Mrs. Savoy was born in St. Martinville and was raised in Loreauville where she was a graduate of Loreauville High School. After settling in Sulphur in 1989 Nickie worked as a bookkeeper for several local businesses until her chronic condition would no longer allow her to.

She was very active in her community as a girl scout and cub scout troop leader and she also taught catechism at St. Theresa Catholic Church in Carlyss. She was a founding member of the family business, Savoy Technical Services.
She was a talented seamstress and an excellent cook. In her spare time she enjoyed reading, working in her flower beds, and traveling. She and her husband were season ticket holders for the Houston Astros. Mrs. Savoy will be remembered for her generous heart and the loving care she gave to all of her family and friends throughout her life.
