View Video Tribute

Samantha Pendley Delong Kirby, age 46 of McDonough, Georgia passed away June 11, 2012. She leaves behind her husband, Marion Blane Kirby; children, Cody Lyle Delong, Anthony Delong, Josh Delong, Leah Cash, Rebekah Kirby and Micah Kirby; two adored grandchildren, Noah Ray Cash and Anna Rose Cash; sister, Syndi Pendley and brother, Brad Pendley. She was preceded in death by her parents, Brad and Virginia Gallagher Pendley. Sam, as everyone knew her, loved life and it was apparent to anyone who was fortunate enough to cross her path. She also loved people. She had a warmth that radiated even the coldest heart. Most importantly, Sam loved her family and her Lord Jesus Christ. She was a woman who realized the blessings in the midst of the storm. She was a devoted wife, mom, friend and Mimi to her grandchildren. Sam was genuine in being herself and in that she made you feel comfortable to be yourself around her. She was a person who loved a good conversation and you always had such a conversation when you spoke to her. Sam was the most loving and supportive wife one could imagine. She modeled true love every day in how she cared for and loved her husband. Sam was the person who was always about town either finding a good deal or lending a helping hand. She found life in every day. Her untimely death leaves a void no words can fill. Her contagious smile, her distinctive giggle and her loving eyes will never be replaced. The loss we feel here is Heaven's gain. Funeral services will be conducted Friday, June 15, 2012 at 11:00 AM from the Henry Baptist Church. Rev. Archie Norman will officiate. Interment will follow at Haisten/Eastlawn Memorial Park. Friends may visit the family Thursday from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the funeral home.
