We all loved Paige Harrell. Once a friend always a friend. Rest in peace my dear friend.

  12. I was so very sad at the news of your loss.
    Miss Paige was such a beautiful lady, she never met a stranger. I so enjoyed getting to know her at Berea Christian Church in Driver.

May you find peace in her passing.

  13. Rest In Peace dear friend. No more pain or suffering. May your family find comfort in knowing you are in Heaven with our Lord and Savior. We will miss you and still love you.❤️

A friend who loved life and always the life of the party. A beautiful voice and entertained much throughout high school. To Ronnie, Mary Cathrine, and her children my sincere condolences.

  15. Paige and my mother Annetta were dear friends.Paige taught my mom all about the jewelry business and had great times traveling to New York. Now they are in Heaven together.RIP Paige. You will always be remembered.

  16. My dear friend oh how I will miss you. We had so much fun together as we traveled the country attending fashion shows and enjoying life to the fullest. As we got older you were always there when I needed you. You loved my children as if they were your own, you held my hand as we took care of my mother in law in her final days. The laughs we shared as you cooked up a storm because we all know I can’t cook. As the years went on our time together wasn’t as often as we would have liked but I will never forget those times staying with you at Spring Arbor as we stayed up all night eating popcorn and watching movies. You would have thought that we were teenagers. The world will not be the same with you gone. I love you Paige and will see you again one day.

  17. Paige was one of a kind. She as my go to person whenever I needed something special with lots of WOW. One time I was looking for one such outfit she picked out an outfit and sent me to Julia Haywood for alterations. Julia’s response was take this back to Page and tell her “I am good this is one miracle that I can not preform”. Paige always had a vision no matter what size you needed. Shopping has not been the same on OBX. Condolences to Paige’s family!

  18. To all of Paige’s family, my sincere sympathies. She was a loving, giving and a beautiful person to all who knew her and will be so missed. What wonderful times we had together in the earlier years on the Outer Banks. God Bless.

  19. Paige, you will never be forgotten. You were a woman of class and grace. You had impeccable fashion taste, as all who knew you were aware. You were an avid church-goer and lived a Christian life. One could not have wished for a sweeter, more loving grandmother to Peyton. Although you will be missed, you are in a better place now, for sure. RIP

  20. So sorry to hear of Paige’s passing. She was a good woman Always enjoyed being around her, her fashion shows and giving us tips on how to wear our clothes. She was admired in so many ways May God Bless you and Mary Katherine and the rest of her family.

  21. My late Aunt Irene sure did love Paige and shared in her love of fashion. She bought a many an outfit for herself as well as my Nana from her.

Nancy Paige Harrell

October 20, 2021

Nancy Paige Harrell died peacefully at the age of 74 years young in Virginia Beach October 20, 2021.  She bravely and graciously battled the ravages of Parkinson’s disease for several years.  “Paige” as she was best known; loved color, style, fashion, design, hats, shoes, jewelry, lipstick, great parties, and making everyone feel beautiful and loved.

She started and successfully grew her own retail boutique Paige’s- where she was sought out by the most successful and notable women on the beach to make them look fabulous for events and everyday living. Paige was also active in Ocean View Baptist Church for many years organizing fundraisers such as teas, fashion shows, yard sales and Christmas Bazaars and she was a founding Red Hat member.

As her condition became more serious, Paige moved from Kill Devil Hills, NC to Chesapeake to reside with her son, Jonathan and his family. Also surviving is her son, Matthew of Kill Devil Hills, NC; her brother, Ronald Matthews (Mary Catherine) of Suffolk, VA; her nephew, Jason Matthews; her niece, Rhonda King; several grandchildren, and a group of loyal and devoted friends- especially Temple Heggie who never wavered in service to her friend, Paige.  Paige’s former husband and children’s father, Ed Harrell died recently in Florida.

Paige’s specific plans for cremation will be honored as will her clear directive for no memorial services. In lieu of flowers or donations sympathy cards and notes are welcome and should be posted directly to Jonathan’s address or care of Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. Please leave expressions of sympathy, memories, kind words, and encouragement to the family at www.gallopfuneralservices.com.
