It is with immense sorrow that we inform you that Samantha passed away on July 13, 2020. She provided dedicated and compassionate care to children in the greater Canyon County area for 15 years. She spent her clinical days caring for patients, training the next generation of nurse practitioners, and advocating for the well-being of her community.
Our organization is hurting along with her family and loved ones. Samantha's death at just 45 years old is a heartbreaking consequence of the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a life-long learner and community-minded caregiver, Samantha's husband and four children say she wanted to make a difference. They believe she would want her death not to be in vain, but to serve as a stark reminder that people must do whatever they can to protect themselves and others and take this pandemic seriously.
