Sara Zearbaugh Frigge, MSN, APRN, CPNP-PC Nursing Scholarship
Bloomington, Fort Wayne, IUPUI
The Sara Zearbaugh Frigge, MSN, APRN, CPNP-PC Nursing Scholarship was established in 2023 in loving memory by Sara Zearbaugh Frigge's parents, Marty and Phyllis Zearbaugh. Sara's family and friends wish to honor her. Sara loved nothing more in life than being a mom to her children, Gabriella J. "Ella" Hanlon, Keely M. "Keely Mo" Hanlon, Camilla R. "Millie" Hanlon, and Andrew M. "Drewby" Frigge. A loving wife by her husband, Nathan K. Frigge. A loving sister by Amanda J. and her husband Brian, Laurie. A truly dedicated family member and friend to numerous others.
Sara had a heart of gold and loved caring for all of the children. She obtained her bachelor's degree in nursing from Purdue University. While at Purdue, she was at the top of her class in the Sigma Theta Tau honor society. She went on to get her master's degree in nursing from Indiana University. Sara developed her love of nursing while interning at Step by Step Pediatrics. Her career in nursing included a variety of roles including the PICU and Labor and Delivery at Methodist Hospital, Pediatric Emergency at IU West, and Labor and Delivery at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines Iowa. Sara loved working as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at Kidd Pediatrics; and
Sara always saw the good in everyone and everything. She had a great sense of humor, incredible smile, and positive attitude that touched everyone she came in contact with. It was Sara's wish that everyone perform an act of kindness and pay it forward, by example, returning a lost item or even simply returning the cart to the cart corral. This is something that can be continued for years to come to honor Sara's kindness that she shared with everyone she came into contact with.
