King Sams 1932-2019

King Sams, the wife of our former TPMG Executive Director Bruce Sams, died on March 11, 2019. She and Bruce married in 1954 and they moved to San Francisco in 1961. She was a teacher dedicated to helping children, especially those with dyslexia. California was her chosen element, where she built a loving home for her husband and their three sons, Bruce III, Andrew, and Risley.

She is survived by Bruce, her loving husband of 64 years, their three sons, and four devoted grandchildren. Please direct gifts in her memory to the National Society of The Colonial Dames in California, 2645 Gough St. San Francisco, CA 94123. 

Her complete obituary appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle:
