In 1935, Lawson won her first of seven North and South Women's Amateurs at the Pinehurst Resort, a record that still stands. In 1936 she married Julius A. Page Jr. and made their home in Chapel Hill. At that year's U.S. Women's Amateur, Page won the medal for the lowest round during the qualifying matches and won the medal again in 1937 and went on to defeat Patty Berg in the finals to win the most important amateur championship in the U.S. In 1938, at Westmoreland Country Club, the two met again in the finals, this time the victory went to Berg.

Page was part of the U.S. team that won the 1938 Curtis Cup and ten years later she was part of another Curtis Cup winning team. She won three straight North Carolina Women's Amateur Match Play Championships (1950–52), nine Women's Carolinas Amateur between 1932 and 1949. and retired with 22 tournament victories to her credit. Following the creation of the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame in 1963, she was part of the first group to be inducted.

Page died in 1983 and was interred in the Old Chapel Hill Cemetery in Chapel Hill.
