Sara Lynn (nee Galbreath) Gurski, 68, of Delafield,Wisconsin, passed away on October 7, 2022.
Sara was born on September 23, 1954, in Fort Leonard Wood, MO, and spent the early years of her childhood as an "army brat," as she affectionately referred to herself. She was raised by her father Paul Galbreath Jr., her aunt Eugenia (who she lovingly called Mom) and uncle Edward Wade, in Godfrey, Illinois. Sara graduated Alton High School in 1972, continuing her education at Lewis and Clark Community College, before pursuing a career in hotel management.
In the mid-80's, Sara moved to Wisconsin, eventually settling in Brookfield to marry Paul Gurski, forming a blended family of eight. Over the years, Sara's proudest accomplishments would include raising her children, spoiling her grandchildren, and care giving for many loved ones. As the last of her children reached adulthood, Sara found joy in a new career as a representative for Mortensen Photography, where she would remain for 15 years before eventually retiring to care for her husband.
Sara would be pleased to be remembered as a strong Irish woman, a gifted storyteller, and a traveler who took care to make lifelong friends with every journey. Sara loved visiting Disney World with her husband, spending quality time with her children and grandchildren, the magic of Christmas, and last but not least, all things elephant. Sara is survived by her children Lynett (Mark), Kimberly (Mike), Laurie (Ed), Mark (Michelle), Amy (Chris), Jeff (Becky), and grandchildren Devon, Sebastian, Bradley, Katie, Alex, Cody, Kyle, Nathaniel, and Benjamin.
The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff at Froedtert Menomonee Falls Memorial Hospital and Zilber Family Hospice who were so kind and compassionate in their care of Sara.
Sara expressed her wishes to spend eternity with her beloved husband Paul; their ashes will be laid to rest together in their final resting place at a later date, and a private memorial service will be held. In lieu of lowers, memorial donations may be donated in Sara's name to HAWS Humane Society in Waukesha.
