Kim Save, 20/1/1953-15/6/2023
ROSEBUD identity Kim Save was remembered on Sunday 25 June in a colourful send off at Rosebud Funeral Services and later at the Peninsula Beer Garden that celebrated her zest for life.
Mourners were asked to dress in colour, in a fitting celebration of a colourful life.
Kim Save was known for her unique sparkle, loud voice, and infectious spirit.
She was wife to Bill, loving mother to Kate, Jane, and Billy, and devoted grandmother to Chloe and Mia.
Her daughter Kate said Kim lived a vibrant and joyful life.
Many will know Kim from her pre-loved clothing store Silver Heirlooms in Rosebud, while others will remember the joy and spirit of fun she brought to Fashions on the Field at the Mornington races, which she won once and was a finalist in many times over 20 years. Her winning outfit was displayed in Silver Heirlooms’ front window with her award, and the story hit the local news when it was stolen soon after.
“Her memory will forever be cherished as she dances and enjoys champagne in heaven,” Kate said. “To all her loyal customers over the last 35 years, our family is very thankful for all of the support to keep this ‘heirloom’ in Rosebud open for so many years. Kim and Silver Heirlooms will be missed by everyone in the community.”
Kate said the family would be forever grateful to the passerby who doubled back after walking past Kim’s store at 5.30pm on Thursday 15 June and noticed something “odd” from the corner of her eye.
She went back to find Kim lying on the ground unconscious at the door of her shop and used the Good Samaritan app to raise the alarm. An off-duty fireman helped with CPR until the paramedics arrived, but Kim could not be revived.
Kate said the family was grateful for the support and love shown by the community.
