Helen Savage

On Thursday, April 10, 2014, our precious mother, Helen Marie Savage, peacefully passed away surrounded by family. She now joins the love of her life, her husband, our father, Thomas.

Helen was the daughter of the late Lewis and Julia Visocki Belcher. She resided in Plymouth, attending Plymouth schools until marrying her soulmate, Tom. After marriage, Helen and Tom moved to Mountain Lake, where they raised two daughters.

They lived an exceptional life filled with love, travel and adventures. They always showed generosity, kindness, and respect toward neighbors and all living creatures. Their acts of kindness and good deeds will live on in the hearts of many.
