In December of 1921, Miss Ora Savage was the secretary of Dr. Robert C. Paterson, who was shot to death by a deranged patient, a veteran of World War I. Dr. Paterson was praised at his death as "one of the most prominent tuberculosis specialists in the country." Miss Savage appeared as a witness at the sanity hearing of his assailant.

Ora Savage was active with the Methodist Church between 1953 and 1963, serving as treasurer of the Live Wires, and in several positions in the Women's Society of Christian Service. 1 She was the daughter of Orin Savage, a carpenter who lived at 33 Olive Street.
