Savannah Grace McCrea was born on July 24, 2007, in New Ulm, MN. She attended Sunday school at United Church of Christ. She enjoyed cooking in the kitchen with her mother; she was a great egg cracker. She would want ice cream any time of everyday. Nothing made her happier than watching cartoons and snuggling with her family. She had an unmatched sense of humor for a three year old. She loved to play at parks, read books, and sing songs, dance, and dress up as a princess. She was a ray of sunshine with her bright blue eyes and her glowing smile that would light up a room. Savannah will be tremendously missed by everyone.
