In Memory of Linda Skweres
Linda M. Skweres, age 73 of Hayward, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth, MN.
Linda May was born July 26, 1945 in Chicago, IL, the daughter of Joseph and Genevieve (Durlak) Kurowski. She will never be forgotten because she loved everyone and treated everyone equally. Linda was a lover of life. She raised six of her own children and hundreds of other people’s kids too. She was a clown- meaning that literally. She was once “Pockets the Clown” at Mom and Pops’ restaurant called Buda’s Bowow’s in Chicago, IL. Linda spent most of her life in the restaurant business, and eventually owned Grandma’s Hayward Inn. She will be missed and loved in death as she was in life.
Linda is survived by four sons Daniel Jr. (Donna), Alpharatta, GA, Robert (Paula), Drummond, WI, Joe (Debbie), Hayward, and John (Marla), Sandusky, OH; two daughters April Skweres (Dave), Hayward, and Barb (Phillip) Martin, Hayward; 18 grandchildren; 20 great grandchildren; six brothers Jerome, Harold, Kenneth, Gary, Richard and Doug Kurowski; her sister Jacqueline Simons; and many nephews and nieces.
