❤ Step-Grandmother ❤

Grandma Ella was first married to Jack Richard Cole, having five children by him. Three died in infancy and are buried in unmarked graves at the Gibson Bayou Cemetery in Earle, Arkansas. She and Jack divorced. She later married my grandfather, Robert Roy Savage. They had no children.
She worked long, hard hours in cotton fields most of her life, first in the fields of her family and then as a tenant farmer's wife. During her marriage to Granddaddy, she was a seamstress.
Grandma Ella was a kind and generous soul. She helped others even in her own time of need. She deeply loved her two eldest step-grandchildren (my cousin Paul and myself) as though we were her own.
She never remarried after Granddaddy's sudden death. She remained a widow until her own death, thirty-four years later. She's deeply missed. ❤

Many thanks to Brenda Huntley for the transferal of Grandma Ella's memorial. Thank you!
