Maysville Jane Page

May 22, 1940 ~ October 15, 2018 (age 78)

Maysville Jane Page (78) passed away on October 15, 2018 at Delray Medical Center in Florida.

Jane was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of the late Dr. Sidney Grey Page and the late Dr. Maysville Jane Page. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Gale Page Taylor and is survived by her sister, Diane Grey Page and by her three children: Brian Reames (Leigh) of Nashville, Tennessee, Robin Atwood (Harry) of Dayton, Virginia and Lindsey Claud (Chip) of Mechanicsville, Virginia. Additionally, she is survived by seven beloved grandchildren of whom she was extremely proud: William Reames, Oliver Atwood, Grey Reames, Ellen Atwood, Gregory Claud, Mary Winston Reames, and Sydney Claud as well as a nephew, Will Taylor, a niece, Erin Schroeder and a cousin, Maurice Owens, III.

Jane was fond of saying that she had not yet decided what she was going to be when she grew up. She was a beautiful and very talented performer and began that career with many lead roles in musical productions including some at Thomas Jefferson High School, Converse College and local productions in Richmond, Virginia. In 1961 she earned the title of Miss Richmond. She was also the singer for the Richmond based big band “The Continentals” for many years.

Jane always enjoyed doing needlework. Her smocking brought her blue ribbons at several state fairs. Most recently, she was part of a knitting group at Saint Gregory‘s church in Boca Raton Florida, where she knitted blankets for US troops, prayer shawls, and caps for newborn babies.

Jane was also an entrepreneur and small business owner. She owned and operated a mail order business, “Little Elegance,” which supplied materials for English smocking, including many smocking plates which Jane designed. She also opened and operated a shop in Richmond which sold children’s clothing, “Kiddie Korral.” Later in life, Jane had a career as a Real Estate Broker and also became a Certified Gemologist.

Jane will be remembered for her generous spirit, her smile that would light up the room, her sparkling sense of humor and personality as well as her love for “bling.” In her retirement, Jane has enjoyed living in Boca Raton, Florida where she is referred to lovingly by her friends as “ Madame Social Director.” Her last years of life included weekly mah-jongg games, weekly bingo (where she was famous for playing six cards at once), a weekly knitting group, watching the stock market, and visiting her beloved children and grandchildren.

A celebration of Jane’s life will be held in Boca Raton, Florida, at the clubhouse at San Remo on Sunday, October 21, 2018 from 3 to 5 PM. A burial service will be held in Richmond, Virginia on November 3rd, 2018 at 11:00 AM at Forest Lawn Cemetery.   In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
