Anetta Averbook (1993) believed Sarah Oreckovsky Averbook was born in a village, or "dorf", called Oreckov, or Oreckovsky. David Averbook (1993) said his grandmother, Sarah, used to talk about Novoukrainka. In the Ukraine, Sarah had three baby girls who died in an epidemic before the family came to America. Azreal came to America first; then Sarah came alone with Israel and Joseph Mandy, with 9 month old Abraham in her arms. Th bribed soldiers to allow them to escape across the river. The soldiers shot at them anyway. Sarah was petite, less than five feet tall, so others had to carry her baby to ford the river. They hid in chicken coops and barns on their journey out. The four of them sailed from Hamburg about May, 1892, went through Ellis Island, New York, and took the train to join Azrael in Superior, Wisconsin. Anita Averbook Ravage, in 1993, said that Sarah was famous for her hospitality to travelling Jewish peddlers and others who needed a kosher meal. There were very few Jews. People coming from Europe would know this was a good place to stop. She had a larder always full of food - enough to feed 30 people. Azreal was a yeshiva "bukher." If possible, the wife engaged in some small business to earn some money, so the husband could sit in the synagogue during the day to study the Talmud. She was a very smart business woman in America. She bought property with every penny. He was a tailor but never made much money. He was an intellectual and very learned - even honored - but not a good businessman. She was vain, dressed beautifully, and was a wonderful hostess. She earned them a beautiful home and wealth, also. Aneta Averbook, watching her grandmother Sarah, who lived next door, get dressed one day, asked, "Grandma, why are you putting on so many petticoats and clothes?" Sarah replied, "I want to look fat, because rich people are fat." Sarah would wear custom-made high heel shoes and mink capes. She was glamorous and had the nickname "rakha mima", or "rich aunt." Of course, this created jealousies among some relatives. Aneta remembered that Duluth relatives would come to Superior to be entertained on Sundays. The family was close, supportive. But "it was not all wine and roses. There were also frictions and jealousies, and some people wouldn't speak to each other." Sarah lived the last part of her life at the home of her youngest child, Abraham B. Averbook, and his wife, Clara, in Superior, Wisconsin, where she died 29 December 1941, 9 Tevet in the Jewish calendar.
