Sara Kathleen Ose was born on December 2, 1970 in Mankato, Minnesota. She grew up in Thief River Falls, Minnesota with her parents, Lillian and Ken Ose, and her brothers, David and Eric. From an early age, Sara was an accomplished flutist with a knack for teaching herself how to play a variety of instruments. Sara graduated from Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls, Minnesota in 1989, where she was a member of the jazz band, marching band and drama club. Sara then attended college at Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, where she earned an Associates Degree. Sara then attended Augsburg University, where she studied religion and was a member of the Concert Band.
Sara worked at Allianz Life Insurance Company in Minneapolis as a Compliance Officer for more than 15 years. In her time away from work, Sara bred, raised, raced, and showed her beloved borzois and was active in the Twin Cities borzoi community.
My lovely borzoi, Luka, came from Sara. When I went to her house to meet her and see the puppies, we found that both our first borzoi were litter mates. It was a nice coincidence.
Lynda Lee says
I don’t remember if we met at dog shows or dog races. But we attended many of the same events and had many wonderful conversations. Eventually my daughter (also Sara) showed some of Sara’s borzois. Sara and I were supposed to get together for coffee (aka conversation) this summer and catch up as I was unable this past year due to work and health issues. 😭
Shirley and Phil Everson says

Your light made this world a better place. Now you’re a star in the sky watching over us. Thank you for being you. See you on the other side
Barbara Solga says
Sara and I’ve been great friends since she got Devon from me. He was her heart dog. As well as her entry into the show / coursing world of Borzoi!
I will miss knowing she’s going about her life with her beloved dogs. Getting updates and sharing stories of some of the crazy things life deals us as time goes by.
Greg Dosser says
So sorry for your loss Eric…
So sorry to hear this. My prayers and thoughts go with you all! I remember Sara fondly from my youth growing up in church and school with David.
Heather Varnado says
Sara and I solidified our friendship through our mutual love of music in middle school. She was a kind loving soul. She will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have made a connection with her.
Anita Cholewa says
Sara was the heart and soul of our dog racing club for many many years – she kept us going through thick and thin. And a fantastic mentor to me personally. She will be sorely missed.
Janice Parrow says
Sara was a great mentor and friend to me in the performance dog world. We shared many hugs which I will be missing. Much sympathy to her family and friends.

I am so sorry to hear about Sara’s passing. I remember her well from dog events, she was always a hard worker and volunteer. She will be missed by many.
Susan Motisi says
I met Sara at a coursing event in MN long ago. She was always friendly and had some lovely dogs. My granddaughter Lily enjoyed showing some of Sara’s dogs for her. We missed her at the GTCBC specialty this year. I’m sure she was there in Spirit.
Sara had a very kind soul. she left us far to early.
Judy Andersen says
I remember Sara’s birth and childhood very well, since we spent a lot of time together in our families in those days. I had gotten reacquainted recently and enjoyed talking with her about family connections, her life in Cambridge and her beautiful dogs. Love to you, Eric and David and family as you remember her.
