Biography

Page was born on her parents’ homestead near Haven, Kansas, USA, on 12 June 1893. Her father was George Sheffield Bishop (1848–1949), who lived to the age of 100, and Sarah (née Casson) Bishop. As a young woman, Page taught at a one-room school about 80 miles west of Haven. After the United States entered World War I in 1917, she went to Washington, DC, where she worked as a stenographer in the War Risk and Insurance Department.

After the war, Page worked in the Treasury Department before returning to Kansas to work for the Internal Revenue Service. In 1926, she married Frederic William Page. The couple had at least one child, Donald (1932–1993).

Page lived by herself until she was 108, a year after she had surgery to replace a hip joint she broke after falling while cleaning windows. She died of pneumonia in Rosalia, Kansas, USA, on 22 February 2006 at the age of 112 years, 255 days.
