It is with great sadness we share that on April 10th, 2023 our beautiful Samantha Jean Curnow was taken from us at the young age of 34 years old, while at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, less than 48 hours after giving birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl.
Sam was born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA. She loved music & going to concerts, traveling, and spending time at the beach (the wall at Butterfly Beach was her favorite spot) But above absolutely everything else, Sam loved being a mom to her daughters Sadie and Coco.
Samantha will be remembered as a fierce and loyal mother, daughter, sister, partner and friend. Her sense of humor, goofiness, amazing sense of style and her intelligence will be sorely missed.
Samantha is survived by her father Brandon Curnow (Suzanne), mother Kathleen Huff-Valencia, sister Amanda Curnow, daughters Sadie Khashoggi (and her father, Ali) & Colette Chapman, her partner Colin Chapman and many extended family members.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday June 4th, 2023 at a location to be announced. Updates will be shared on Facebook and on the GoFundMe that has been created to support her daughters: gofundme.com/f/samantha-curnow
