Sammie loved to cut up with everyone and never met a stranger. She loved her cats and was known to some as The Cat Lady. She was an outdoors person and always enjoyed being outside with the flowers. Sammie was a fisherwoman at heart and loved to fish anytime she got a chance. She loved to take care of others.
Her 2 grandsons, Zach and Colten were the highlight of her life. She was happiest when she was spending time with her grandsons, by cheering Zach on at sporting events or listening to Colten play the trombone.
Sammie was a lifelong resident of Albertville who was a member of the 1963 class of Albertville High School. She was employed for many years at Creative Printer where she worked as a typesetter.
