Samantha Ann Miller, age 50, passed away in the Milford Regional Medical Center on Wednesday, October 28, 2020. Sam was Born in Norwood, Massachusetts on December 15, 1969. She was raised in Walpole, Massachusetts, where she attended Blessed Sacrament School. She then went on to attend Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro, graduating with the Class of 1987. Following her graduation, Sam continued her education taking classes at Stonehill College before earning her associates degree from Dean Junior College in 1989.
From a young age, Sam knew she wanted to work with young children and while still in high school, she took her first childcare position with the Stoney Brook Daycare Center in Walpole. Following her college graduation, Sam settled in Wrentham, where she welcomed her two sons, Michael and Taylor. She continued to develop her career at Stoney Brook, which allowed her to work diligently while still caring for her own children. In 2000, Sam was introduced to the idea of the Adirondack Club in Franklin, which was in its infancy. She quickly came on board and implemented many of her own ideas and philosophies over the past 20 years. She was officially the Children's Service Director, and she held a vital role in the daycare, pre-school, after school care, and the various camps sponsored by the Adirondack Club. Most recently she was recognized for her 20-year anniversary with the company. Over those years, Sam, worked diligently to create a one-of-a-kind environment for both the employees and children.
Despite her love and desires for her workplace and the children she cared for, her own family always came first. She was a dedicated Mom to her two sons, supporting them in both football and hockey through the years. She and her boys settled in Plainville, Massachusetts in 2013, building a family home full of love and support. Her family did not end with her sons; she had a love for all animals, especially the family dogs. In her free time, Sam could be found on the beach with her friends or in the kitchen cooking home cooked meals for family and friends.
Sam is the loving mother of Michael Miller and his fiance, Gina Anselone, and Taylor Miller all of Plainville.
She is the soon to be grandmother of a baby girl, who is due to be born on December 9, 2020.
She is the devoted daughter of Dianne (Rouhow) Cronin of Marion and James Capachin of RI; devoted sister of Christina Cronin, and doting aunt of Lola Minahan and Ruby Samantha Minahan.
Sam is the cherished granddaughter of Carolyn Capachin of Walpole.
