Samantha was born June 10, 1989. She went to be with the Lord on July 1. She was 22 years old.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Monday, July 4, at Liberty Baptist Church, 2717 W. Roundbunch Rd, Bridge City. Officiating will be Brother Bill Collier.

Cremation is under the direction of Claybar Funeral Home.

She is survived by her husband, Anthony Daniel Burch and their daughter, Astra Jade Burch. She is also survived by her father, Carl Murphy and sister, Carli Murphy; grandparents, Joe and Betty Murphy and other various relatives.

Sam lived a relatively short life, but she lived it like she wanted to take it all in as much as she could. She was quick to laugh and even quicker to let you know if she didn’t like something or someone. She found the love of her life, Anthony, and they married on October 17, 2008. They had their highs and lows as many young couples do, but their highest high was when their daughter Astra Jade was born on July 31, 2009.

What a ride it has been for this little family, but for now their paths are taking a different direction, Sam has gone on ahead to be with our Lord and her loved ones who have gone before her and Anthony and Astra still have more roads to travel together until they all meet again someday.
