After that, her perfect little family was complete.
Samantha loved her children more than anything in life and although she raised them alone, she made sure she provided for them and gave them many experiences growing up. She wanted nothing but the best for her babies.
Samantha always had a passion for cooking and baking, even as a young child. As she got older, her cooking became well-known among her family and friends. She loved to be in charge of making the feasts, whether holidays for family or just a cookout with friends. No one left hungry nor dissatisfied.
Samantha loved serving others; as she had said, her love language was acts of service. She happily baked and decorated cakes for anyone in need. She was a natural in the kitchen and was so passionate about it.

Samantha always had the heart to help others. Even if she didn’t have what was needed, she would always find a way to help another person. She was a very generous and selfless woman. She became a CNA, working in nursing homes and home care.
