Barbara A Sampier

September 3rd, 1939 to April 17th, 2017

Barbara Ann Sampier, 77, of Algonac, died Monday, April 17, 2017.

She was born September 3, 1939 in Port Huron to the late Gordon F. and Beatrice M. Haydett. She was married to Robert “Bob” Sampier for 40 years before his death.

Barbara and her husband owned Boat Moving Engineers/Marine Trucking. She was a lifetime member of the Fred Quant VFW Post 3901 Auxiliary, enjoyed her prayer group, playing Bingo, penuchle, and the lottery, and going to casinos. Most important to her was family, especially her grandchildren, and her family doctor, Dr. John P. Mullally. She always treated “everyone” like her own. We will always remember her favorite quote, “I love you with all of my heart” and the fact that she called each of us and sang Happy Birthday.
