News at Eleven: When [F.R.] Scott refused to obtain a divorce

("I never got over being rejected," [P.K.] Page commented afterward), she married [Arthur] Irwin, then commissioner of the National Film Board, and began her new career as the articulate and enterprising wife of the high commissioner to Australia, then ambassador to Brazil, then to Mexico. She returned to Canada only to reside in Victoria, where Irwin had accepted the position of publisher of the Victoria Daily Times and the Daily Colonist.

In all her roles as poet and fiction writer, avid painter and consummate hostess, Page was a devoted wife and companion.
