Funeral for Samantha Rose

Dear Family & Friends,

I am writing to you today to let you know about the loss of our beloved Samantha.
She is survived by her daughter Amanda. Samantha and I have been best of friends since high school for over 20 years and her sudden passing took us all out of surprise. My heart ache over this devastating news and i am trying to make sense to all of this.

On Friday October 2, 2020  Samantha had a stroke and was admitted to Good Samaritan Hospital that morning. She was intubated, and sedated before having surgery to remove the embolism from the left side of her brain.  After surgery she had a  CT scan imaging to confirmed that all embolism was removed. On Saturday October 3, 2020 her breathing tube was removed and she was breathing on her own.

She was still sedated going in and out of consciousness. On Sunday October 4, 2020 she was doing much better turning on her own moving both legs but was having issues with moving her right arm. On Wednesday October 7, 2020 she was doing much better she smile and nodded her head. On Thursday October 8, 2020 when hospital staff was trying to move her she started to cough and had trouble breathing.

While the hospital staff was trying to help her and insert a new breathing tube her heart had stopped.  The nurses, doctors, and respiratory staff proceeded to perform CPR for about 30 minutes before they had to call it.  It was so sudden and unexpected that we loss our Samantha. 

They will be a viewing for her coming up. I will update everybody on the date. Due to the pandemic they will be limitation on how many people that can come to the funeral service. Currently the family is making arrangements so we will keep you updated.

We are absolutely devastated by Samantha’s passing. And would greatly appreciate the help towards her funeral service. Here is a breakdown of all the costs involved in the funeral service for Samantha.

Independent autopsy $5000
Cremation $2000
Rose Garden Viewing (to be updated)

We will need to pay all funeral costs by Monday October 12, 2020.
So please consider donating if you are able to do so. We are so very grateful for every donation during this difficult time.

With love,
Sean Gentle
