Violet Clarke Savedge

June 19, 1920 — June 23, 2021

Violet Mattie Clarke Savedge, 101, transitioned from this life on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at Consulate Health Care of Windsor. A Celebration of Life for Violet C. Savedge who was born June 19, 1920, to the late Richard & Allie Jane Clarke. She was the second of ten children raised in Isle of Wight County. On June 20, 2021 the Lord blessed the family to celebrate her 101st birthday at the Consulate Health Care of Windsor, not knowing it would be the last time we would meet, greet and sing to her. On June 23, 2021, the Lord called her home. You have fought a good fight. Violet was a member of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church, but after marriage she attended Mount Moriah AME Church with her late husband Randolph B. Savedge and her children. Violet was a good housekeeper, cook and took care of many children which was precious in God’s sight and hers. Violet was preceded in death by two brothers George & Pernell Clarke, four sisters, Mary Lyttle, Uteria Hardy, Edith Wilson, and Annie Maude Holloway, two daughters Jacqueline Cofer and Diane Savedge, one son Ronald Savedge, son-in-law Wilbert Liggins and one grand-daughter Sherry Savedge.

Mom, you’ve taught us that a little bit of kindness goes a long way and a lot of kindness can change lives. That some of our best lessons can be learned from our mistakes, that the sooner we forgive the happier we’ll be. That the right choice isn’t always the easiest, but is worth the effort. That you can never run out of ways to let people know you love them, and that a good family is a great gift from God. Thank you for teaching us the most important things in life by the way you lived yours. A Graveside Service will be held 12pm Tuesday, June 29, 2021 at Mt. Moriah AME Church Cemetery Surry, Va. Viewing will take place from 4-6pm on Monday, June 28, 2021 at Shivers Funeral Chapel. Please Keep the Savedge family in your thoughts and prayers.
