Sarah Ann (Brennan) Reeves, 97, was born on July 10, 1919 to James and Florence (Meyers) Brennan in Douglas, Nebraska. She attended country school through the 8th grade near Adams, Nebraska and then attended Peru High School. While living in Peru, Sarah worked as a seamstress doing various sewing jobs for people. She was united in marriage to Silas Edward Reeves in Falls City, Nebraska. To this union two daughters, Darlene and Cathy, were born. The couple raised their family on a farm east of Peru where Sarah worked as a seamstress for the Army. She then worked at Swanson’s which later became the Campbell’s Soup Company in Tecumseh, Danny Dare in Syracuse, then retiring from Danny Dare in Auburn.

She then became a resident of the Long’s Creek Assisted Living Facility and later at Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Auburn. Sarah was a very hard working and loving person that carried many different jobs throughout her life. She was a devoted mother and farm wife that always put her family needs before her own.
