Jeanette Page, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother was called home to be with the Lord on May 20, 2013 at home surrounded by family.
Born March 23, 1933 in Lynn, N.C., Jeanette was the daughter of the late William “Pappy” and Florence Cochran Dedman.
Jeanette was the widow of George W. Page who passed away in 2007. They were happily married for 55 years where they shared a loving home in Landrum, S.C. since 1958 and raised three children together.
She is predeceased by three brothers and one sister. Monte “Doc” Dedman, William “Bill” Dedman of Columbus, Sill Dedman and Nell Ravan of Lynn, N.C.
Throughout her life she maintained a sweet demeanor and kindness that won the trust and hearts of everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was always filled with happiness and wanted to give more than she received. Her generosity will always be remembered and her laughter and smile will never leave our memories.
She always remained positive and doctor’s referred to her as “Very Remarkable” during her fight with cancer. Her passion for life and dedicated faith blessed loved ones more time with her than expected and allowed her to see her great-grandson, Mitchell Carter Page, born in January.
She was a member of Morgan Chapel Baptist Church and during her younger years she was a Sunday school teacher for the children’s Beginners Class, a Bible School teacher and assisted with the church’s benefits for many years.
A dedicated mother and grandmother, she was crafty with her sewing and crocheting skills and enjoyed cooking. She loved making homemade jelly. She also enjoyed taking care of her flowers and plants and watching the birds in her flower garden.
