Samantha "Sam" Danielle Reed

December 8, 1990 — May 6, 2024


Samantha Danielle Reed, 33, of Bellevue, passed away on May 6, 2024 at Ascension Borgess in Kalamazoo, MI. She was born on December 8, 1990 to James "Jim" (Tracy) Reed and Susan Marie (Harris) Gary in Marshall, MI. She graduated from Marshall High School in 2008. 


Sam loved to work on cars with her dad, Jim. She loved to be outdoors, going camping and fishing was just a couple of her past times she enjoyed. Sam would help her mom, Sue, with the family garden and would also help anyone who needed her help, as she was very generous with her time. Sam didn't complain about anything, and she wasn't afraid to speak her mind. Most important aspect of Sam was that she loved her children.
