age 39, of Brandon, FL, formerly of Sunrise, passed away Friday, February 24, 2017. She was born December 23, 1977 in Harvey, IL, the daughter of David and Kerri Routenberg. Ms. Routenberg had a master's degree Magna Cum Laude, class of 2010, from Nova University. Her career started in 2001 as a math teacher and she quickly grew her career through coaching math and working for Florida Department of Education for several years. Most recently, she worked as an Assistant Principal at Lake Gibson Middle School. Samara had a passion for education and helping children. She enjoyed watching children succeed, as was apparent in her open door policy for all. She went above and beyond for all students and encouraged a sense of self. This is the way she lived in her work life and her personal life.

Samara is survived by both of her parents; sister, Jennifer; brother-in-law, Nicholas; and two nephews. She spoiled her nephews with so much love. A memorial service was conducted March 5, 2017 at 2 pm at Temple Beth Shalom, 706 Bryan Road, Brandon, FL.
