Obituary of Karen Page

Karen Lee Page, 69, of Meridian, entered into the Lord’s presence on September 15, 2012, after a brief battle with cancer. Karen was born on November 23, 1942, in Stella, MO. She married John Page in Santa Ana, CA on June 30, 1961. They resided in Southern California, as well as Twin Falls in the early 1980’s, before moving to Meridian in 1997. Karen devoted her life to loving and serving her Lord and Savior as well as her family. She worked various secretarial jobs throughout the years, but considered her most important role to be wife to John for 49 years, mother of three, and granny to ten grandchildren and one great grandson. Karen was known for her hospitality, often hosting church meetings and large family gatherings in her home. Always found to be very caring, over the past few years she was able to fully utilize this special gift by tending to her ailing parents and husband, serving as a leader in the Care Ministry at Riverside Community Church, and volunteering at St. Luke’s Hospital in Meridian. Karen was preceded in death by her husband, John Page, and her parents, Lee and Dorothy Whitman. She is survived by her children, Keith Page of Costa Mesa, CA; Jodi and Robert Toffelmier of Meridian; and Jana and Jon Cochran of Orange, CA; grandchildren Avery and Alix Page; Torie, Lauren, Buzz, and Alisha Toffelmier; and Porter, Maggie, Mercy, and Scarlett Cochran; great grandson Aiden Toffelmier; sister Jeanie Markum; brother Bill Whitman; and numerous nieces and nephews. A celebration of Karen’s life will be held on Saturday, September 22, at 2:00pm, at Riverside Community Church, 200 East Carlton Avenue, Meridian. Services are under the direction of Accent Funeral Home, Meridian. 888-5833. The family deeply appreciates the staff at MSTI Meridian, and the many loving and supportive friends who walked with her through this difficult battle with cancer. Granny – You were not only a wonderful mom and granny to us, but a dear friend as well. We are so proud of you for the strength you showed through dad’s sickness and death, living on your own for the past three years, and then valiantly fighting your own illness. While there is now a huge void in each of our lives and there are no words to describe just how much we will miss you, we take great pleasure in knowing that you are rejoicing in heaven and we look forward to joining you there one day. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Tim. 4:7-8
