Wynona Unruh was born June 11, 1920 in rural Munich, ND, the eldest daughter of Dietrich and Anna (Hoffman) Dick. She was educated at Rose Hill Public School. Wynona met Dietrich Unruh and they were married on January 1, 1943. After their marriage, Wynona and Dietrich moved to Warroad, MN, for a few years and later moved back to Munich, then on to Clyde, ND, where they farmed until moving to Juneau, AK, in 1962. In 1965, they moved to Dallas, Oregon for 2 ½ years, then back to the Clyde/Munich area to live. Wynona loved gardening and maintained a large vegetable garden. She also enjoyed woodworking and quilting. (She would help her husband finish his woodworking projects.) Wynona was very active in Christian work wherever she lived, including mission work in Alaska. If she wasn’t farming, she was traveling — Mexico, the Holy Land, Germany and more. In later years, many winter months were spent in Southern states. Wynona lived in Munich until going into a retirement home in Devils Lake in 2008. Wynona is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Kenneth and Dorcas Unruh of Bloomburg, TX; grandchildren, Anne-Marie Black, Robert Black, James Unruh; great-grandchildren, Christian Gonzales and John Black; sister, Lilah Dick of Munich; brother, Newton (Eunice) Dick of Lorena, TX; sister-in-law, Dorothy Dick of Richey, MT; and many nieces and nephews.
