The Willits News November 29, 2005

"Magdalena Mae Savage, known by all as Lana Savage, age 97, died at Ukiah Valley Medical Center on Thursday, November 17, 2005, following a short battle with pneumonia and heart failure.

Lana was born October 3, 1908, in Wichita, Kansas, to the late Ora Michael and Theresa Kathleen Switzer. She married Fred Clark Savage, in Grants Pass, Oregon, in 1927.

Lana and Fred spent nearly their entire adult lives in Oregon, with their early years spent near Grants Pass and Klamath Falls, before finally settling in Port Orford. Advancing age, coupled with health issues, precipitated their move to Willits in 1987, where they took up residence at 270 East San Francisco Avenue, near family and friends.

Lana was a devoted housewife during 63 years of marriage to Fred, Sr., until his death in 1990.

Lana is survived by her son, Fred Clark Jr. of Selma, Oregon; daughters Dorothy Sanders and Nancy Bowlds, both of Willits; 14 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and 12 great-great-grandchildren.

Lana is predeceased by sisters, Tressa and Ruth; brothers Raymond and Arthur; husband Fred Savage Sr., and sons James and Lloyd Savage Dunham.

At Lanas request, no services will be held. She will be interred at the Willits Cemetery next to her husband of 61 years.

Arrangements under the care and direction of Anker-Lucier Mortuary."
