Louise Page Kastner, wife of Donald E. Kastner, of Dorset, VT died peacefully at age 94 in Lake Oswego, OR on April 20, 2018. She was the daughter of Blinn Stevens Page and Carlotta Splane Page, born in Detroit, MI, the sister of the late William and Anne Page. She attended Grosse Pointe schools and the Notre Dame des Oiseaux in Paris, Vassar College, and graduated from Wells College. She worked in the Foreign Service of the U.S. State Department until her marriage in 1946 that lasted 61 years. She remarried in 2010 to Jack Pelton, who died in 2014.

For thirty years, the Kastners lived in Chatham, Cape Cod, where they owned the Christopher Ryder House, a national award-winning restaurant and night club.

After retiring, they moved to Manchester, then Dorset, VT where she was a member of Zion Episcopal Church, Green Mountain Girls, a life member of the James Smithson Society, and Daughters of the American Revolution. Her charity work included the American Society of the Blind, the Cape Cod Hospital, and the altar guild of four churches.
