1995 – 2021


It is with profound sadness that the family of Savanna Rae Magotiaux, 26, announce her sudden passing, on April 5, 2021.

Savanna was born March 18th, 1995, and quite literally took the life ahead of her by storm. No words could do her impassioned and wild presence justice. She attended school in Seven Persons and Eagle Butte and became involved in the 4H and rodeo community at an early age. She was also involved with the United Conservatory of Music, which sparked her fire for all things musical.

Savvy had an immeasurable passion for music, and could usually be found singing, dancing, or playing piano or guitar. If you were so lucky to bump into her at a local concert, you could find her front-row centre swaying back and forth or trying to start a mosh pit with a big smile on her face. She was known to carry a guitar around with her most of the time. Whether it was a plastic dime-store knockoff or a well-crafted acoustic, she played and treasured it like the last instrument on earth. This is how she treated people as well – it didn’t matter who you were or where you came from, she would take the time to know you, listen to you, and relate on a deep level. She will be fondly remembered as a sweetheart who wanted the best for others, even if it meant sacrificing her own interests. She loved to laugh, she loved to be weird, and she loved everyone.

Savanna is predeceased by her cousins, Travis Flannery and Kyle Magotiaux; and her grandfather, Octave Magotiaux. She is survived by her parents, Ray & Ronna; her siblings, Dayton and Desiree; and her grandparents, Irene Magotiaux and Patricia & Ron Gebhardt. She will be dearly missed by her numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, fellow musicians, favourite weirdos and other creatures.

At this time, there will be no service due to COVID regulations. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name at McMan Community Services Association or the HIV Community Link – Medicine Hat Branch. Condolences may be made at Arrangements made by
