SAVAGE, Kari Alexandra

December 3, 1970 – January 26, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Kari Alexandra Savage at 11:06 p.m. on Thursday, January 26th, 2012. Kari will be celebrated and remembered for a myriad of things including her extraordinary artistic talent and her loving compassionate demeanor, most notably with children. Kari’s last moments were spent surrounded by friends and family overflowing with love and memories. Kari was predeceased by her son Conner whom she has waited patiently to meet again. Kari has left behind her loving Daughter Riley; Spouse Larry; Mom and Dad; Brothers Billy and Ryan; Sister Sara; and all of her extended family. All of us will miss her tremendously. We will be forever grateful for the love and support of friends and family who unselfishly gave so much in this time of loss. We are also deeply thankful for the exceptional, compassionate care Kari received from the staff at Foothills Hospital Intensive Care Pod ‘C’. Thank you all. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made directly to Cindy Savage or Kari’s Daughter Riley Davis, to be deposited into a fund created for Riley in memory of her loving mother.

In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    To Kari’s family,

    I am so saddened by the tragic news of Kari’s passing. I have many fond memories of our times together in Silver Springs … our mutual love of being “art geeks” …. trips to Calaway Park … and general teenage mayhem.

    She was a sweet soul who emanated kindness and peace.

    May your memories bring you comfort at this sad sad time.

    It has been 20+ years since I “worked” with Bill and Cindy at the Paskapoo Ski Club. Kari was a great kid to have around the team and always worked hard at her skiing. All these years later, memories of those ski days flood back.

    My sincerest condolences to Bill, Cindy and all of your family.

    Larry, Riley, Cindy, Bill, and the entire Savage family,

    I wanted to pass on my deepest sympathies on the sudden passing of Kari. I knew Kari through elementary and junior high. I remember some very fond moments playing at each others houses as we lived across the street and I remember the birthday parties as well as fun in the backyard pool. She always had a caring heart and always had smile on her face. Our thoughts and our prayers go out to you.

    Cindy and family,

    I was shocked and terribly saddened when I heard about Kari’s sudden passing. I remember all the school days when you and Patty Louis and I walked our kids to the bus in front of Mary’s house for kindergarten and also seeing Kari as part of my daughter’s life over the years. My heart goes out to you all. Kari was far too young to go and I am sure you are just devastated by your loss! Thinking of you, Ev

    You guys were a second family to me. I loved and cherished deeply everymoment I spent with Kari. I greated her as mom, and visited her often. It saddens me greatly to hear about her passing. I wish she rest in peace with her son, Conner and I wish the best to the family. Kari is a woman I will never forget.
