Mary Christine (Rollins) Sampson, 73, of Wabash, Indiana went home to be with the Lord at 4:03pm, at Parkview Regional Medical Center, with her husband and youngest daughter at her bedside, on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
She was born on February 27, 1947 in Glendale, Ohio to Charles and Mary Jane (Pfeiffer) Rollins.
She was a 1965 high school graduate of Mount Notre Dame Girls School in Cincinnati, Ohio.
She loved her Lord supremely. She loved reading her Bible, praying, and going to church. She served faithfully with her husband, Rev. James Sampson, in full-time ministry from 1985 to the present. They have served as missionary pastors to the Native Americans in South Dakota, as a Bible college professor, and in various other pastoral roles. At the present, she was an active member of the Wabash (IN) Bible Holiness Church, where her husband is the Pastor.
She also loved being a “Homemaker” with all of the domestic duties that come with that role. She loved all of her family members, especially her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild. She really enjoyed visiting with them, and talking and texting on the phone. She also was very fond of her little dog.
Many were really touched by her radiant smile, genuine laugh, and joyous spirit. She will be especially missed by her husband of 49 years, and all of her children.
Preceding her in death are her parents and brother-in-law Ed Moroney.
She is survived by: husband Rev. James Sampson; children Paul (Nancy) Sampson, Martha (Troy) Castle, Joanna Sampson, David Sampson, and Sarah Sampson; siblings Kathleen (Rollins) Moroney, Joan Rollins, William Rollins, and John (Rhonda) Rollins; grandchildren Breanne Funk, Seth, Ethan, Silas, and Elliott Castle; great-granddaughter Alayna Funk; and multiple nieces and nephews.
