The family included three boys and three girls, and Page said her father molested all of the girls.
He was sent to prison, and for a time Betty lived in an orphanage.
Page, who was also known as Betty, attracted national attention with magazine photographs of her sensuous figure in bikinis and see-through lingerie that were quickly tacked up on walls in military barracks, garages and elsewhere, where they remained for years.
After years of obscurity, she experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s.
In 1959, she was lying on a sea wall in Key West when she saw a church with a white neon cross on top.
Bettie Page was a fashion model, also known as Queen of Pinups.
She moved to Florida in 1957 and married a much younger man, as an early marriage to her high school sweetheart had ended in divorce.
