Samantha Gean Hedrick

  Samantha Gean Hedrick passed away at her home in San Manuel on Jan. 1, 2019. She was born Aug. 30, 1965 at Tucson Medical Center to loving parents Jerry Hedrick Sr. and Nelda Gean Hedrick. Her parents brought her up to follow God in everything she did.

  Samantha attended Mountain Vista School in Oracle as well as San Manuel High School where she participated in athletics. She went on to earn an Associates Degree in Accounting in Arkansas City, Kansas, despite the fact that math was not her favorite subject.  Adding to her achievements, she also graduated from the Police Academy in the state of Kansas.

  Samantha married Vicente Lozano on May 29, 2015. 

  She held several jobs including being a teller at Wells Fargo in Tucson, a Police Officer in Arkansas City, an ATM Settlement Specialist for the Bank of Oklahoma in Tulsa, and the Assistant Branch Manager at Arvest Bank in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

  Samantha loved watching movies with her friends and family and could easily quote entire films. Her hobbies included sharing recipes with friends, doing puzzles, playing “Zonk” with her family and bragging about her grandchildren. She formed an instant connection with every animal she came in contact with from dogs and cats to horses.  

  Samantha was preceded in death by her mother, Nelda Gean Hedrick.  She is survived by her husband, Vicente Lozano and children, Tim Holcom Jr., Joshua Holcom and Jonathan Holcom (Celeste). She is also survived by her father, Jerry Hedrick Sr.; her sister, Farrah Hedrick Dever (Russell); brother, Jerry Hedrick Jr. (Radonna); and 11 grandchildren, who were her pride and joy. 

  She will, no doubt, be missed by uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews along with many friends that she made along the way but the memories she leaves behind will stay with us forever. 

  A celebration of life for Samantha Gean Hedrick was held Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, at the Living Word Chapel in Oracle.
