Janet Savage Daniel, 83, of St. Simons Island, Georgia, entered into rest on Thursday, July 27, 2017, at Hospice of the Golden Isles.
Janet was the daughter of the late M.T. and Myra Savage, of McAlester, and was a 1951 graduate of McAlester High School. She attended the University of Oklahoma before furthering her education at Brunswick Junior College, where she obtained her accounting associate's degree.
She was a loving wife and partner to her husband, Charles, and a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
She retired nearly 15 years ago as accounting manager for Epworth-by-the-Sea and was the former treasurer for both the local PEO International chapter and the Christ Church Frederica Episcopal Church Women's group.
Janet was a member of Christ Church Frederica, ECW and Altar Guild.
She enjoyed being a democrat, rooting for the Chicago Cubs and seeing them finally win a world series in 2016, playing bridge and other games, cooking, and the challenge of moving and setting up the family home many times during her life.
In addition to her parents, Janet was preceded in death by her brothers, Martin Savage and Howard "Hal" Savage.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 63 years, Charles B. Daniel Jr., of St. Simons Island, Georgia; her daughter, Nancy Zink, of Little Rock, Arkansas; her two sons, William Daniel, of Austin, Texas, and Martin Daniel, of St. Simons Island; her sister in law, Nancy Puryear Savage, of Rogers, Arkansas; plus five grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
A service of celebration for her life will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, at Christ Church Frederica, on St. Simons Island, followed by a reception in the Parish Hall.
The family has requested that in lieu of customary remembrances, memorials may be made to Christ Church Frederica or PEO International.
Arrangements are entrusted with Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home.
