We’re overwhelmed with the outpouring of tributes to Samantha,” he said. “She led a very full, charmed and authentic life. She was very passionate about her art and worked up until her last days voicing animated characters and living as full a life as she possibly could.” He also shared that the photos posted on Samantha’s unverified Instagram on May 15 were created by the actor herself to be used in her farewell post. The photos show her smiling and floating among the cosmos.

After two and a half years of cancer treatment, and a lifetime of jet setting around the world, voicing a plethora of cartoon animals, making music, and knowing more about life than most people ever will, she is off on her next adventure,” the post reads.

She married Michael Knutson on October 29, 2022, and the two honeymooned in Japan. In an article for Love What Matters, published last July, Weinstein, who also performed in a punk rock band called Killer Virgins, reflected on getting diagnosed with cancer at the age of 25 and falling in love with Knutson. The two went on their first date a week after her cancer diagnosis.

First dates were nerve wracking enough, but I had just received some devastating news the week before- it was cancer. Talk about scaring a guy off!” she wrote. “Eyes fixed on the dirt ground of the dog park, I told him I’d been diagnosed with a rare ovarian germ-cell yolk sac tumor, and I’d be starting chemotherapy in just a few months. I held my breath, squeezed my eyes shut, and waited for the inevitable rejection… but it never came.”
