Our loved Tin Can Tourists Artist and Hall of Fame member, Paige Bridges, passed away Saturday morning, October 20, 2018, in Wills Point.
Paige was born to Graham Leonard Estler and Willa Barbour Estler on May 12, 1943, in Huntington, West Virginia. She was raised in West Virginia and graduated from Fort Lauderdale High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She attended Marshall University in Huntington, WV. On June 25, 1978, she married David Lee Bridges in Wills Point. Paige was a well known artist and custom framer. Some of her artwork was sold in various locations in the United States. She taught art lessons for over fifty years. Paige enjoyed art, traveling, church ministry, baking, quilting and spending time with her family and friends. Paige was a faithful, founding member of Followers of Christ Church in Wills Point.
Paige made many friends by attending TCT rallies and impressed members with painting of their trailers. When members found out she was battling health issues, they solicited Hall of Fame membership and delivered it to her at her house. That’s just how special she was to the club and those that knew her.
