Rayonna Genevieve Mock-Savage, 88, of Alma, Kansas, formerly of Paxico, died Wednesday, January 1, 2020, at the Rolling Hills Assisted Living Center in Topeka.  She was a long time resident of Wabaunsee County.


Rayonna was born January 6, 1931, in Newkirk, Oklahoma, the daughter of John and Elizabeth Muckenthaler Noll.  She attended local schools and began high school in St. Marys, but graduated from Paxico High School in 1949.


Rayonna was a homemaker.  She also worked for many years as a cook at the Paxico Nickerson Farms.  She served as the curator for the Wabaunsee County Museum and also the bookkeeper for Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Paxico.  She was also involved with the Paxico Senior Center.  Rayonna was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and also attended Holy Family Catholic Church in Alma.  She was active in the church’s Altar Sodality. In later years she would attend two services every Sunday, one at Holy Family Catholic and then one at St. John Lutheran.  She was a member of the Wabaunsee County Historical Society and enjoyed quilting.  In her earlier years she loved to dance and go camping.  She also enjoyed music, especially family sing-alongs.


Rayonna married Elmer Mock on September 1, 1951.  He preceded her in death on November 17, 1993.  She then married John Savage on June 22, 2002.  He survives at their home.
