Samantha Herrboldt: 1986-2022
Samantha Jo Herrboldt was born on Sunday, Nov. 2, 1986 in Freeman, S.D., to Terry Herrboldt and Sara Dangel Herrboldt. Just two days after she was born, it was noted in the local newspaper, Little Samantha Jo Herrboldt was the youngest to attend the Olivet Soup and Pie Supper. Her Grandma Frances was holding her on her lap and would not let anyone else hold her as she told people “She is fine right where she is, on my lap” because she was so excited for a new grandbaby!
Samantha, known to everyone as “Sam,” had shared her continuous smile, laugh, and countless hugs and kisses. She especially loved spending time with her two children, Teghan and Oaklee, whom she loved dearly.
Her favorite pastimes were watching movies—putting one funny line in any movie on repeat 100 times and laughing and laughing and going out to eat with family at Hibachi and Mongolian Grill. She also enjoyed shopping. Halloween was her all-time favorite holiday. Samantha also loved listening to music, singing and dancing.
Sam loved seeing people and visiting with them and they loved her company. She made many friends at her part-time job at The Rec Bar in Scotland, S.D., working alongside her brother, Sean. She also had a full-time job at Family Dollar in Tyndall, S.D. where she was the store manager and recently had accepted the management position in Beresford, S.D.
Samantha, 35, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, June 5, 2022. Grateful to have shared Samantha’s life are her children, Teghan and Oaklee; her parents, Sara Herrboldt and Terry (Diane) Herrboldt; her siblings, Brigette, Fabre, Jake, Shelly, Sean and Matt; many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Samantha is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Raymond and Agnes Dangel; her paternal grandparents, Ewald and Frances Herrboldt and her siblings, Candi, Chad and Cory. Her funeral was held June 11 at Scotland Community Church. Interment was in the Menno Cemetery.
