Sara Orth Obituary, Death – Sara Orth (née Hansen), who was 34 years old at the time of her death on July 2, 2016, was riding a motorbike when she and her husband, Collin, were involved in a horrific accident. Sara Hansen joined her older sisters, Anne and Lori, when she was born on August 21, 1981 in Princeton, Minnesota to parents Glen and Sharon Hansen. On September 20, 1981, she publicly professed her beliefs by being baptized as a Christian. She spent her childhood in Princeton running about outside, playing with her sisters, and singing together almost wherever they went. At Bethany Lutheran Church, on May 7, 1995, she was given the sacrament of confirmation to further solidify her beliefs. She received her high school diploma from Princeton in 1999 and went on to study at Bethany Lutheran College.
After their wedding on June 24, 2000, she and her husband relocated to Woodbury, Minnesota. They were given the gift of children in the form of Isaac and Samuel. After their marriage ended in divorce in the year 2002, Sara and her two sons moved back in with her parents in Princeton, where they were warmly received. She put in a lot of effort at Coborns in order to provide for her little family, and then she went on to begin a new profession as a Customer Service Agent at Princeton Insurance Agency. During the summer of 2005, Sara got reacquainted with Collin Orth, a former classmate who had graduated from PHS at the same time as she had in 1999. They instantly realized that their connection was one that was destined to last.
On July 15, 2006, they exchanged vows, and soon after, Collin became a father to Isaac and Samuel. Caleb and Hannah were both born to Sara and Collin in the lovely home that they constructed in Milaca, Minnesota, where they currently reside. at 2009, Sara started working for Wells Fargo as an Insurance Service Representative at the Minneapolis location. In November of 2015, she left her job to seek a new employment as the Head Bookkeeper for Coborns, located in the Princeton location. Sara had a stunning singing voice and was able to perfectly sync with her sisters no matter what they were singing. She was talented at the piano as well as the organ, and she performed both of those instruments at Bethany Lutheran Church.
Sara had a giggle that was infectious and loved her family and friends with all of her heart. Spending time with friends, playing BINGO, going to the movies, going out to eat, being outside with her family, hunting, fishing, and participating in a variety of other activities with her devoted husband and adorable children were some of her favorite things to do. Sara’s connection with her parents and sisters was one of openness and warmth from the beginning. She was a cherished aunt, and her presence will be sorely missed. Her snarky and humorous attitude was in stark contrast to her tremendous sensitivity and emotional depth. She enjoyed being a mother and helping her children participate in a wide variety of activities the most of all.
Isaac shared his thoughts, “Mom always listened to the music I liked, regardless of whether she liked it or not, and her smile meant that she would always love me no matter what dumb stuff I did.” Sam has stated that his mother “was so loving and was always there when I needed someone to talk to.” Little Hannah has inherited her mother’s spunkiness and talent for making other people laugh, and Caleb will never forget the “sweet kisses and hugs” that his mother gave him. Sara is survived by her parents, Glen and Sharon Hansen, of Princeton; her children, Isaac (15), Samuel (14), Caleb (9), and Hannah (2); her sisters Anne Mundt (Andrew) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Lori Resendiz (Hector) of St. Paul, Minnesota; in addition to a large number of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
