Ramsay Family Memorial Fund

Dr. Samantha Ramsay died suddenly in a tragic accident in the Swiss Alps. The Ramsay family suffered the loss of Samantha's husband, Rob Ramsay, a year ago after a long battle with brain cancer. The couple is survived by their two sons, Ryan and Reidar. Sam was the daughter of Patti Perry and sister of Sarah Liliquist, who are both members of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Both have served the chapter as advisers and House Board members. Patti has dedicated many years and countless hours to the Beta Kappa chapter. In honor of Sam and in support of her family, please consider a donation to the family. We cannot imagine the loss this family has felt over the last year, but if we can do anything to help support them through this painful time, it's in remembering our bonds of sisterhood and honoring the gifts they have shared with Kappa.
I have worked with Patti closely over the last 6 years as a Kappa adviser, and she has not only become a mentor to me, but a dear friend. I have regularly traveled from my home in McCall, Idaho to work with the Beta Kappa chapter--Patti traveling from Coeur d'Alene, sometimes weekly, to assisit the chapter for years as Membership Adviser,  then House Board President, and now as the House Board Treasurer. Over the years, one thing has become so clear to me, and it is the great love and dedication that Patti and her husband, Butch, have for their family. Their kids and grandkids are the center of their world, and when Patti isn't helping Kappa, she is helping her family.
I have set up this GoFundMe account with Patti as the beneficiary, and have designated that the funds be used however the family sees fit. Hopefully we can help offset some of the travel expenses they may face, or help contribuite to educational opportunities for Sam's children. (If you know the Perry-Ramsay family, you know how paramount education is in their lives.)
Thank you for your support of this incredible family. Beta Kappa would not be where it is today without them, and neither would many of us.
