Loving mother and wife, always known for her smile, Samantha always knew how to make people's day brighter and happier. She loved her cows and flowers; her garden was as green as the hay she fed her cattle. She would always have a name for every calf born on the ranch and would mourn the day they had to leave. She had a heart as big as the sun and even brighter. She enjoyed people's company, so she enjoyed being in the retail business. Sam owned her own jewelry store in Cloudcroft, NM. She always took pride in her work and loved every minute of it. Sam will be missed by everyone, those who knew her and those who loved her the most. May her star forever shine.
