Rocci, Samantha - Merced  
SAMANTHA SUSAN ROCCI Nov. 29, 1968 - July 18, 2015 Samantha "Sam" Susan Rocci, born in Fullerton, California, to Garry William Erik Johnson and Nancy Elizabeth (Pool) Johnson, passed away after an almost year-long fight with Leukemia on July 18, 2015.  Sam grew up in Diamond Bar, Calif., as a young child and then Campbell, California. She did a lot of traveling with her parents and twin brother and sister and spent time abroad as an exchange student in England in college.  She interned for Norman Minetta, former United States Secretary of Transportation, while he was a congressman in the United States House of Representatives representing the Silicon Valley area.  Sam was an avid lover of music and one fateful day she went to see the Grateful Dead at Shoreline Amphitheater where she met her husband Michael "Mike" Thomas Rocci. Sam and Mike married on September 24, 1994, at New Brighton State Beach near Capitola, Calif. They resided in Seal Beach, Calif., through 1997 at which time they moved to Oceanside, Calif. After a short stint in Oceanside, they moved to Vista, Calif. Sam became pregnant with their twin boys and Mike's work with the parent company of the Merced Sun-Star moved them to Merced in July of 2000 where they settled down to raise their children. In 2003 they had their daughter.  Sam was a stay-at-home mom to her three children and homeschooled the kids with the guidance of Hickman Charter School. Sam taught her kids with an enthusiasm to look further than simply what was expected of them. She would often turn simple everyday tasks or activities into a broader learning experience.       If you ever met Sam, you would remember her. Her smile would light up every room she went into, and she absolutely enjoyed engaging with people in any way possible. She had a strong devotion to her kids, husband, family and extended family.   One of her favorite sayings was, "That you need to learn when to dance in the rain." She loved spending time with her parents at their Morro Bay home. Whenever it got too hot in Merced, Sam would head to the beach with the kids to visit her parents. Her other true joys were 49er games, the beach and camping and hiking in Yosemite.  Sam earned her B.A. degree in Liberal Arts from San Marcos State University, Calif. She was working on her teaching credential when she became a mother and decided to spend time at home raising her children. She had just been offered employment at Hickman Charter School when she was diagnosed.  Sam went through a heroic battle with her disease. She went through two induction chemotherapies, one consolidation chemotherapy, and then finally went through a bone marrow transplant on May 5, 2015, all at Stanford Hospital's Cancer Center. The staff at Stanford did everything in their power, but unfortunately, in the end, they were unable to save her.   Sam is survived by her loving husband of nearly 21 years, Michael Rocci; twin boys, Christopher and Anthony Rocci; daughter, Anne Rocci; parents, Garry and Nancy Johnson; sister, Liz Lauer, and brother, Dirk Johnson.  In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at https://www. lls.org. Or if you want to donate to the family, go to gofund.me/szzwxs.  A Visitation and viewing will be held Monday, August 3, from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at Wilson Family Funeral Chapel, 525 W. 20th St., Merced, Calif. Following will be a Celebration of Sam's Life at Playhouse Merced, 452 W Main St., Merced, Calif. Expect tie dyes, Grateful Dead, laughter and tears. All are invited to join us for some food and refreshments to share in Sam's memories. www.cvobituaries.com
