Kathleen L. "Kitty" Samms Obituary
Samms, Kathleen L. (Kitty)
87 passed from this world on August 25, 2015. Kathleen was born in Ashland, Kentucky on April 20, 1928. She moved to Phoenix in 1956 when her husband was transferred from Kentucky to Arizona. Kathleen was preceded in death by her parents, five sisters and one brother. She is survived by her husband Earl Samms and four children: Roger Samms, Karla Clark, Jack Samms and Earl Samms II; six granddaughters: Elizabeth Siner, Sarah Samms, Rachel Samms, Brittany Samms, Brooke Samms and Melissa Stamps; four grandsons: Brogan Samms, Nathan Samms, Peyton Samms and Christopher Samms; and one great granddaughter Arianna Siner. She was a kind and generous person that could meet a stranger and immediately become great friends. She could meet anyone and start a conversation that would last for some time. She was a wife and mother for 67 years and conducted prayer meetings in her home for a large number of her Christian friends. She was actively involved in her church as a praise singer until injuries prevented her from continuing. She was a nonsmoker, never consumed alcoholic beverages or used a curse word. We are grateful for the Hospice of the Valley's support and care during her last days. A memorial service will be held at the Covenant of Grace Church Sat. Aug. 29th at 11 AM. Internment at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona at Cave Creek will be at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Alzheimer's Research.
