She joined her grandparents, and other relatives in her heavenly transition on July 11, 2023. Sam loved singing, fishing, and loved Popeye’s chicken. 

Sam accepted Christ as her savior at an early age and united with King’s Chapel Congregational Church, Alpine, Alabama.  She recently rededicated her life to Christ and was baptized again.  

Sam received her education in the Talladega County School System and graduated from Childersburg High School with the class of 1984.  She furthered her education and attended Gadsden State Community College and Herzing University, Birmingham, Alabama where she received her Medical Insurance Billing and Coding Certificate in 2018.  She was employed with Russell Mills Corporation for over 10 years until its closure.
