She was born February 18, 1937, in North Bloomfield, OH, the oldest child of Paul and Anne Hrubik. She was a graduate of North Bloomfield High School, and soon after, she married Daniel Savage, her beloved and devoted spouse.
They moved to Warren and raised their family of 3 children, Carol, Thomas, and David.
She worked at a variety of places over her 85 years, from Packard Elec, Cesta's Golden Gate, the Executive Inn, a restaurant critic for the local paper, Giant Eagle groceries, K-Mart, and Community Skilled Nursing Home, plus. She attended the local branch of KSU and was looking to always learn more in the areas of writing and theater. When her children were young, she was an avid volunteer at the neighborhood school and worked in the library, and she was heavily involved with Little League Baseball as a coach in the community.
Barb was an exceptional cook, baker, and gardener, always sharing with family, friends and coworkers who would always ask for her breads and cinnamon rolls. She was also a second mom to many of her children’s' friends, so her home was full of activity, love, and joy.
