McCOOK, Neb. — Delores Mae (Skraback) Gohl, age 89, of McCook, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, at Hillcrest Caring Center in McCook.

Delores was born Jan. 5, 1932, in Max, Neb., to parents, Carl and Doretta (Agena) Skraback. Delores attended country school at District No. 55 for eight years and graduated from Culbertson High School with the Class of 1949. She worked at Eat a Bit Café in Culbertson while attending classes, working nights and weekends. After graduation, she worked at Great Drug Store and Moffitt’s Café.

On Dec. 30, 1951, Delores was united in marriage to Harold Arvene Gohl. To this union four children were born: Teresa, DeLynn, DeWayne and Debra. The family made their home on a farm near Palisade.
