But her longtime partner, Dr. Tam E. O'Shaughnessy, is a very accomplished woman in her own right.
O'Shaughnessy was by Sally Ride's side throughout the astronaut's 17-month battle against cancer, and before Ride became ill they co-authored four books, including "Mission: Planet Earth: Our World and Its Climate - and How Humans Are Changing Them" and "Voyager: An Adventure to the Edge of the Solar System."
...
O'Shaughnessy, a professor emerita of school psychology at San Diego State University, is also chief operating officer and executive vice president of Sally Ride's foundation, named Sally Ride Science , where the duo and their staff nurtured young students and worked to encourage them to pursue their passions in science, tech, engineering and math.

As we remember Dr. Ride, we also extend our love and sympathy to her loving partner, Tam O'Shaughnessy.
