Guyla Savage, Richfield, Utah

    Guyla Schow Savage, 82, passed away February 20, 2024 in Monroe. She was born March 31, 1941 in Panguitch to Guy and Elba Vernessa Schow. She was the youngest of six  children. She married William Reed “Bill” Savage March 7, 1959 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The marriage was solemnized March 21, 1964 in the Saint George LDS Temple. He preceded her in death on September 7, 2017. 

    Guyla was born on the tail end of the Great Depression and beginnings of World War II learning the values of being thrifty and hard work at a very young age. Due to work, Guyla and Bill moved many times while raising their family. Their last move was to Richfield, where Guyla earned a Cosmetology degree and worked as a hairdresser for many years. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in many positions including Scouts, Mutual and as ward Relief Society president. She especially enjoyed helping anyone in need, including her grown children and their families. 

    Guyla and Bill raised six children, one of whom they adopted. They fostered many children whether it was through the state foster services or friends of her children and neighbor children that needed help or a place to stay. 

    Guyla was a very talented artist that showed in her paintings, the special one-of-a-kind birthday cakes she created, all the beautiful dresses she made for her daughters when they had special events and the blessing dresses she made for her granddaughters. She loved going on rides with Bill up in the mountains or just down the road. She enjoyed making new friends and staying in touch with her old friends and sister. 

    She is survived by her children: Tami (Scott) Chew, Jensen; Ryan (Kim) Savage, Richfield; Renae (Honas) Busk, Richfield; Troy (Missy) Savage, Sigurd; Paul Savage, McCook,  Nebraska; 19 grandchildren, 37 great-grandchildren (with two more on the way), and a sister, Velva Christensen. 

    Guyla is preceded in death by her husband, Bill; parents; son and daughter-in-law, Reed and Sabrina Savage; and siblings, Connie Lou, Zelda, Millard, and Stanley Schow.
