Doloris Ann “Meme” (Sherrill) Savage, age 75, of Evansville, IN, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, February 25, 2019, surrounded by her family.
Doloris was born May 1, 1943, in Princeton, KY, to Richard “Ditney” and Mary L. “Bobbie” (Fraliex) Sherrill. She was employed with the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office for 22 years.
Doloris was a fighter and very strong willed. She survived breast cancer and lung cancer, but lost her battle with COPD, as well as a broken heart from losing her husband Bob last year.
Doloris was a wonderful wife, mom, meme and friend. She always kept the house immaculate; cleaning was a hobby that she thoroughly enjoyed. She loved her girls, grandkids and great-grandson to the moon and back. Doloris and Becky shared a very special relationship. Not only were they mother and daughter, they were best friends. Doloris and Robin also shared a special relationship. They loved traveling and spending time together. She enjoyed shopping and loved the slot machines. Doloris was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
