According to a YouCaring page set up for the family, Savanna leaves behind her father, mother and several siblings.
"Savanna was a beautiful, funny, loving little girl. She had a very wonderful and tight-knit family," page organizer Linda Schadenfroh posted.

She loved everybody and everybody loved her."
