WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Financial donations are needed for a multi-phase memorial garden at Monk Botanical Gardens in Wausau.

In 2019, the idea to honor Sara Quirt-Sann was developed. She was one of four people killed in a shooting on March 22, 2017.

Sara’s Storybook Garden is a passion project of Quirt-Sann’s friends and colleagues.

Initial plans stated the garden would cost $1 million to complete.

Sara’s Storybook Garden will bring together a few of the things that Sara Quirt-Sann was most passionate about.

“Her love of literature. You would find her routinely, while she’s waiting between cases, reading a book,” De Vos said, a colleague of Quirt-Sann, and committee member. “Her love of gardening. She was actually taking classes to become a master gardener. Her main course of work was as a guardian ad litem, so she was actually an advocate for children,” said Robyn De Vos during an interview with NewsChannel 7 in 2019.

The Marathon County Bar Association will match donations up to a total of $10,000 until Aug. 31.
