The two were married for 38 years. Sam was a devoted nurse for more than 40 years. Sam joined Sutter Medical Clinic in 1989, when the family moved to Auburn, Calif., where she served her patients and her community.
Sam is survived by her two daughters, Tessa (Jeremy) Pedigo and Christie (Cesar) Cendejas; grandsons, Austin and Jacob Pedigo and soon-to-arrive granddaughter, Sofia Cendejas; brothers, Jay and Rick Russo, along with their families.
