Samantha was born on March 3, 2010 into a large blended family; she has always been surrounded by lots of love. Our Super Sam had many passions in her life, which included playing with her friends and sisters, as well as riding horses, playing superheroes and princesses, and building lego. In July 2014, Samantha was diagnosed with aggressive leukemia. In two years, she went through 13 rounds of aggressive chemotherapy, radiation and a bone marrow transplant. She faced every challenge with bravery  and grace.  In our hearts, cancer did not win this battle. Sam lived her life with passion. She embraced every moment of joy and happiness, even when she was faced with the biggest battles in her life. Samantha touched the lives of many people; Super Sam will always be our Super Hero.

A Memorial service will take place at 11am on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at Kamloops Alliance Church, 200 Leigh Rd., with Pastor Tim Busse officiating.

Please wear your favourite Superhero or Princess Attire!

Memorial donations in Samantha’s name may be made to Ronald McDonald House B.C. or Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
