Samantha Jo Brock McVey, 42, of Oak Hill, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 12 at the Bowers House after her courageous battle with cancer, with her husband and best friends by her side.
Born August 23, 1980 in Beckley, she was the daughter of the late Drema and Ross Brock.
Sam was a dedicated Lowe’s employee for 15 years with multiple awards in excellence. She was a kind and funny woman who was loved by all that knew her. She had a crude sense of humor and a larger-than-life personality that filled every room she entered. Sam had remarkable strength and poise, and never succumbed to self pity. She always had a rare and special aura that surrounded her. Sam loved her little farm where she raised many animals. She never met a stranger, was always the life of the party, and would dance to any beat. Sam enjoyed lake days, camping, hiking, riding the side by side, kayaking, and spent a lot of time on the Greenbrier River, where she had big dreams of retiring. She will always be remembered for her big, bright blue eyes and infectious laugh. Sam spent her final days surrounded by her loving husband and best friends that meant the most to her.
Sam is preceded in death by her Granny Daniels.
Those left to cherish her wonderful memory include her husband Adam, son Dustin, closest friends, Jessica, Rebekah, Becky, and Tonya; 5 siblings, Sabrina, Eli, Jake, Zack and Joe, step-father TJ, and a niece and nephew. Adam and close friends would like to give a special thanks to Joanne for her compassion and caring for Sam in her final weeks and to the hospice care team.
Visitation will be Friday, July 21 at 12pm at Tyree Funeral Home in Oak Hill. Funeral services will begin at 1:00pm with Dr. Emmitt Patterson officiating.
