NORTON – Sandra Jean (King) Samaco, 75, passed away September 30, 2020, after a long illness. Born January 2, 1945, in Denver, Colorado, she was the daughter of Lawrence Forrest King and Madeline Marie (Diefendorf) King. Sandra graduated from Kenmore High School in 1963 before dedicating her life to serving as an adoring wife, raising kind children and investing in careers outside her home where she managed several family rental properties, assisted her brothers with their carpet businesses and embarked on a successful real estate career with Rubber City Realty.

She will be sadly missed by her loving husband, Joseph; children, Cheryl Lynn and William Joseph (Shemara); siblings Babs Bishop (Jonathan) and Dennis King (Patricia); granddaughters Brittney Elizabeth Samaco and Tiffany Jean Samaco; numerous beloved nieces and nephews; and her favorite furry companion Boo Boo.
