Page Webb Saunders


Mrs. Page Webb Saunders, 89, formerly of Durham, N.C., died peacefully on Monday evening, June 2, 2014, surrounded by her immediate family.

Mrs. Saunders was born on January 25, 1925, to Raymond and Gertrude Webb. Mrs. Saunders married her Durham High School sweetheart, J.C. Saunders, Jr., and they were happily married until his death in 1991. Mrs. Saunders and her husband were both active members of the Durham community during their lifetime, as they were involved in civic, church, and school activities. Upon "retirement" to Myrtle Beach, S.C., Mrs. Saunders became Station Manager for the American Red Cross, an organization near to her heart. In addition to her civic involvement, Mrs. Saunders was a master bridge player, and played for years with cherished friends. As her health declined, Mrs. Saunders moved to Raleigh to be close to her family.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Saunders was predeceased by her son, Randall Page Saunders, and her three siblings.

She is survived by her daughter, Sandra S. Coats (husband Carl), two cherished granddaughters, Amy C. Butts (husband Dave), and Katherine C. Tole (husband Paul), and two adorable great-grandchildren, Sarah Katherine Butts and William Joseph Tole, all of Raleigh. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews, cousins, and sisters-in law.

A private graveside service will be held at Maplewood Cemetery with the Rev. Hope Vickers of Epworth United Methodist Church in Durham officiating. Memorials may be made to Epworth UMC. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to Mrs. Sandra S. Coats, 14112 Kennington Park Drive, #203, Raleigh, N.C., 27614, or
