      Mrs. John E. Wurm, well known club woman of Huron county and former president of the Huron County Federation of Women's Clubs, passed away at her home in Sebewaing late Sunday, June 3, after a long illness.

      Sarah Elizabeth Monroe was born in Elgin county, Ontario, Dec. 19, 1869 and came with her parents in early youth to Cass City where she was graduated from high school and entered the vocation of teaching in public schools. On Jan. 3, 1905, she was united in marriage with John E. Wurm at Millersburg, Mich. They made their home at Elkton until 1909 when they moved to Pigeon, residing there until 1924 when they moved to Sebewaing.

For two years she was president of the Huron County Federation of Women's Clubs, two years president of the County Association of East Star, chairman of Health and Narcotic Public Welfare Work and advisory member of the board, and reporter of the Study Club of Sebewaing.

      Mrs. Wurm was exceptionally capable and at all time showed a willingness to co-operate with her co-workers in the promotion of the welfare of the several organizations to which she belonged. Her judgement and advice was frequently solicited.

      Besides her husband she is survived by her mother, Mrs. Nancy Munroe, Elkton, two brothers, Dr. D. J. Munroe, Elkton, and Dr. Neal Munroe, Rogers City, and one sister, Mrs. M. M. Lease, of Great Falls, Montana.
