Sarah Grell Memorial & Grell Family Fund

The world lost a beautiful woman far too early on Monday, May 24, 2021, when Sarah Grell (39) was tragically killed in a car accident while on duty as a MN State Conservation Officer.  She leaves behind her husband Gene Grell, and 3 children, William (13), Jordyn (4) and Geno (2) as well as many family, friends and co-workers.

Sarah had been a conservation officer since 2005, following in her family's footsteps as her uncle, father and grandfather all worked as conservation officers, while her husband works for the DNR's Forestry Division and her mother was employed by DNR Fisheries. 

Sarah was a daughter, sister, mother, wife, aunt, cousin and beloved friend.  She will be missed each and every day. 

These funds will help support the Grell family with memorial expenses and their family's future needs. The funds will be going directly to Sarah's husband, Gene Grell.

*per GoFundMe and their rules, I must add the following information: 
My name is Freya Dick, and I am from Grand Rapids, MN.  I have known Sarah and Gene Grell for many years.  We've traveled, adventured, laughed,  cried and so much more together. I miss her so much already.

*Gabrielle Gropp, Gene Grell's sister, will be helping her brother manage this fund.
