Samantha Zimny Obituary

Samantha Marie Zimny passed away Thursday, November 16, 2023. She is survived by: loving husband Travis Mott, parents Stanley and Christine Zimny, siblings Stephanie and Scott Zimny and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends from across the world.

Sam packed an exorbitant amount of life into her years while with us. She worked at everything she did with a vigor unknown to the common person, taking on any challenge with unflinching resolve. After studying Mathematics and Linguistics at Indiana University, she moved to the Far East, mastered Japanese, traveled ad nauseam, covering Asia, Africa, Europe, and most recently the Pan American route via motorcycle with her husband. Sam’s love for her family was strongly pronounced in her daily video calls, game nights at home surrounded by loved ones, and the unceasing insistence on driving others to realize their highest potential. 

Sam’s favorite season was autumn. She loved to play the match-maker with her friends and share memorable moments forming close bonds with anyone willing to dig deep. She worked at the State Department in her college years, education afterward, and later at Apple and other tech companies. Her passion was health and wellness related. She was an entrepreneur mounting her own business as a certified massage therapist.

Sam would most proudly call herself a healer as she was most passionate about helping others. She found the most meaning in her profession by increasing the health of clients, friends and family. Being a massage therapist was her most proud title.

Sam’s charm and bubbly spirit seemed to draw the best out of everyone even before the first laying of hands.
