Samantha Leigh Allen

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Samantha Leigh Allen, 14 months, Overland Park, Kan., died peacefully while in the loving arms of her mother and father, June 28, 2011.
Services for Samantha were held July 2 at St. Pius X Catholic Church, Mission, Kan.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy robbed Samantha of the ability to move and ultimately her life; however, it never touched her spirit or her smile. For over 14 months, Samantha touched the lives of so many people.
She is survived by her parents Mark and Angie Allen, Overland Park, Kan.; her grandparents, Barry and Carol Caster, Omaha, and Terry Allen, Shawnee, Kan.; great-grandparents, Ruth Vochatzer, Kansas City, Kan.; Geraldine Caster, Randolph; and Paul and Dorothy Schnieders, Randolph.
