Samantha was the definition of larger-than-life as she battled cancer since age two and taught us to love life no matter what and laugh at the small things. Samantha never let her treatments get in the way of doing what she wanted to do whether it was playing softball with a port in her chest or learning to ride a horse. Schooling and school activities were a priority to Samantha, she was currently a senior at Spring Creek High school and always worked hard to have good grades. She participated and excelled in many school activities such as FFA, cheer, golf, student council, junior and high school rodeo, softball, and more. Samantha was often told that she had limitations or would not be able to do something and she always found a way. Samantha even delayed chemo to participate In queening, barrel racing, and pole bending to be crowned the Silver State Stampede Princess.
Samantha loved her family, her mom is her best friend and she is the best sister who taught her brothers things that they would never have learned in life. Samantha married the love of her life and partner in crime on August 6, 2022. Samantha made friends easily and many of them became family. Samantha also loved her animals including Faith and Tiny.
