A bit about me:

Samantha was a Beautiful and intelligent young woman. She was a social butterfly, known, loved and missed by so many. She was in beauty Pageants as a toddler.Winning many tiaras from Scranton to Pittsburgh PA. She excelled in School. She became a personal banker at Wells Fargo. Coming in top 3 in NEPA for banking at the age of 22. She would go to work in business attire, to come home to change to ride her motorcycle. She was a free spirit and was very proud of her tattoo’s. One being her favorite city of brotherly love Philadelphia. Samantha was always one to stick up for others being bullied and she would always route for the underdog. Samantha was sober for 3 years before relapsing. She helped a lot of young woman begin their journey in sobriety. They still credit Samantha for them still being sober today. She had only one sibling her little Brother Marty Henehan Jr. who she loved and adored. And he loved her the same. He took up Boxing to deal with her loss. He fights every fight in her memory. She was Daddy’s little girl. And was the apple of her Mothers eye . She was not just my Daughter she was my best friend. She had a bubbly personality and we always enjoyed our quality time together. My heart was forever broken April 10,2016.
