Obituary

“Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; There is no shadow of turning with thee. Thou changest not; Thy compassions they fail not; As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.”


There’s an open gate at the end of the road, through which each must go alone; and there is a light we cannot see; Our Father claims His own; Beyond this gate our loving mother Audrey finds rest.

Audrey Harmon Savage was born on December 17, 1927, in Horsey, VA. She was the oldest of four siblings born to the late George and Leona Harmon. She departed this life on Wednesday, April 17, 2019. She resided in Atlantic, VA until her health failed and she went to live with her daughter Darlene in Glen Allen, VA, where her final days were spent. Audrey was preceded in death by her two brothers, George Edward Harmon and Adair Harmon.

At an early age she accepted Christ and joined St. John United Methodist Church in Atlantic, VA. She later joined Jerusalem Baptist Church Temperanceville, VA, where she became a faithful and dedicated member. Audrey served as a Trustee and Treasurer, she was also President of the Missionary Circle, where she orchestrated “Jubilee Day” as a major fundraiser for the church and was a member of the Senior Choir. She was very active with the Baptist General Convention.

Audrey was educated in the Accomack County Public School System. At an early age she had a keen eye for fashion and worked professionally as a seamstress, while assisting her family with work on the family farm. She was a salesperson for Electrolux Vacuum Company, where she earned multiple honors and merits for her diligent work. Additionally, she worked in the Poultry Industry for several years before retiring as a USDA Poultry Inspector. Upon retirement, Audrey achieved her lifelong dream of establishing and owning a tour agency called Jehovah’s Travel Tours with the assistance of her son, Harrison Savage. She was the first African American female owner of a tour agency on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Audrey purchased several motor coach buses that she chartered for travel.

Audrey was joined in Holy Matrimony to the late James Lloyd Savage. To this union seven children were born, Harrison Savage (Deborah) of Atlantic, VA, Evelena Carter of Virginia Beach, VA, Joyce Mason (Stanley) of Paterson, NJ, Diane Williams and Leona Parker (Arnold) of Chesapeake, VA, Darlene Savage of Glen Allen, VA and Audrey Perdue (Nathaniel) of Graham, NC. She also leaves twelve grandchildren, Garrett Dickerson of Wattsville, VA, Derrick Savage of Virginia Beach, VA, Harrison Savage Jr. of Georgia, Maurice Mason (Tiffany) of Paterson, NJ, Nastalgia Carter of Virginia Beach, VA, Juanita Parker of Chesapeake, VA, Cassandra Carter of Jacksonville, FL , Martin Williams of Virginia Beach, VA, Arnold Parker Jr, of Chesapeake, VA, Nathaniel J. Perdue, IV of Woodbridge, VA , Patrick Perdue of Graham , NC. and Amiyah Watson of Atlantic, VA. She leaves one brother, Leonard Harmon of Atlantic, VA and two sisters-in-laws, Dorothy Harmon of Trenton, NJ and Essie (Mae) Harmon of Onley, VA, along with a host of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.

We are who we are because of our mom, who gave us everything she could. Our memories of our mother will live on forever.

To the family of Ms. Audrey Savage, I just want to thank you all for allowing me the opportunity to care for your loving mother. She was a very warm and loving woman who loved to tell me about my weight. I'm gone miss her loving smile and the 4pm conversation we used to have. I pray you all find peace and comfort in knowing that you were blessed with an amazing mother.

We have many fond memories of Miss Audrey. However the memories that are the most vivid to us are those created during the impromptu visits with her on occasional Sunday afternoons. During those visits she always had sage wisdom to impart which was always mingled with love and humor.
Despite the passage of time and the inevitable changes that it brings, those spontaneous, quiet and peaceful Sunday afternoons in her living room are what we are now recalling and cherishing from our time with Miss Audrey. These and our other memories of your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend have helped soften the grief we are now experiencing since her passing. Likewise we pray that your memories of Miss Audrey will soften the grief you currently feel and bring you comfort and peace day by day.
Fondly,
Ricky and Debra Wharton--- April 27, 2019

To Darlene, my BFF and the entire Savage family,
It is so hard to find the words that might bring you comfort during this difficult time. I want to thank you so much for allowing me to know and love your mom. She was so delightful and I enjoyed the times I was around her. One of my fondest memories of your mom was a time when Darlene and I went shopping at the Williamsburg Outlets and your mom was with you us. We were having a good time shopping and we noticed your mom was not in the store. We went to the door and there she as sitting on a bench talking to this lady. We thought your mom knew the lady but she didn't. She was telling this lady all about her children and how proud she was of each child. This is just a small testament of your mom's love for each of you. Moms are special people, especially ones like yours.
May these words comfort you on the loss of your mom. I will always remember her sweet smile and beautiful nature. May Good keep each of you in his embrace at this difficult time.
Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs,
Carolyn and Marvin Porter

I am so blessed to be a part of such a loving family. As I reflect on Mom; her character was so strong. She was innovative. A forward thinker, ahead of her time. The legacy she left was one of Fully Relying On God, for her faith was well placed, and she had “kind” eyes. She will forever live in the hearts of me, my wife Audrey, and our sons Nathaniel IV and Patrick.
