Elaine "Fluffy" Sauvageau

July 09, 1935 - February 14, 2015


Elaine “Fluffy” Sauvageau, 79, of Fargo, died Saturday, February 14, 2015 in her home. She was born on July 9, 1935 in Garneill, Montana to Carl and Sylvia (Lee) Miller and was the second of nine children.

Early in her life, she moved to Fargo and started her career in the service industry. She found her passion in life and thrived in that environment with her customers and regulars, many who became friends.

She married Floyd Sauvageau and had three wonderful children, Chuck, Dan and Rose. Later, she married Robert Johnson and had a beautiful daughter, Lisa. Her children and grandchildren were the center of her life and she always looked forward to spending time with them.

Fluffy took great pride in her home, proudly displaying her antiques and quilts, while meticulously maintaining her yard and flowers.

Survivors include her children, Chuck (Denise) Savageau, Dan (Laurie) Savageau, Rose (Lee) Krause, and Lisa Johnson; her grandchildren, Floyd (Samantha), Shawn, Nicole, Dillon, Katie, Zach, Abigayl, Taylor, and Brittney; her brothers, Sonny Miller, Thomas (Donna) Miller, Norman (Janice) Miller, Donald (LuAnn) McCollough, George (Judy) McCollough, Roger (Vicky) McCollough; and her sister, Karen (Russ) Brink.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husbands; and her brother, Marvin Miller.

Please join us to celebrate Fluffy’s life the way she would have wanted it, by wearing something bright and joyful.

The celebration of Fluffy’s life will continue at 4:00 P.M. at Ecce at 216 N Broadway, Fargo.
