Marie Lucile (Page/Richardson) Neufner (1905-1969). Her first marriage in about 1921 was to Edward C. Richardson Sr. (born about 1902), which produced two children, Virginia and Edward Jr. In 1931 Marie married William Neufner (1898-1967); their daughter was Patsy.

Sophie Page died in March 1939, and her husband, Walter, soon followed, in December of that year on Christmas Eve.
