Darlene Marie Vauck was born August 5, 1929, in Grafton, NE the daughter of Herman Henry Ulmer and Martha (Nicolaus) Ulmer. She was educated in Grafton and was the president of her class when she graduated from Grafton High School in 1946. She was confirmed at Hope Reformed Church. On September 7, 1947, she married Ralph James “Bud” Vauck at the Federated Church.
Darlene and Bud raised four daughters: Diane, Carol, Patricia, and Judy. The family lived in and around Sutton where Darlene worked as a homemaker and helped Bud with his farming and other enterprises. For several years she and Bud were co-owner/operators of the Carson Hotel in Sutton. Darlene supported her family’s involvement in 4-H, enjoyed guiding and entertaining her young grandchildren, and was active in the women’s circle at the Federated Church. During the difficult years of Bud’s battle with brain cancer Darlene was the primary caregiver. She enjoyed and was highly skilled at embroidery, and her innumerable blocks of embroidery have enhanced the beauty of dozens of quilts.
