanie. Lynn spent her career working with the public. When the children were little, she worked for Action Towing and Parkland Ambulance. Once the children were grown, she worked at Country Crosswords Restaurant in Wakaw, SK for many years. From there, she went to Tim Hortons in Prince Albert, SK, and became manager. Her final working years were spent at the Birch Hills CO-OP. Lynn enjoyed crossword puzzles, playing board games, cards, and bingo, country music concerts, shopping trips to Rapid City, SD, and Deadwood, SD. Lynn loved watching her sisters travel. She would watch their flights, and just before the plane landed, she would send messages to say they landed safe and have a great holiday. Every day Lynn would watch re-runs of Little House on the Prairie. Many other hours were spent watching Elvis movies, musicals, and her very favorite Grease. Lynn’s favorite colour was red. Lynn loved sharing her birthday with her mom, they never spent one of Lynn’s birthdays apart. In the last few years, the most wonderful thing happened to Lynn. She welcomed two grandsons into her life. They became the number one reason for her happiness.
