MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - A nurse supervisor in the Upper Peninsula is trying to raise money for a new marker at the grave of an Iranian woman whose organs saved the lives of seven people.

Gail Brandly says many people have visited the Marquette cemetery and left flowers after reading an Associated Press story a year ago about Sanaz (SAH’-na) Nezami’s tragic death so far from home.

But Brandly says the grave is hard to find, especially in winter, because the marker is flat. She’s trying to raise $5,000 for an above-ground marker on www.crowdrise.com .

Nezami was killed by her husband in 2013 after moving to Michigan to attend Michigan Technological University.

Brandly works at Marquette General Hospital. Nezami’s family in Iran communicated with staff over online video and approved the extraordinary organ donation.
