Marie De Page (1872 - 1915) - Belgium

I am indebted to Mary, a nurse from the Unites States of America, and to Stanley Kaye of the Facebook Group "https://www.facebook.com/groups/rememberingworldwarone/?fref=ts", for bringing Belgian nurse Marie De Page to my attention.

Marie was born in Belgium in 1872 and trained as a nurse.  Her story is amazing and she is definitely going to be one of the Inspirational Women to be featured in my next exhibition.

Marie died in the Lusitania disaster in 1915, after helping to save children from the sinking ship.
