Bryson City/Canton – On Saturday, March 3, 2018, Samantha Lynn White Harris, age 27, was carried home by the angels.

Samantha was born November 5, 1990.  She had resided most of her life in Haywood County before making her home in Bryson City for the past seven years.  She was the daughter of Kimberly Sue Harris of Canton and Marty Lynn White of Canton.  Samantha had been employed as a home health caregiver in Bryson City.  She was a loving mother and cherished her time with her boys, Bently and Braxton. As we remember our beloved Samantha, let us know that perhaps the stars are windows in heaven where the love of those we have lost shine down to let us know they are at peace.

Preceding her in death is her grandfather, Milford Millisock.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her sons; Bently Robert Harris of the home and his father, Raymond Thomasson of Bryson City and Braxton Paul Edward Fisher of the home and his father, Timothy Ray Fisher, Jr. of Bryson City; her grandparents, Joe Robert Harris of Canton, Phyllis King of Canton and Edna Millisock of Canton and many other family members who loved Samantha.

A Celebration of Life Service for Samantha will be held at 4:00 p.m. Thursday, March 8, 2018 in the chapel of Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Canton. Pastor Bobby Rogers will be officiating.   The family will be welcoming and receiving friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.

Memorial donations may be made in Samantha’s memory to: Mission Health Dept. of Philanthropy, Mission Children’s Hospital, PO Box 5363, Asheville, NC 28813.

Although we only knew her a short time as she cared for Catt. Sam was a wonderful caring loving young lady. We enjoyed the time we were fortunate to spend with her and she will be much missed.

To all the Harris family, My prayers are with you. I taught Samantha in Acteens years ago. I remember a sweet girl full of life and always a smile. I know there must be a lot of questions. I do know we serve a God who is all knowing. My you find comfort in the Lord during this time. My thoughts and prayers and love to you all. Psalms 91:4

I've known Samantha since she was a small child and I was blessed to have her ride my bus where we developed a friendship. I was her substitute teacher for many classes.. Samantha was a beautiful sweet and loving girl. I'm just so heartbroken for all of you especially those two sweet little boys. I pray that God will give you comfort and that your beautiful memories of her will bring smiles. God bless you and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
