Donalda “Nollie” Amelia Page, age 82, formerly of Barnet, VT, passed away peacefully at the St. Johnsbury Health & Rehab Center, Tuesday evening October 3, 2017.

Nollie was born on March 27, 1935, in St. Johnsbury, VT, daughter to the late Charles and Dorothy (Sicard) Mayhew.  She was raised and educated in St. Johnsbury graduating from the Academy with the Class of 1953.  Nollie married Melville W. Pierce and after 28 years parted ways.  She remarried and shared over 21 years with Ralph C. Page until his passing in 2005.  Nollie was a homemaker for many years and worked as a clerk at Northern Auto and St. Jay Hardware.  After marrying Ralph she worked with him refinishing floors, raising horses and refurbishing horse carriages and sleighs.  

She enjoyed music, gardening, her family and friends.  She loved to laugh, sing and play games.  She was very athletic, enjoying bowling, golf, volleyball and softball.  She was one of several mothers for the kids of the North Danville village for many years.  She was also active in the North Danville Community Club.  She was member of the North Danville Baptist church, leading the choirs with her good friend Shirley.  Later she was an active member of the Peacham Congregational Church, singing in the choir and serving as treasurer and secretary.  She was on the board of directors for the Danville Meal Site.  And thanks to family friend Heather Willard, Nollie continued to partake in meals there right up until her passing.
