Emma Lee Page

June 20, 1933 - February 17, 2024

Emma Lee Page went to be with the Lord on Saturday, February 17, 2024, as her son sang to her. She was a beloved mother and devoted grandmother and great grandmother.

She was born in the middle of the Great Depression to Nick and Louvenia Phelps on June 20, 1933, in Magnolia, Mississippi. Her family was poor but had a strong faith in God and love for each other. Her parents worked hard to provide for their family and their kids helped too. Emma picked cotton, tended cows for a neighbor and whatever else she could do to help her family. Those difficult years instilled a powerful work ethic in Emma which she carried throughout her life.  She was employed until she was 74 and remained active as long as her body allowed.

Emma was married to Joe Page for 58 years. They lived in Ponchatoula for most of that time. They raised 5 sons, Wayne, Mike, Terry, Danny and David. Emma was a great South Louisiana cook and homemaker. She was a strong member of Pinedale United Pentecostal Church.  When times were hard, Emma Lee made sure the needs of her children and grandchildren were met. Her grandchildren recall that every one of them received gifts from her at Christmas time but had no idea at the time how difficult this was for her. She was a strong selfless woman and would never admit that her desire to fulfill others’ needs and fixing their problems might leave her without 2 nickels to rub together.  Emma loved to sing gospel songs, and especially loved to sing with her son Danny. She was so happy when Danny or her grandson, Toby, brought their guitars to the nursing home where she had resided the last few years. She knew that meant she would get to sing her gospel songs.

Mrs. Page often taught gospel principles to her family. Her grandson recalled her words, “Today may be the last day we have to do good. Nothing is guaranteed. Eternity is forever. Be prepared now for where you’ll spend your forever.”  Emma Lee encountered insurmountable mountains along life’s journey, but with her unwavering faith she scaled them all. She was a woman of great courage who faced every problem with confidence and in complete reliance upon her ever-present Lord. She lived for Jesus Christ and faithfully served him, untarnished by the world. She often fasted and prayed for those in need. In her last days, as she endured severe pain and struggled to breathe, she would insist on praying with, and for, her grandchildren and others, even at the risk of running short of breath. The love and peace found in Emma’s heart when she passed from this life are priceless. “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:21

Mrs. Page is preceded in death by her parents, Enoch Isaiah “Nick” Phelps and Mary Louvenia Jenkins Phelps Lambert; her husband, Joe Wilson Page; her sons, Michael Eugene Page, David Charles Page and Terry Wilson Page; her daughter-in-law, Lydia Page and her sisters Margaret Phelps Owens and Joyce Phelps King.
