DAVENPORT — Funeral services to celebrate the life of Samantha Jo Lackey, 23, a resident of Davenport, will be noon Monday, November 6, 2017, at the Halligan McCabe DeVries Funeral Home, downtown Davenport. Burial will be in Oakdale Memorial Gardens, Davenport. The family will greet friends from 11 a.m. until the time of the service. Samantha passed away Sunday, October 29, 2017, at her home.

Samantha Jo was born on April 29, 1994, in Davenport, a daughter of William Joseph and Amy (Christner) Lackey.

Samantha had a free spirit. She was very blunt, but sweet and kind about it! She could dislike you, but would still give you the shirt of her back. She enjoyed being a prankster and was deathly afraid of frogs. Samantha was a daddy’s girl and adored all her family. She loved to do hair and always made sure her eyebrows were “on fleek.” She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Among survivors are her parents, William and Amy Lackey, Riverview, Florida; siblings, Tara Christer, Davenport, William Lackey Jr. (Samantha Corral-Lackey) Riverview, Florida, Raymond Lackey (Rachel Cain), Davenport, Rebecca Lackey (Clemmie Kirk), Davenport; grandfathers, Homer Christner and Monk, Carthage, Tennessee; best friend, Kari Tumlinson, Davenport; and many other extended family.

She was preceded in death by grandmothers, Glenda and Betty; uncles, Raymond, Sam and Tom; and an aunt, Laura. Online remembrances and condolences may be expressed to the family by visiting Samantha’s obituary at www.hmdfuneralhome.com
