Judith Ann Samuel

Judith Samuel learned the importance of giving back from her mother, who spent many hours volunteering while raising four children. 

After retiring from Royal Oak High School where she worked as a special education teacher, Judith began volunteering at Lighthouse with a friend. She developed a strong connection to her fellow volunteers and an appreciation for the work Lighthouse was doing.

When Judith passed away in 2022, her entire estate was donated to the charities that she cared about the most – including Lighthouse. Her foresight and generosity through planned giving will allow her legacy to live on through Lighthouse’s mission and provide life-changing support and hope to local families and individuals in need. 

Naming Lighthouse as a beneficiary, as a percentage or a specific amount from your estate, is not only impactful but also easy. If you wish to explore planned giving possibilities to support our organization, please contact Michelle Olmsted at or 248-920-6000 x2208.
