Darlene Savage (nee Blue)

January 15, 1936 – May 13, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Darlene Savage at the age of 84.

Darlene will be lovingly remembered and forever missed by her sisters Barb Blue, Patty Malek (Wayne), Diane MacLennan (Dwight), brother-in-law Bob Purdy, nephews Bruce, Paul, Jeffrey (Morgan), Jonathon, Jamieson (Jessica), nieces Bonnie Halford (Marc), Heather and great nieces and great nephews Rhea, Lexie, Blane, Kyra, Connor, Shelbea, Rylee, Owen, Cameron, Noah and Addison. She will also be missed by numerous friends and relatives in Canada, England and Australia. She was predeceased by her husband William Savage, her sister Roberta Purdy and her niece Laura Cypurda.

Over the years, Darlene was involved with the Springer Spaniel Club, the Wildwood Club and with St. Bartholomew’s Church where she made many friends and fond memories. She always had a smile for all with an unflagging positive attitude and a desire to help whenever asked.

The family would like to thank the nurses, doctors and staff at the Grace Hospital for the care and compassion given to Darlene during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Bartholomew's Church. Funeral services are pending at this time.

Darlene was always a breath of fresh air and vary supportive of me and my work. She had no problem and wanted to get the good news about her products out there for all to hear. She always was an inspiration when I saw her at Chamber of Commerce and Networking events My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.
Our loss is Heavens gain 🙏🙏

I met Darlene at a business event about 10 years ago and was immediately attracted to her positive attitude and warm personality. Over the years our friendship grew and many hours were spent visiting over delicious meals in various restaurants or over a quiet cup of tea in each others homes. She got to personally know my immediate and extended family ... remembered their names and always asked about them. I am disappointed never to have met her family but i got to know them through our chats. Our last dinner out was just before the Covid "lock down" was enforced and i am so thankful we were able to sneak in one final "girls night out". I told her that evening, as i have many times before, how much her friendship meant to me and how much I admired her for her independence and her quest for living. She loved her family and often shared stories about them, pride always present in her voice. The loss of her niece a few years ago and the more recent loss of her sister took a toll on her but she remembered them both with love. She always looked forward to family visits especially when it involved seeing family members who lived out of province or her sister in Phoenix. She always looked forward to face-timing with her family in Australia during the Xmas holidays. Those were very special.

I told her that i wanted to live a full life like she had as i grew older and teased her that she lived a richer, more active life, than I. Her participation in/ with several business groups, a widows dinner club, her church events, her golfing season, her bridge club, family events, outings with other friends, and most recently her virtual Zoom meetings required that i not take her availability to hang out with me for granted! She was intelligent and yet so humble. She was wise but not complicated and so easy to be with. She was adventurous and said "yes" to invitations as often as she could. She had a joie de vivre. I miss her so much already. Rest in peace my friend.
