Samantha was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina on June 14, 1991, to Kimberly and Francis Babeu. She graduated from China Spring High School with a fiery passion for art in heart and a love for running in the soles of her feet. She continued her education at McLennan Community College.

She is preceded in death by her Grandfather Jim Bell. Samantha is survived by her parents Kimberly Babeu and Francis Babeu of China Spring, her siblings Tiffany Babeu, Joshua Babeu, and Elijah Babeu, her grandparents Raymond Babeu, Helen Babeu, and Beverly Bell, as well as many loved Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. The love that Samantha had for her family and friends will never be forgotten.

The family would like to especially thank the nurses and doctors at Providence who cared for her and for their tremendous support during this difficult time. Her life will live on through the people that received her organs and they hopefully will live a long life because of her generosity and kindness. Her beautiful shining soul will be remembered forever by everyone that was close to her.
