In Loving Memory of Sammy & Jolie

Donation protected
We are devastated by the tragic loss of two beautiful young girls who were taken from us far too soon hit by a wrong way driver on I95 this past weekend. Samantha & Jolie brought joy and laughter into the lives of everyone they touched. Unfortunately, their lives were cut short, leaving their families and communities heartbroken.

Your generous donations will go directly towards allowing the families to create a lasting tribute in their memory. As we mourn their untimely passing, we are inspired to celebrate the joy and love they brought into the world during their time with us.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to...
Norwalk Next Step a community transition program that works with students 18-22, to effectively become valued members of their community. Sammy & Jolie would be so proud of this effort.
A multi-year scholarship for the Norwalk High School Girls’ Soccer team beginning with the 2024-2025 school year: details forthcoming. Sammy and Jolie were the co-managers for the team and loved getting geared up in their Bears green and whites while cheering on their team. Their school and team spirit were infectious!

In their memory, Sammy and Jolie shared a love of the beach and could often be found at Calf Pasture Beach taking in the ocean, sunrises and sunsets, so, with the City of Norwalk we will be installing a memorial bench where family and friends can treasure their happy place. We will keep this page updated on any ceremonial details.

Every contribution, no matter the size, will make a meaningful difference and will be deeply appreciated. If you are unable to donate please pass along and keep Sammy, Jolie & their families in your prayers.This page is designed to help both families.

Thank you for your kindness, compassion, and generosity during this heartbreaking time.
