Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
November 2, 1992 – October 15, 2023
Samantha, beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend, left an indelible mark on the hearts of everyone who had the privilege of knowing her.
Samantha’s life was a testament to love, kindness, and unwavering determination. Her most cherished role was that of a devoted mother to her son, Leland, whom she adored with all her heart. Samantha’s love knew no bounds; she embraced everyone around her, regardless of their past or circumstances. Her infectious energy lit up every room she entered, filling it with warmth and joy.
Samantha had a spirit as strong as her beloved motorcycle rides. She was tenacious and courageous, standing up for what was right, especially when it came to advocating for her son. Her resilience was a testament to her strength and determination, inspiring all who witnessed her bravery. Samantha was the epitome of a fighter, the strongest and hardest we have ever known.
As the eldest sibling, she took on the responsibility of keeping her younger siblings in line, showing them the importance of family bonds and the strength found in unity. Samantha was the nurturing soul, always the “mom” of the group, caring for everyone as if they were her own.
Her generosity knew no bounds; even in times of scarcity, Samantha was selfless, giving to those she loved without a second thought. Her stubbornness, a trait she wielded for good, empowered her to fight for her beliefs, making her a true inspiration to all who knew her.
Samantha’s love and kindness reverberated through the lives of countless people, leaving behind a legacy of compassion and resilience. Now, she rests in Heaven, her battles behind her, leaving us with the memory of a woman who faced life’s challenges with unmatched courage and determination.
Samantha is preceded by her grandparents George, Sharon, and Bill. She was survived by her loving mother, Tina, her father, Carl, her stepfather, Bill, her sisters, Angela, Anna, and Makayla, her brother, CJ, grandmother Beverly, and her beloved son, Leland. Their hearts are filled with the love and strength she shared, and her memory will forever be a guiding light in their lives.
In this time of profound sorrow, let us remember Samantha’s spirit and carry her love forward, living our lives with the same selflessness and determination that she exemplified.
A celebration of Samantha’s life will be held on Sunday, October 22nd at 3:00 PM at Blue Springs Christian Church in Blue Springs, Missouri. In lieu of an over abundance of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made for a trust for her surviving son Leland. Flowers can be sent to Blue Springs Christian Church on Sunday before the service. The family also requests that attendees bring a photo of them with Sami with a note or memory written on the back for a memory box for Leland.
May Samantha’s soul find eternal peace, and may her memory continue to inspire us all.
