Darda Sue Page-Thier
January 19, 1938 – November 30, 2019
Darda Page-Thier passed away very peacefully in her sleep on November 30, 2019.
Beloved mother of Leslie Ellington; grandmother of Christie Ellington and Mike Ellington (Meredith); sister and sister-in-law of Cheryl Smith (Allen), the late Dick Page (late Marie) and the late Cindy Lou Page; friend of Diane O'Hara (late Mick).
Darda was an avid reader from the age of 3 on and throughout her entire life. She was always full of stories about her family and ancestors and growing-up in her hometown, Salem, Illinois.
Darda also loved the outdoors and gardening, and always had a beautiful yard. Her house was constantly full of fresh flowers and she shared them with everyone. Wild doves would fly down from the sky and eat from her hand, and she was also able to tame squirrels to do the same. Darda loved small children and the elderly very much.
Darda was lovingly cared for by the dedicated and loving staff at Delmar Gardens West, and was happy there. The family is grateful and will never forget the love, care, and understanding they provided.
The family will have a private memorial service.
Memorial contributions preferred to the Missouri Botanical Garden, 4344 Shaw Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63110.
