Janet Sampson Death, Obituary – We were not aware that Mrs. Janet Sampson had gone away until today, thus the news that she had done so has caused me to enter a state of sadness. She bled purple and gold as she spent decades instructing generations of Lynwood children whom she lovingly “Sampsonized.” She was a staunch supporter of the school.
She was a stalwart part of our community who bled purple and gold like they were her blood. She spent decades as a teacher, shaping the minds of several generations’ worth of Lynwood’s young people, and the entire while she did so, she bled the school colors of purple and gold. Despite the fact that her indelible imprint will continue to live on for years to come, the numerous Lynwood Knights that she had an impact on and the coworkers that she taught with will undoubtedly miss her.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family as they work through the grief that comes with the death of a loved one during this difficult time. Her three daughters are Patty Sampson, who lives in Aurora, Marylee (Clayton) Deeter, who lives in Joliet, and Janet (Brian) Rande, who also lives in Joliet. She is also survived by her two sisters, Sharon Troy of El Paso, Texas, and Patrice Troy of Albuquerque, New Mexico; her eight grandkids, Emilee, Colin, Riley, Ismarie, and Ismene Deeter; Brenna, Quinn, and Camden Rande; and her husband. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Ismene Deeter.
Her parents, Daniel and Elizabeth, a daughter who was still an infant, and a valued friend named Marvin “Buzz” Burris all passed away before she was born. She was the only member of her immediate family that had made it this far. She was the only member of her immediate family to have made it this far. Her other relatives had all perished.
