Acton, MA

Mary Jane “Jean” Page, age 85 and a longtime resident of Acton, died peacefully at home of cancer on July 1, 2020.

Jean, daughter of Ludolphe Joseph Labounty and Luce Rosianne (Vezina) Labounty, was born August 26, 1934 in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. She grew up mainly in Barton, Vermont and graduated from Barton Academy. After high school, Jean enlisted in the United States Air Force and served for three years as a teletype operator. The Air Force was also where she met her husband and soul-mate, Kenneth Page, and after being honorably discharged, continued her service to our country as a military spouse for another 13 years. During their time in the service, Jean and Kenny were stationed in Alaska, Hawaii, and several other states as well as Iceland. Upon Kenny’s retirement from the Air Force in 1968, they settled with their young family of three children in Acton, MA.

Jean was a homemaker during her children’s younger years and then began her career in the insurance industry, first at Sentry Insurance in Concord and then, after the death of her husband to cancer in 1987, at Gallant Insurance Agency in Acton. The Gallant Agency became her second home and long after she could have retired, she continued to enjoy her days with her beloved Gallant work-family, retiring after 25 years at age 85 with a stellar send-off party. Jean also loved gardening, attending live theater, especially musicals, and spending time with her family.

Jean is survived by her children, Kevin Page and wife Elizabeth of Braintree, MA, Keith Page of Acton, MA, and Karen Page and husband Peter Weitzman of Lebanon, NH, her grandchildren Kevin, Michael, Brian and Alison Page and Kenneth and Eli Weitzman and her sister Susan Rowell of Charleston, SC.

She was predeceased by her husband Kenneth Earl Page and sister, Arlene (Labounty) Woodbridge.

A private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, Acton, followed by a private burial at Woodlawn Cemetery, Concord Road, Acton Center. Funeral arrangements are under the thoughtful guidance of Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Avenue, Acton, MA 01720.

Jean was such a special person. She was a strong woman, having served in the Air Force. A rare accomplishment for women, at that time. She loved her country and served honorably, as well as supported her military husband for many years. She LOVED her three children, Kevin, Keith, and Karen. She would glow as she would whip out her ipad to show us the newest family and grandchildren pictures. Each child and grandchild had that special place in her heart. She made sure you knew that there was always room in her heart for you. She had this smile that welcomed you in. She loved her beloved doggie, Barneby, who helped her through the passing of her husband and stayed by her side. She had a contagious laugh and enjoyed life. She was one of the toughest fighters I have ever met, taking on cancer, many times in her life. She didn't have to work in her later years, but she loved her Gallant family and enjoyed her contribution to the agency. I was honored and blessed to share the last 3 years with Jean. We made fun Christmas traditions, went to magic shows, had girls night in the garden, went to comedy shows, and even went out the bar one night - sending her kids on a search around town. She didn't want her kids to worry but laughed that at 85 years old, she was still out drinking with her girlfriends. She enjoyed her friends and never wanted anything but your friendship. She was easy to love as she was a pure example of "old school" love and compassion. Something the world has lost, but Jean never did. She loved the beach and loved her garden. All beautiful things that mirrored off her face when her eyes sparkled and her smile took over. She was fun. She was pure. She was genuine. Jean was so many things but the one I hold closest to me, was she was my soul friend. As soon as her soul was nearby, my soul would spark, and giggle with excitement. Just to know she was there. Jean will be so deeply missed. I'm grateful for the heavenly reunion with her husband and little doggie. Until we meet again, my friend, we will keep in touch with your family and remember you always. Your forever friend - Marissa

Although my sister, Jean, and I lived many miles apart, we have always been close in our hearts. She has been a loving sister throughout my life. We have shared many laughs and good times together. Her family has always been her most treasured joy. She is now in God’s care and safely home. Goodbye sweet sister.
