Last November, Catholic Social Services of Southern Nebraska lost a special friend and colleague, Sandie Gonnerman. Sandie was an accountant for CSS for over a quarter-century and was always eager to celebrate coworkers' accomplishments, work anniversaries, or birthdays. In fact, she was the unofficial CSS party planner. Her door was always open to coworkers wanting to share a laugh, talk about grandkids or golf, or enjoy a seemingly endless supply of chocolate. She often shared her motto: Life is short. Eat dessert first.
Sandie was born on March 11, 1955, in Carroll, Iowa. She graduated from Kuemper High School and Briar Cliff College in 1977 and earned a Master’s Degree in accounting from the University of South Dakota. She worked for Postal Finance in Sioux City, Iowa, where she met Rodney. They married on August 11, 1979, in Dedham, Iowa, and lived and worked in Sioux City until 1988 when they relocated to Lincoln. Sandie and Rod raised six children: Katherine Anne, Laura Leigh, Cheryl Lynn, Matthew Charles, Daniel Stephen, and Stephanie Mae.

Hillcrest Country Club takes pride in its course's rich heritage. In 1929, U.S. Open champion Walter Hagen and French Open Champion Horton Smith were among the first to compete on the course designed by William A. Tucker Sr. Since then, many tournaments and events have been held at Hillcrest, including a contest between the legendary Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.
Large, established trees and out-of-town feel, set Hillcrest apart from today's newer courses. The 18-hole course boasts a nearly 600-yard par 5, a challenging pair of short par 3 holes, and practice facilities that include a 500-yard driving range, and beautifully-manicured putting and chipping greens. These amenities make Hillcrest a true golfer's course.
