Elizabeth Maxine (Sargent) Page

Oct. 11, 1923 - March 30, 2013

LINCOLN, Neb. — Elizabeth “Bette” Page lived until 3:42 p.m. on March 30 in Lincoln, Neb., where the Lord called her to rest at home as she was surrounded by her family. Bette dedicated her life to her family and offered a welcome smile and friendship to all those who had the pleasure of meeting her. Her life is an example of love and compassion to find the best in everyone and remind them of how special they are; she encouraged everyone to be kind, generous and loving. Bette was the daughter of Max and Elva Sargent. She began her life on Oct. 11, 1923, in Burns City. Upon her passing, she reunited with her mother and father as well as her husband, Lester “Buzz” Page, to whom she was a devoted wife. The heavenly reception included her brothers and sisters-in-law, Loren and Helen Sargent, Denver and Sally Sargent, Dean and Charyl Sargent, Mikie Sargent, Norman “Brother” Page, along with three nieces and one nephew. She will be so deeply missed and remembered by her surviving family including her son Steven, her daughter Jo Dee, who cared for her in her home during her last years, and her second son, Tony and his wife, Linda. She is survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Charlie Hamilton, along with her sister-in -law Maxine Page. Her surviving six nephews and six nieces, along with their families have also been the recipient of much love in her lifetime. Bette’s legacy will live on through her grandchildren and their significant others, Mark, Bridget and Erik, Amber and Thach, Jason, Chris, Scott and Nathan; as well as her nine great-grandchildren, Tyler, Brittany, Ashley Page, Makenzie, Luke, Page Elizabeth, Jayda Page, Delilah and Daphne. Bette graduated from Loogootee High School and then earned her degree in registered nursing from Methodist School of Nursing in Indianapolis. She served as a nurse at Daviess County Hospital and Martin County health nurse. Bette was a dedicated nurse and always remained concerned for the health and well-being of others throughout her career and after. She never stopped researching ways to improve the lives of those around her. Bette was an active member of the Loogootee Women’s Club and a devoted member of the Loogootee United Methodist Church since the 1950s. Her service to the Lord was paramount throughout her life and remains an example to those who knew her. Along with her husband, she remained very involved in youth sports and development. The Page Scholarship was created by the class of 1970, not only as a tribute to Bette and Les Page for their community service, but to also recognize individuals who have shown an early interest in serving their community. May our mother, “gram,” grandma, sister and friend continue to touch our lives as she is now touched by the hand of God in heaven. As we prepare our days in loving memory of Bette, her family offers an opportunity to help prepare a young adult in her family’s name with donations accepted towards the Page Scholarship. Make checks to: Martin County Community Foundation and mail to: P.O. Box 28, Loogootee, IN 47553. Make note on check memo for Lester and Bette Page Scholarship Fund. A service for Bette will be held on Sunday, April 28, at the Loogootee United Methodist Church. Visitation is from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Celebration of her Life and dinner will follow. We will miss you and love you “with a bushel and a peck,” “to the moon and back” and remain blessed by your life. Online condolences may be sent to jodee.haskins@yahoo.com
