Theresa was born on January 21, 1930 at Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam, Connecticut, daughter of the late Leo and Mary Jane (Rickey) Phaneuf. She grew up on a farm in Ballouville, Connecticut. She was employed by William Prym Incorporated in Dayville, Connecticut for a period of 12 years, prior to pursuing her dream as a homemaker and raising her only child with her husband, Leo J. Page. She also volunteered at the voting polls for many years in Danielson, Connecticut. Theresa was young at heart and always seemed younger than her numeric age until her death. She was smart, creative and artistic, which was evidenced by her enthusiasm for gardening, decorating and painting. She enjoyed making puzzles and for many years immersed herself in word search and crossword puzzles. She would always seize an opportunity to shop and dine out and you could always count on Theresa as your dance partner in any venue. She was kind and compassionate and in her younger years found pleasure in entertaining with friends and hosting holiday celebrations. She has always enjoyed playing card games with others or engaging in a game of solitaire. With love and joy she has watched her grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow over the years. She had a good sense of humor, which she continued to exhibit during her final days, and was always eager for the next adventure. Theresa felt blessed for her 90 years of good health and is now in heaven with the Lord. Theresa will be truly missed by all those who were blessed with her presence over the years.
