Samantha "Sammi" Henehan, 23, of Scranton, died unexpectedly Sunday of a drug overdose.
Born in Scranton, daughter of Martin and Stacy Schmidt Henehan, she was educated in Scranton public schools and recently employed by Wells Fargo. She was kind and loving to all who knew her and was quick to lend a hand to all who were struggling with the disease of addiction. Sammi was beautiful inside and out, the apple of her mother's eye, and never spoke a harsh word about anyone.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Edward L. Henehan; and her cousin, "Bubba" Roy John Sherman Jr.
The funeral will be Friday at 9:45 a.m. from the Thomas J. Hughes Funeral Home Inc., 1240 St. Ann's St., with Mass of Christian Burial at 10 in St. Ann's Basilica. Interment, Cathedral Cemetery.
