Samantha was a happy spirited woman. Her most favourite pastimes were being with her grandchildren. Oh how she loved her babies – so much that the big beautiful smile on her face would not leave when she spoke of her grandchildren. She received her education at Pelican Rapids School until grade eight and then went on to Cranberry Portage, Manitoba. Samantha moved all over Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta following her husband Joe to where his employment lead him. She was always happy to be home with family, especially visiting Kookim Vitaline and Choom Roderick as well as Gilbert and Grace. Sam is going to be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was a great and beautiful sister.
