Savage, Sadie Mrs. – Obituary

At Cornucopia, Friday Nov. 30, of paralysis. Mrs. Sadie Savage, wife of L.A. Savage, of this city.

Over two years ago, Mrs. Savage had a partial stroke of paralysis and Mr. Savage brought her to the Depot hotel where it was hoped, by the influence of the medical water there, she might be benefitted. She was very low at that time and it was not expected by any that she could live, but she recovered to a degree so as to be able to take care of her two children, and when, last spring, she with her husband moved to Cornucopia, she improved much and seemed to be regaining her usual health.

Mr. Savage was working in the Oregon Gold Mining Company’s mill and when that closed down he came to Union, taking the work of running the engine at the Union flouring mill. In the mean time he left his family at Cornucopia, wher he believed the climate would be conducive to her health.

On Wed., November 28 she was again attacked with paralysis and this time so severely as not to be able to speak but a few times. Mr. Savage was immediately sent for but before he arrived at her bedside she was dead.

He brought the remains to Union, where on yesterday, at ten o’clock a.m., she was buried. The funeral services were held in the Methodist Church, Rev. G.M. Irwin officiating.

The brethren of the Masonic fraternity, in Union, took charge of the body, and in a brotherly manner manifested their sympathy with Brother Savage.
