Friends Remember Samantha Spady

People gathered in Beatrice Friday morning to remember the life of 19 year old Samantha Spady. “Amazing, beautiful, and kind,” were just a few of the words spoken at her funeral services.

Spady was a former cheerleader and student council president at Beatrice High School. In all, more than 400 friends and family members said their final goodbyes, evidence of the impact she had during her short life.

Spady, a college sophomore, was found dead on Sunday inside a fraternity house at Colorado State University. Alcohol poisoning is suspected to have played a role in her sudden death.
