Sara Rose Ochs (nee Gartner) was born on October 10, 1949 in Macklin Saskatchewan to George and Theodora. She was the third of fourteen children. Sara grew up in Macklin where she attended school and helped care for her younger siblings. When she was 19 she moved to Edmonton where she worked at Canadian Linen for 5 years.
In October 1972 Sara went to a dance in Landis where she met her future husband, Bill Ochs. They were married on October 13, 1973 in Macklin and moved to a farm north of Landis where they lived for their whole married life. Sara enjoyed life on the farm where she and Bill operated a mixed farm. They were blessed with two children Danny in 1977 and Tammy in 1979.
Sara was very talented at sewing, crocheting, gardening and baking. She was known for homemade egg noodles, cinnamon buns and Nanaimo squares, and enjoyed teaching these skills to friends and family. Sara loved to play cards and had a special fondness for the game of Bunnock which the family calls “Bones”. She looked forward to her weekly coffee visit with friends in Landis, and was always especially happy when her family and friends came to visit.
Sara was a beautiful patient teacher, always caring and kind made everyone feel like family. She was said to be the “favorite sister”. A friend said since she passed on her birthday she is a Golden Angel, which is a very fitting as she had a heart of gold.
Sara is survived by her husband Bill, son Danny (Amie), daughter Tammy (Steve), step grandchildren Esther (Brandon) and Luke and step great-granddaughter Riley. Her siblings Sheila (Barry) Busch, Cyril (Gwenn) Gartner, Mary Jane (Tom) Metzger, Bertillie Gartner, Patrick (Monda) Gartner, Benita Colwell and Joy (Pierre) Gagnon. Her brother-in-law Jim (Judy) Ochs as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents George and Theodora, her sister Elaine, brother Severin and brother-in-law Gary.
A celebration of life will be held for Sara on Saturday, November 11th, 2023 at 2:00pm at the Landis Community Complex in Landis, SK.
Memorial donations in honour of Sara may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan #200-4545 Parliament Ave., Regina, SK S4W 0G3.
