Sandra Jean Grothe, age 82, of Edina, Minnesota passed away peacefully with family by her side on April 1, 2020.

She is survived by her brother, Jerome (Judith) Grothe, sister Karen (Larry) Freiheit, and many nieces and nephews.
Sandy was a devout Christian with a strong work ethic. She worked at her favorite job in the law library of Winthrop & Weinstine for over 20 years, and didn't fully resign until early 2020.

Special thanks to the Fairview Southdale ICU department for taking such good care of Sandy during her final days.
