Perry Page Sr. (10-04-2012)
Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, September 22, 2012 at Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Farmerville. Arrangements were under the direction of Memorial Funeral Home.
God has not promised blue skies always, flower-strewn pathways, all our lives through; God hath not promised sunshine without rain, joy without sorrow and pain. Death visited us on September 14, 2012 and Brother Perry Page Sr. was called from earth to heavenís reward. Death to a Christian is moving out of this cold friendless dark world into eternal daylight. Brother Perry Page was the third child born to the late Willie and Louetta Barnes Page on April 9, 1920. He was preceded in death by his wife Marie Williams page and six brothers, J.C., L.C., Willie Goldman, Thelbert, Curtis and Lovell Page; and one sister, Willie Bell Lee.
He realized that God was the author and finisher of his faith, accepted Christ at an early age and united with the Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church. He was always ready and willing to do whatever his hands found to do to build up Godís cause. Perry was a professional truck driver for more than 50 years on the highways and byways in and about Union Parish. A marital union was formed in February 1941 to Marie Williams. He was a loyal champion to his family and he and Marie works together to build a loving home and family. To this union two children were born, Perry Jr. and Doris Louise. Perry was a source of encouragement to his children, as he and Marie led by example. They installed in them spiritual, moral, and cultural values, and taught them to put God first and all else would follow.
He leaves to cherish his memory: one son, Perry Page Jr. (Ellen) of Oakland, CA; one daughter, Doris Page Fields of Farmerville, La; five grandchildren, Kimberly Page Alford (Thaddeus) of Tracey, CA, Patrice Nichele Page of San Lorenzo, CA, and LaToya Trenance Page of Los Angeles, CA, Master Sgt. Edwin Cornell Fields (Sessanee) of Baltimore, MD, and Benjamin Corey Fields (Twyla) of Farmerville, LA; seven great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; three sisters, Donia Page Davis and Rosie Lee Page, both of Farmerville, LA, and Christine Smith of Monroe, La; two brothers, Dave Robert Page (Myrtle) of Farmerville, LA and Louis Page of Zwolle, LA; one god-daughter, Verda Mae Darby of Farmerville, LA; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friend.
