Maryanne J. Savage, 61, teacher and volunteer

Maryanne J. Savage, a former Baltimore County teacher and a volunteer who worked with at-risk youth, died Friday of complications from multiple sclerosis at her Chapel Hill, N.C., home. The longtime resident of Randallstown was 61.

Born Maryanne Freedman in New York state and raised in Randallstown, Mrs. Savage taught Spanish from 1974 to 1992 at Woodlawn and Catonsville high schools. She also volunteered in many community organizations to help children who had learning difficulties, alcoholic parents or other problems.

She moved to Chapel Hill four years ago, where she continued her volunteer work. Mrs. Savage used her Spanish skills to help non-English-speaking immigrants adjust to American society. She also established a library for El Centro Latino, a nonprofit organization in Carrboro, N.C., that provides educational services for Latinos.

Her marriage ended in divorce.

Mrs. Savage was an active member of the Ethical Culture Society.

A memorial gathering will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday in Columbia. Those interested in attending can call Barbara Barnow at 410-997-3624.

She is survived by two daughters, Jackie Foreman of Sykesville and Suzanne Savage of Seattle; two brothers, Darryl Freedman of Chapel Hill and Richard Freedman of Columbia; and two grandchildren.
