Mrs. Sage was born on August 26, 1923, in Swan Township in Noble County, a daughter of Charles and Veda (Beezley) Rhodes. She spent her formative years on the family farm there, and graduated from Avilla High School in 1941. On December 19, 1942, she was united in marriage in Fort Wayne to Russell H.

As a young woman she had worked at General Electric in Fort Wayne, and later worked as an inspector at Grid Craft in Huntertown, retiring from there in 1983. She attended the Huntertown United Methodist Church and enjoyed participating in its United Methodist Women. A multi-talented farm wife, she was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother.
