July 18, 1932July 25, 2018

Janet Louise Page (nee O’Connor), O’Fallon, IL, born July 18, 1932 in Loogootee, IN, passed away in Shiloh, IL, on Wednesday, July 25th, a week after her 86th birthday. Janet was a graduate of Collinsville High School and the oldest of eight children born to the late Edmund O’Connor and Lina (nee Scraeper) O’Connor. Janet married George W. Page on June 2nd, 1954, and began her life as a military wife; together they raised three children: Karen (Gordon) Duckworth, Keith (Kelly) Page, and Kathy (Robert) LaPlante. Having a quiet personality, Janet was a perfect match for her more talkative husband. After George retired, the two enjoyed spending many winters at their second home in Zephyr Hills, Florida. After George’s death on May 25th, 2013, Janet found great pleasure watching Dancing with the Stars and reality programs such as The Bachelor, knowing each participant by name and always rooting for a favorite. Janet spent the last two years of her life residing at The Colonnade Senior Living facility in O’Fallon, Illinois and the family is thankful for the excellent care. In addition to her parents and husband, Janet was preceded in death by her sister, Anita Strauss and brother, Norman O’Connor. She is survived by her children and 8 grandchildren: KellyAnn Duckworth, Kristy Duckworth, Dustin Page, Brady Page, Aaron (Ataley) LaPlante, Audrey (Brandon) Null, Austin LaPlante, and Alex LaPlante; great grandchildren William and Sarah Moulds, as well as siblings Phyllis Jones, Linda Lane, Tom O’Connor, Mark O’Connor and Mike O’Connor. Janet’s last 7 days on Earth were good days filled with family, friends & birthday celebrations – topped off with the special treat of a root beer float the evening before her unexpected death. “Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first.” – Ernestine Ulmer Condolences may be offered online at: A private service will be held at a later date.
