 Peterson, Samantha Paulette Zamora

It is with a heavy heart that the family of Samantha wishes to inform you that she went home to be with the Lord on October 8, 2017. Samantha, 46, was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Samantha is survived by her loving husband, Major Donavan D. Peterson; her son, Alexander James Peterson; her daughter, Katalina D’Alsandra Freeman; her son-in-law, Randall Freeman; her parents, Robert and Margaret Zamora; her sister, Andromeda Zamora; brother-in-law, Corey; her niece, Isabela; nephew, Samuel; also, her in-laws, Gary and Linda Peterson. She will be missed by many relatives, friends, and her swimming students, which were of great importance to Samantha.

Samantha, Donavan, and their children are a proud military family. As a proud military wife, she was able to experience life in many different areas of our great country. Samantha loved her family dearly. Her greatest happiness was spending time with the love of her life Donavan, as well as her children; Alex, Kat and Randy. She was the quintessential Disney fan who continually brought joy and happiness to others. Her care and compassion for people and animals was so strong that she often sacrificed her own needs for others. Although Samantha leaves us feeling greatly saddened, we will remember her by the good times and the joy she brought each of us in her special way. We are all going to miss her so very much. We would like to thank everyone for making her life an incredible Christian journey. Sleep tight Pooh Bear.
