On August 5, 1943 Lucia(Lucille) A. Page was born to Josephine Torcivia and Dominic Zizzo in the West End of Boston.  She departed this world on January 23, 2018 as she lived, surrounded by the love of her family. Lucia and her elder sister Nina lived, played and explored Boston’s West End until redevelopment forced the family to move in 1948. Lucia and her sister remained close  for life.

 

The family settled in Rosendale where Lucia graduated from High school and went on to work at Newson & Co.  a public relations firm in downtown Boston. In her mid 20s, to the consternation of family and employer, Lucia embraced her commitment to social justice by joining VISTA, the domestic Peace Corps. She served impoverished communities in TX, OK, and AK where Lucia met and fell in love with her future husband, Gene Page.

 

 Moving to Northampton in the mid 70s,  she and Gene reared three children. She worked at Kaiser Permanente in the Admitting Department. She worked at Smith College in the Admissions Department as the clerical supervisor. In the community, her passion for social justice led her to support families immigrating from South East Asia, she often said that was the most important work of her life. Lucia was a founding member of the Northampton Survival Center. She had a great love of Irish folk music, needlepoint, and Jeopardy.

 

She is survived by husband of 48 years Gene Page, son Tony Page and his wife Lisa Roberge, daughters Rachel Page, and Molly DiNella-Page and her husband  Jason DiNella, three grandchildren, Nicky Page, Alex Ala, and Zach Roberge-Page, and sister Nina Schifone and her husband Tony. She joins her eldest grandson Stephen J. Page in eternal rest.

Dear Gene,
We are so very sorry to read of Lucy's passing; we know she's had health issues over the years, but didn't realize her problems had advanced to this point already. We are writing at this website as we are in San Diego near our son Hugh for the winter, and regret so much that we cannot be there to be able to express our sorrow to you and the kids in person. I am so grateful that I had that wonderful visit with her just last summer, when she and I talked outside CVS while sitting in your car; I wonder if you remember that chance meeting you and I had inside CVS? That chance encounter makes for such a warm memory for me.
Greg and I wish you peace, and our prayers are with you.
Love, Betsy and Greg
