Samantha touched everyone she met with her joyful heart, exuberant spirit, and incredible wit. She was fearless and lived life to its fullest, always ready to try something new or seek out new experiences. Samantha started school in Jasper, Minnesota and graduated from Luverne High School, where she played flute in the Luverne High School band. She was an avid reader, particularly of the Harry Potter books, and was incredibly hard working. Samantha began working at Pamida in Luverne, Minnesota, and most recently was the manager for both Papa John's and Chilly Billy's on the University of Minnesota campus. While at the U she was majoring in Linguistics with a minor in Spanish, with plans to be a Spanish interpreter. She was a fan of Audrey Hepburn, and was so excited to get to visit the Tiffany's store in New York with her aunt Vicki and uncle Brian over the summer.
We were all blessed to have her in our lives for the short time she was here. We will carry her memory with us always.
After the internment at St. Mary's in Alvord, IA, family and friends are invited to gather for fellowship at Vicki Peterson's house at 47949 258th St, Brandon, SD.
