Faculty and staff at the University of Idaho began mourning one of their own Monday when it was announced Samantha Ramsay, an assistant professor of nutrition at the Margaret Ritchie School of Family and Consumer Sciences, died Sunday after being struck by lightning while climbing the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps.

Ramsay, the former Sam Spink, was a volleyball and basketball standout at Coeur d’Alene High School. She went on to play at Penn State and Washington State University.

Ramsay’s husband, former professional baseball player Rob Ramsay, died Aug. 4, 2016, after a yearslong battle with brain cancer. The couple is survived by two sons, Ryan, 12, and Reidar, 9.

Samantha Ramsay, 41, was “always on the go,” family friend Shawn O’Neal said. “She was the most alive person I ever knew. She and Rob both were.”
