Age 88, Belington, W.Va.
In Loving Memory of Virginia Paige Peters, who passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2022, surrounded by family at her home in Belington, W.Va., at age 88.
Born in Sperryville, Va. on April 9, 1934, Paige was the last surviving of 12 children born to Arthur Dalton and Julia Marie Moyer. As a girl she enjoyed dancing, singing and playing basketball.
After moving to the Washington, D.C. area with her husband William H. Peters, she raised a family, worked in the private and public sectors, and was the first in her family to achieve a college degree. A keen supporter of the arts, in later years she was director of the Jerome Art Center in Jerome, Arizona and the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia.
A master gardener, Paige spent her retirement designing and planting gardens, volunteering, and traveling to “far away places with strange sounding names.” Her kindness and gentle spirit touched all those whom she met.
She is survived by her three children Pamela, Patricia and William; as well as her grandson Keith, who would like to offer their heartfelt thanks to Ted, Curt and Antje, who opened their hearts and homes to Paige in her final years.
No services are planned, but the family invites all those who knew Paige and whose lives she touched to donate to the charity of their choice in her name.
