Services set for ex-Vik star Ramsay

Whether she was climbing, playing sports or mentoring her students, Samantha Ramsay kept her eyes on reaching new heights and helped others get there.

The 41-year-old mother of two, who excelled in volleyball and basketball at Coeur d'Alene High before playing volleyball at Penn State and Washington State, died on July 30 when she was struck by lightning near the summit of the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps.

A celebration of Ramsay's life will be held at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 1036 W. A St., in Moscow on Saturday, Aug. 19 at 11 a.m. A light lunch will follow in the fellowship hall/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
