M. Faye “Satchie” Savage passed from her incredibly blessed life in Fallbrook, California on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at the age of 101 years 7 month and 24 days. She was born on Sunday, July 3, 1910 in Sherman, Texas to George Kellogg and Mary Elizabeth (Ross) Jay. Satchie married the love her life Jesse Terrell “Boog” Savage on Saturday, February 23, 1929.
Satchie literally saw the world change before her eyes. She saw all the wars since World War I, women granted the right to vote, Prohibition and the Roaring 20’s, invention of the sliced bread, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, man became mobile (invention of the car and plane), t-shirts were introduced, all major informational gadgets were developed (radio, television, and the computer), the slinky toy hit the shelves, the credit card, seat belts and more things too numerous to name. Satchie loved life and expressed that love in many ways. Her love of the earth fostered a life filled with the beauty of creating gardens. Satchie was a true gardener and spent a large portion of her life in the greenhouse and everyone she knew envied her green thumb. The homes she and her husband lived in were planted with plants, flowers and bushes each one the magazine Better Homes and Gardens would be proud to showcase. Her secret love was for cacti gardens. Satchie enjoyed many hobbies like quilting, sewing, cooking good ole southern food, enjoying her grandchildren and reciting the alphabet backwards faster than forwards (even at 101). She was a very gracious lady and never failed to let those she knew that she was grateful for the small blessings in life. Satchie was especially proud of her role as the family matriarch. She could recall all family members birthdays and wedding dates. Satchie’s family considered her the walking family historian. But what she was most proud of was her family. She considered it the greatest achievement of her long and blessed life.
Mrs. Savage is survived by her grandsons, Gregg Springer; Tom, Gary and Joe Savage; granddaughter, Kathy Patrick; great-grandchildren, Sarah Heiniger, Stephanie Springer, Brianne Anderson, Darwin and Nikki Frady, Troy and Madison Savage, Elizabeth and Sam Savage, Caleb, Eli and Gabe Savage and five precious great-great grandchildren, Kamron,Gabby and Daeton Frady and Jack and Calvin Heiniger.
