June 1, 1922 – April 22, 2013 Page,
Billie Rogene Page, 90, passed away on April 22, 2013 in Midland, Texas. She was born in Wolfe City, Texas on June 1, 1922 to Charlie and Lura Wooley. She attended school in Wolfe City and graduated from Wolfe City High School. She married Vaughn Page on December 10, 1941. She lived in Wolfe City until she moved to Midland in late 2006 to be near her son, Bobby.
Most importantly, Rogene was a believer in Jesus and a daily witness of her Lord through her kind spirit and caring heart. She was a wife, mother and homemaker. She was a caregiver to Vaughn when he was diagnosed with diabetes at age 30 until his death at 82. She took dietician classes at the hospital in Sherman and learned how to care for him. She weighed food portions and gave insulin shots. She observed bruises and scratches incurred while farming, resulting in application of medication to prevent infection. During the stay in the nursing home the last 5 years of his life, she would sit with him each day to insure his proper care. She would have an occasional meal with family or friends, but had to return to the nursing home to be with “daddy” for supper. She also worked over 30 years for a company in Wolfe City that published school pictures and year- books.
She is survived by her only child, Bobby Page and wife Celia of Midland, Texas, one grandson, Mark Page and wife Melissa of Southlake, Texas, one granddaughter, Hallye Knight and husband Kraig of Granbury, Texas and one step granddaughter, Dianne Childers and husband Shaun of Midland, Texas. She is also survived by four great granddaughters, one great grandson and seven step great grandsons.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, her husband and one grandson, Russell Page.
Arrangements are under the direction of Owens Funeral Home, Wolfe City, Texas. There will be a visitation on April 25, 2013 at 1:00 PM at the funeral home followed by a service at 2:00 PM and burial at Mount Carmel Cemetery in Wolfe City.
