Sarah was born in Stillwater, MN on February 28, 1931, to Will and Alice Curley, the youngest of three girls.  Her family moved to Foley. It was there she met the love of her life, Arnold.  Just 13 months later, at age 15, she lost both of her parents and moved back to Stillwater to be with her grandmother.  It was then that the long-distance romance began.  Arnold wrote her 199 love letters, saying they needed to be married before the 200th.  They married on August 19, 1950.  They made their home in Sartell, where they were soon blessed with a daughter, who became a big sister to six brothers.  They had no running water, and Sarah walked three blocks daily to get water for her family.  They decided that with that many children, they needed a farm, so they moved to Foreston.  After the move, they had two more boys and a FINALLY daughter.  They tragically lost a son at the age of five, but then became parents of another daughter, their 11th  child.

Sarah devoted her life to her family.  She filled their life with joy and boundless love while she filled their bellies with meat, potatoes, and fresh homemade bread.  Her love for her family grew when she was given 32 grandchildren and then 53 great-grandchildren. 

She is survived by her children, Cheryl Tischbirek of Duelm,  Tom (Joanne) Wojciechowski of Foreston, Rodney Wojciechowski of Foley, Kevin (Christine) Wojciechowski of McAllen TX, Craig (Eileen) Wojciechowski of Foreston, Mark Wojciechowski of Ronneby, Daniel (Cathy) Wojciechowski of Hill City, Gary Wojciechowski of Minneapolis, Susan Wojciechowski of Minneapolis and Amy (Darl) Beckworth of Foreston;  32 grandchildren and 53 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents;  husband, Arnold;  son, Tony;  son-in-law George; granddaughter, Nicole;  great-grandson, JT and sister, Cornie.
