SAMSON (Lincoln), Sharon Ann Age 72, passed away Friday, May 1, 2020 at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. After receiving a shocking diagnosis of advanced-stage pancreatic cancer in February, Sharon did all she could to fight for her life. Her grace and strength, in sickness and in health, have been an inspiration to all who have known her. Sharon was born in Dayton, OH on November 3, 1947 to Della and Russell Lincoln. A lifelong member of Corpus Christi Parish and graduate of Colonel White High School, Sharon was a dedicated friend to many. Professionally, Sharon worked at Mead Co. and, after taking years off to focus on her family, became a librarian and educational aide at Corpus Christi School, where she touched the lives of many children and their families. Never one to relax, Sharon also worked at Handyman Ace Hardware where she befriended coworkers and customers alike. Sharon's radiant smile was always there to greet family and friends, filling them with warmth. Sharon is preceded in death by her beloved mother Della (Wourms) Lincoln, father Russell Lincoln and husband John Samson. She is survived by her children Jeannette (Dennis) Harbin, Rachel Samson (Steve) Bell, Christen Samson, Jordan (Julie) Samson; grandchildren Danica and Courtney Harbin, Madelyn Samson, Veronica and Ramsey Bell, Cooper and Ellie Samson; siblings Jim (Cheryl) Lincoln, Ron Lincoln, Carol (Mario) Mancini, Rick Lincoln, and Kathy Lincoln; nieces and nephews; and several stray animals who have fallen into her care. Sharon's life has been a lesson in selflessness, generosity, humility, and strength. She was the heart of her family and her love for all of us was so great, it seems impossible to navigate life without her. We all love her so much and will miss her forever. A celebration of Sharon's life will be held at Baker-Hazel & Snider Funeral Home when public gatherings are no longer restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Information will be posted when available. Please visit to share memories or condolences. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to advance Sharon's missions to help children and to promote education and research on topics that touch our lives. Please consider donations to the American Cancer Society or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Sharon's name.

My sons and I knew her as the friendly and kind librarian at Corpus Christi School, and later the friendly face at Ace Hardware who always wanted an update on the kids' accomplishments. So sorry to hear she is gone so soon. She made our corner of the world a better place. Our sincere condolences to the family.

I always looked forward to seeing Sharon at Handyman Hardware in the Northtown shopping area. Her smile for me and everyone as we entered the store did light up and make me feel so welcomed. She treated me and every customer with kindness. She was a beautiful person, physically and spiritually. I am so sorry for your loss and I will keep your family in my prayers as you grieve her passing. Jane Bensman

I was shocked to read about Sharon's passing in today's paper. She was one of the most beautiful people I knew, both inside and out. I met Sharon in 1978 when we worked together at Mead Paper. I had been off almost a year on maternity leave when I got a job offer from Mead Paper, not Mead Corp where I had worked prior to my leave. So needless to say, I didn't know anyone and really no one talked to me except Sharon. She became a friend, a wonderful person to share life with as young mothers. I retired from Mead Paper in 1986 but I would see Sharon from time to time at Ace or Meijer or chat on the phone. She was always the same, smiling, loving, so full of kindness and joy. She loved her family so much. I will forever remember her. My sympathy, love and blessings to her family. Jane Houser
