It is with heavy hearts that the family of Nancy Page announces her sudden and unexpected passing at the age of 57. Nancy was the cherished daughter of Margaret (née Reinhart) and the late Clarence Page. She will be remembered by her siblings Susan (Glen) Campbell and Robert Page and be missed by her nieces and nephews, Brian (Alyssa), Brent (Zena), Dylan (Mackenzie), and Julie (Ben). The funeral and reception will be held at Trinity United Church in Cobourg, ON, on Thursday, March 16, 2023, at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please consider making a donation to a charity of your choice.
May I extend my deepest sympathy to the Page Family. It is especially difficult to see someone as young as Nancy pass. She was such a lovely young woman. I know that you will miss her always.
My deepest condolences to the entire family in this sad moment. My thoughts are with you.
Nancy, you were a flower and your beauty will be forever remembered. Thank you!
I wish to pass on my deep and heartfelt condolences to the Page family. I am sorry I was unable to attend the funeral but I hope that the joy we know as Nancy was shared in your stories and memories. Mrs. Page, Nancy was proud of the fact that by the time she was 18 you two had become best friends. She spoke of how the only thing better than going home to visit your mom was when it meant you were also visiting your best friend. She missed Clarey but would light up when she spoke of his joy of canoeing and shared love of that yellow VW bug. Nancy spoke with adoration and wonder at how big sister Susan had somehow transitioned into a loving and caring mother without her little sister seeing. Nancy was proud of how you now were possessed of tireless energy and patience for children and life. There was little in this world that could eclipse Nancy’s love of music. That was understood along with the awe at which she looked up to brother Rob. She was talented when it came but spoke with proud envy of your talent and ability to be a conduit of your music. That could explain why when she danced she often started by playing air base on her hip. You knew she truly looked up to you when she would speak of you and Led Zeppelin in the same breath. She said that you could make all other instruments play backup to you on base and with acoustic you could paint with emotions and memories. She missed Clarey. She would go quiet for a moment at mention of her father but then light up when speaking of him and canoeing or their shared love of that yellow VW bug. I hope memories and tales of Nancy were spoken of and shared so that her light and joy once again warmed others as did her presence.
Like everyone who knew Nancy, I have cherished memories of her, from driving around Cobourg in her yellow Volkswagen Beetle in high school to the hug that nearly knocked her over when we reconnected at Roy Thompson Hall decades later. I was impressed when Nancy told me about her travels because she'd found a way to live that was utterly true to her. Now I feel grateful she didn't wait to live her life as most of us do, if it had to be cut so cruelly short. Nancy was unique - adept at everything yet relaxed about it all, welcoming and kind, and that wonderful smile! Her laugh could change your whole day. My deepest sympathy to Nancy's family for this tragic loss. And many thanks to Nancy, for her friendship.

Nancy was so lovely and warm- I worked with her at Roy Thomson Hall and always looked forward to seeing her. She lifted other people up, and supported everyone's artistic endeavours. She was a great listener and I remember her always smiling. I loved hearing about her trips and adventures. What a kind soul; she will be missed. Much love to her friends and family. Melissa Morris
Marg, we are so sorry to hear about Nancy’s passing……we’re thinking of you today.
Nancy was loved by many people, and her smile brightened the day for family, friends and complete strangers alike. This speaks of Nancy's character and the impact of her presence. Sending love and light to Nancy's family and friends. May you rest in peace, Nancy.
I worked with Nancy ten or so years ago at Roy Thomson Hall and got to spend time with her socially after our shifts at the hall. I enjoyed her free-flowing spirit and I admired the way she lived, that work stress was not worth it and I believe she pursued things that felt fun. I see her amazing world traveling now on another level as she explores the Universe in a different way, cheering on her loved ones and yet, still expanding. Her tinkling laugh, her cheeky smile and countenance, her ease and sense of play and how she enjoyed life, her graciousness. I will always remember that. Sending blessings to her family and friends 💗 Alison Hill

My memories of Nancy go back to our childhood days in Cobourg, when my parents and I were living on Major Street, next door to Marg and Clarey, Susan, Rob and Nancy. That friendship has now spanned upwards of six decades, and since Nancy settled in Toronto, we often ran into each other at Roy Thomson Hall, where I attend concerts quite regularly. It was always a joy to chat with Nancy and reminisce about our families and the "earlier days" growing up in Cobourg. Our dinner get-togethers, while infrequent, were always fun; it was a "connection" to bygone days that really meant a lot to me. I was shattered to learn that she had left us so suddenly - FAR too young! - and her absence leaves a void in all our lives that cannot be filled. Rest in peace, Nancy, and know that your memory will always shine bright in our hearts... My sincere condolences to Marg, Susan, Rob and your extended families.

To all the Pages, my most heartfelt condolences. Nancy was such a lovely person with a wonderful laugh, I am so sorry she passed so young. I only feel happiness when I think of her and the fun we had skiing, at sleepovers, Camp Tawingo, Bon Echo park, doing sign language in 7th grade because we couldn't pass notes, and so many more. I feel quite blessed to have had her in my life. Thanks Nancy, you will shine on in my life.
Nancy was like a sister to us. We will miss her Witt, her laugh and her laid back way of living life. You left us too soon Girl. We will love and remember you always. Andy Hoag & Katherine O'Connor Hoag
My heartfelt condolences to your family . Nancy was a special and kind soul. She will be dearly missed in our personal and work lives. I'm fortunate to have known her. Love and prayers ,
A heartfelt sigh and deep lament for a unique character that has passed through the lives gathering here, early or late... To me her spirit will always linger, her countenance lit by that perpetual wry smile and corn silk hair, from the flickering campfires of Bon Echo to the still resonating hallways of Gummow and the East, and of course the Kelly's communal backyard. Nancy always appeared as though she knew something amusing or obvious about yourself you yourself hadn't yet discovered. Sincere condolences to her family, and a glass raised high to her amiable heart, and all the weeping friends this day.
Our deepest condolences from the deGraauw family. I have very many fond memories of working with Nancy and being part of her group of friends going back to high school. She had such independent spirit, and a stop at nothing attitude towards life! Nancy is someone I both looked up to, and respected for many of her honourable attributes. Her spirit will live on on all of us touched by her presence. Cheers Nancy. You are missed, but will be remembered by the many people fortunate enough to have had you in their lives.
My deepest condolences to everyone that knew and loved Nancy. I went to high school with Nancy and played in the band with her all through high school. I will always remember her wonderful smile and infectious laugh.
My heart goes out to everyone whose lives were touched by Nancy. Oh the memories. From pretending to be Harriet the Spy, Skiing, to sitting by the piano at Christmas listening to Rob play. May Nancy be free and shine her light on all that had the privilege of knowing, loving her. ❤️
So, so sad to hear of Nancy’s passing. My most sincere condolences to the entire Page family. No words from anyone will outweigh the grief felt at this time but please know that Nancy will be missed by all who knew her. Sincerely, Andrew Cook
Your sweet smile and tender laugh will be missed by many. Rest well my dear friend ❤️ My condolences to Margaret and family.
