Sarah N. Seldin

September 30, 1935 – August 23, 2022

Sarah N. Seldin passed away on August 23, 2022. She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Theodore M. Seldin. Sarah was born in Waterloo, Iowa, on September 30, 1935, to parents Rose and Morris Nadler. She attended the University of Iowa and completed her degree at Omaha University.

A creative innovator, Sarah was a trailblazer of apartment and home renovation in the Omaha community when few women were involved in this field of work. One of her most notable projects was the Pickard School Apartment renovation. Her insight into housing renewal projects led to an appointment on a Nebraska committee by then-governor Bob Kerry. She was involved in numerous committees for the local chapter of the National Homebuilders Association and a volunteer in community organizations.

Most of all, Sarah was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She is survived by daughters Stephanie (Rodger) Howard, and Beth (Amnon) Dotan. She is also survived by those she enjoyed the most of all: grandchildren Liatte Dotan, Yonatan Dotan, Alex Howard, and Adam Howard, and Yorkie canine companion Precious.

Sarah and her husband, Ted, were grateful for the years of care and friendship from Carolyn and Ed Mercer, Elene Galloway, Dennis Mercer, Theresa Swoboda, and numerous devoted caregivers in Omaha and Rancho Mirage, California.

Memorials to the Omaha Jewish Federation Foundation.

The family will hold a Private Graveside Service.
