Samantha Rose Prince

Age 37, of Watkins Glen, NY and formerly Avalon, CA, lost her battle on the morning of August 17, 2020 after 4 long years with her courageous battle against a terrible disease-cancer. She was a mother, a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a niece, a loving companion, a friend, a cousin, and a FIGHTER!!

She is survived by her partner, Randy Savoie; children, Mason and Hannah; step-daughter Kaelyn Savoie; parents, Ricky and Ruth Prince of Montour Falls; sister April (Kyle) Bronson; grandfather Willard “Bill” Prostka; father-in-law Ronnie Savoie Sr.; sister-in-law Lauren Savoie; and brother-in-law Ronnie Savoie, Jr. (Wendy); uncle Jeffrey (Sharon) Prince; and numerous other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

She was predeceased by her brother, Zachary Prince; grandmothers, Doris Prince and Ruth Prostka; and uncles Harry and Stevie Prince, and sister-in-law, Karen Lafontaine.

Samantha graduated from Watkins Glen Central School in 2001 and worked for the Catalina Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau as a Special Events Coordinator and Manager. Samantha was a published Children’s Book Illustrator, loved playing games, watching movies and dancing with her children!

The family will receive friends at the Royce-Chedzoy Funeral Home, 212 E. 4th St., Watkins Glen on Saturday (Aug. 22) from 2pm-5pm; followed by a Memorial Service celebrating her life at 5:00pm. You may join the service live on Zoom or later view it streamed, by sending a request to the family at SamanthaPrinceMemorialService@gmail.com

We were not able to help her, but we are not powerless to help support her family and ensure her legacy. Samantha's wish was that her children, Mason (11) and Hannah (9) be taken care of: the surviving Prince-Savoie family will be forever grateful for your donation. You may donate in her memory at the “Samantha Prince Memorial” at GoFundMe.com. Your generosity will allow them to start a new chapter in which they will face the future with health, security and optimism.

You may leave a Remembrance or express a condolence to the family online at www.RoyceChedzoy.com

I still remember, to this day, how Sam said that I had the ability to, "see the bigger picture," whether it was in my landscapes or maybe my outlook on life even during high school... Ya know, to all who are reading this--I miss her--and death itself is evil, and yet we live our life...it just seems too soon and too fast and too short... even to say half a life time ago, I was with you in high school...and yeah, maybe I'd think we'd meet up again every 5 or 10 years...which still would be a few cyclical times that we would "by chance two separate glances meet" up again, even though it wouldn't necessarily be chance...maybe cost--but what I am trying to get as is: 37. And how much life you have had within 37 and sometimes, it makes me wonder how much life I have had; and still have; or maybe not have had...but still try to. Amen. . .I suppose this is why folks should or should not read the obituary every so often as they do/don't. . . . . . .
7th and 8th grade... senior year... 10 year ... I miss you, Sam. Aries forever! lol I was on the cusp...you are at the later end of it. Anyway. I really hope you are, wherever whenever you are, alright. Amen.

Samantha, I have so many good memories of you.

What I will remember most about you is your fire, your passion for your family and friends, and also for the innocent and vulnerable.

You truly cared about the world and seeing it become a better place. You were an advocate for justice and goodness and I always admired that about you. I am thankful to have met you and been influenced by you on Earth. I know we will meet again one day, in a perfect place, and I look forward to seeing you again. In the meantime, I will keep your memory alive by truly loving those around me, as well, and trying to make the world a better place while I am here. Thank you for being you and for all the love you have shown others. You will never be forgotten.

To April, Randy, Kaelyn, the kids, and Samantha's family and friends- I am so sorry for your great loss. The world, and your worlds, will never be the same and I wish you as much peace as possible during this time. Where there is deep grief, there was great love.

Silas and I will be joining the memorial on Saturday.

With love,
Berea Fair
