Samantha Marie Lilley (28) of Emmett, Idaho was taken home to our Heavenly Father on May 26, 2021. Samantha was born on May 31, 1992 in Edmonds, Washington.
In 1993 she relocated to Boise, Idaho, at one-year of age, then on to Emmett, Idaho in 2001 where she resided for approximately 20 years. During those years, Samantha explored the United Stated, spending time in Washington, Colorado, California, and Florida. However, she always considered Emmett to be her home with her family.
Samantha loved cheer leading, the Dallas Cowboys, family, and friends. She loved to make people laugh, to help others. Despite her own needs, she went out of her way to take care of those she loved. She loved music and playing the violin with her cousins. Most of all, Samantha loved her big brother, Christopher and enjoyed their fishing trips together. She dreamed of working in the medical field, although her health issues derailed her dreams at times, she experienced several different careers, and finally settled in the insurance industry. Samantha loved her family including many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephew. She was resilient, kind, caring, passionate, and fun-loving.
Samantha was preceded in death by her grandparents, Thomas Joseph Miller, Victoria Janeal (Atkinson) Miller. She is survived by her brother, Christopher Thomas Lilley: her parents, Cynthia Marie (Miller) Brice and Daniel Lee Brice, grandparents, Gerald Grant and Barbara Miller, Glenda S. Miller, and Donna and Gary Ackley.
