Savannah Mae Holland



Savannah Mae Holland died Saturday afternoon, July 1, 2017. She had celebrated her 95th birthday on May 17. Better known as "Mamaw," Savannah was a strong, independent and loving woman. She was an avid gardener and the best cook in the world. She was known far and wide for her homemade chicken and dumplinsg, pinto beans and cornbread, peach cobblers and so much more. There was always a welcoming seat at her table for all. Savannah was loved by everyone who knew her. She was a beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and great-grandmother. She leaves us all with a lifetime full of happy memories.
