On december 11, 2008, Mark Roesler, manager of Bettie, on its website announced that the former model died. She was at that time already three weeks in a hospital in Los Angeles with pneumonia. Just before she can go home if she got a heart attack. They ended up in a coma and never awoke again. A sad and lonely end for someone who once acted as well in the not-so-chaste fantasies of countless men.
Bettie Page was born on april 22 1923 in Nashville (Tennessee), and grew up as second oldest in a family of six children. She had not an easy childhood: at a very young age, she had to care for her brothers and sisters. When her parents divorced - Bettie was 10 years old - she came along with her two sisters a few years in an orphanage. Afterwards told Page that the girls all three sexually assaulted by their father.
