October 12, 2001 – January 2, 2018
Savannah Marie, 16, of Copperas Cove, TX, became free to fly with the angels, January 2, 2018, after a long battle with Ewings Sarcoma. She was resting peacefully when she drifted off to be with the Lord after being surrounded, prayed for and loved by some family and friends in recent days. She breathed her first breath of life on October 12, 2001 in Ft. Carson, CO and came to be a joyous child.
Savannah was a very proud sophomore at Copperas Cove High School who had a passion for music, art, gymnastics, cheer, family and friends. Savvy, as many knew her, was known to always be smiling, thoughtful, and an amazing friend to anyone who was blessed to come across her path in life. Savannah was a beautiful person inside and out even though she was always hiding from the cameras. She inspired thousands around the world as she fought bravely and shared her story through her family and friends. Savannah will live on through so many; she has left a legacy for all who journeyed with her.
Savannah is survived by her biological parents Melinda Pedersen of AK and David Lewis of TX; step-mother Patricia Lewis of TX, her brothers Issac, Brad, Wade, Roger, and Eli as well as her sisters Maddie, Jessica and Olivia. She also leaves her grandparents Bob and Alma Martinez of Tucson, AZ, Hilda and Charlie Love of Schertz, TX and Jessie and Cynthia Orbe, of Brooklyn, MI, as well as several loving aunts, uncles, cousins and so many dear friends.
