Samantha Leah Bartolo

October 28, 1983 — November 10, 2023

Samantha was born in Denver, Colorado in 1983 to Sam Bartolo and Sue Carner, the third of four children. When Samantha was a year old, the family moved to Grand Junction where Samantha attended school. She lived in several Colorado cities before returning to Fruita, Colorado. 
From the time Samantha was born, she was sunshine and love. Born to bring light and joy to all who knew her. Her heart was giving, kind, protective, and loyal. When she was little she would spend hours playing with plastic flowers and willow branches. Honoring nature, and the importance of family were two of her deepest core values. When her little brother was born, she attached herself to him, never let go and cared for him as if he were her own. She loved her sisters so much. Samantha and her siblings were truly best friends, from sharing bath time as children to camping trips with their own children. 
Samantha loved music and sang with all her heart (a bit off-key at times) at school plays, in church, and at home. She conducted her first symphony in middle school because of her leadership talents and love for music. She played the flute in concerts and led the group with pride and determination. 
In 2003 Samantha married Luke Knopp. They had two amazing sons, Brodyn and Bronson. Even after their marriage, Luke and Samantha kept an incredibly close friendship and family unit. Samantha loved to go hiking and camping around Colorado with her family and spent a lot of time in the mountains. 
Samantha wasn’t afraid of challenges and had an open mind. She took different paths that others wouldn’t, making her strong and independent. Her laugh was hearty and full, her sense of humor contagious. Samantha cared deeply about her family and friends and spread love to those she brought into her circle and deeply valued the relationships she had with her nieces and nephews. She made every holiday, birthday, and weekend dinner a special and memorable event. Samantha loved her boys more than anything, creating in them a good and kind heart. She lives in them, full of grace, mercy, and love. She was full of sunshine and will forever be in our hearts as a loving mother, cherished daughter, precious sister, wonderful aunt, and best friend to many.
