One-of-a-kind grief club helps Minnesotans navigate loss

CHANHASSEN, Minn. — It’s something everyone will face, but few know how to face it: the loss of a loved one.

Savannah Spirov knows it well. Her father immigrated from Yugoslavia, and died in August of organ failure.

“His name was Prejov, his American name Pete,” she said. “He was one of a kind, such a character, you noticed when he walked in the room.  He loved Elton John so much, I feel like I always have to say that when I talk about him, because I have so many memories of him playing the piano.”

Amidst the pain, she sought help – at the new Grief Club of Minnesota in Chanhassen.
