Mildred “Millie” Helen Savage, 97

Mildred “Millie” Helen Savage, 97, of Kellogg, Idaho, passed away May 5, 2022 at the Shoshone Medical Center of Kellogg.  She was born November 23, 1924 in Kellogg, Idaho; Millie was the daughter of Michael and Mary (Malkovich) Manolovich.

Millie has lived in the Silver Valley all of her life.  She attended and graduated from the Kellogg High School in 1943.  Millie furthered her education, attended and graduated from the Sacred Heart School of Nursing of Spokane, Washington.

Millie was united in marriage to her beloved Henry “Pape” Savage on March 16, 1947 in Kellogg.  Pape passed away on September 18, 2004.

Millie was a registered and a surgical nurse and had served at the Wardner Hospital and the Shoshone Medical Center of Kellogg.  She had served in nursing for 42 years, before her retirement in 1988.

Mille was a member of the Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox Church of Butte, Montana.

Millie loved and enjoyed gardening and working around her home, reading and people- she loved taking care of them.

Mille had spearheaded the renovation of Greenwood Cemetery of Kellogg in memory of her husband, Pape.  She gave the unkept cemetery a generous makeover- this beautification project was the largest privately funded public works project in Kellogg’s history.  Millie, Dan and Sandy Pavelich (also Kellogg natives) worked so very hard and dedicated themselves to Millie’s vision for the cemetery.  Mille has done the community such a great service and was so generous of this wonderful project.

Mille is survived by her family of Butte, Montana; a dear friend Sandy Pavelich of Spokane, Washington;  a nephew Mike Crnkovich of California and three great-nieces.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Pape, one sister Helen “Chickie” Crnkovich and her special friend Dan Pavelich.

Graveside Inurnment Services will be held on Friday, July 29, 2022, at 11:00 A.M. at the Greenwood Cemetery of Kellogg with Father Russell Radoicich officiating.

The family suggests that memorials may be made to a local community charity or project of the Donor’s choice.
