Leslie Ann Mears Savage, 59, resident of Parksley, VA, passed away Thursday, July 26, 2018 at her home.  Born September 7, 1958 in Nassawadox, VA, she was the beloved daughter of Herbert T. Mears, Jr. and wife Shirley of Greenbush, VA, and the late Phyllis Bull Mears.

Well known for her spit fire personality and compassionate heart, Leslie was always there to help anyone in need. She loved all animals and especially adored her dog, "Hunter" and cat, "Toot".  Leslie's grandchildren were her pride and joy, and there was never a day that went by that she didn't tell them how very much she loved them.

In addition to her father and stepmother, Leslie is survived by her son, Jared Savage and wife Lindsey of Hopeton; brothers, Herbert T. "Tom" Mears III of Falls Church, VA and Robert "Bobby" Mears of Greenbush; grandsons, Austin Michael Savage, Jace Reid Savage, Gunner Lane Savage, and Gage Rebel Savage; Aunts, June Evans of Daugherty, VA and Joan Bull Spurley of Horsey, VA; and numerous cousins.
