Rebecca Nara's death was announced by a family friend on CaringBridge Wednesday.

The post, in part, stated "She peacefully went while surrounded by friends and family. While this is truly a tragedy, it has saved her family from having to give the order to transition her to comfort care. Rebecca was a registered organ donor with healthy organs to pass on to others in need."

The Lake County Sheriff's Office says the Nara fell about 30 feet last Saturday. The fall happened in the lower falls area of the park.

Life Link flew the woman to a Duluth hospital for treatment.
