Sarah Ellen Druliner, the daughter of William and Eada (Mack) Pollock, was born in Beatrice on April 29, 1924.
Sarah grew up in Beatrice, where she graduated high school and later attended Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln. She married Robert Goble on Jan. 16, 1943, and had three children: Kathy, Patty and Debe.
On Dec. 30, 1961, Sarah married Lloyd Sack and moved to Aurora. Lloyd’s children are Bill Sack, Aurora (deceased) and Steve Sack, Central City.
She married Ross Druliner of Benkelman on June 4, 1983, where they resided until moving back to Aurora. Ross’ children are Ed (Nadine) Druliner, Toledo, Ohio, Doug (Monnie) Druliner, Wheatridge, Colo., and Anita (Larry) Kitt of Parks.
Sarah loved Lloyd and Ross’ children and grandchildren and welcomed them all into her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her spouses, Robert Goble, Lloyd Sack, Ross Druliner, and her son-in-law, Jim Pollard.
Sarah loved music, dancing, Nebraska football, camping, her motor home and spending time outdoors and at the cabin. She had a very special place in her heart for animals.
She will be missed by her children and remembered for the sacrifices she made and her strength of character when faced with life’s adversities. Known as “Gram” by her grandchildren, she instilled in them the importance of family. She will be missed by her friends who enjoyed her quick Irish wit and sense of humor.
Those left to cherish her memory are her three daughters, Kathy Pollard, Patty (Mike) Newman and Debe (Mike) Merrick; five grandchildren, Jennifer (Mark) Steliga, Nathan (Carli) Israelson, Alex (Lindsey) Israelson, Rachel Newman and fiancé Steve Catlett, Chase Newman and Megan Dunlap and four great-grandchildren, Caitlin and Casey Steliga, Harlow Israelson and Jax Israelson.
