Page Ashton Stanton, beloved daughter of Patricia B. Stanton and John E. Stanton, passed at the Egleston children's hospital in Atlanta on Thursday, December 11th, 1980, after an 18-month battle with leukemia. Page was just twelve years old.

In addition to her parents, Page is survived by her twin brother, William F. Stanton, and her younger sister, Catherine E. Stanton.

Although her life was short, Page made a great impact in the lives of those who knew her in her hometown of Decatur, Georgia. She played soccer for the "Disco Ducks" team at the local YMCA, and she was a cheerleader at Mount Carmel Christian Church.

Page was ambitious, even at an early age, proclaiming that she wanted to be the first woman president of the United States. She also liked to write, read and draw.

Page had a sharp wit and a mischievous streak at times. When someone was tailgating the family car too close one dark, winter evening, Page turned around, and in the glare of the headlights, wiggled her tongue and yanked off her wig as she continued to make faces. The tailgater backed off. Page was not to be trifled with.

But most importantly, Page had deep compassion for all living things. She loved animals and people without reservation. She was a protective older sister, and utterly amazing to know. She thrives in our hearts to this day, and will forevermore.
