Paige Summers (Nancy Ann Coursey; July 21, 1976 in Lorain, Ohio, USA – September 22, 2003) was an American adult model. She was a former Penthouse Pet of the Month and Pet of the Year. She moved with her family to Morganton, North Carolina and graduated from Freedom High School where her senior superlative was "Barbie Look-Alike".
She invented the name Paige Summers for her adult modeling career. She appeared in several issues of High Society and Cheri magazines in 1995, and was first chosen Penthouse Pet of the Month for August 1996, but her fame came as Penthouse Pet of the Year for 1998 where she became the first North Carolinian to be so chosen. Kia Motors gave her a Sportage SUV as part of her award, in exchange for advertising. She claimed to earn half a million dollars a year. Summers appeared on The Howard Stern Show and several Penthouse videos.
Nancy Coursey traveled the world as part of her career, including to India and Australia, but kept in touch with her family, and by 2003 had moved back to live with them in Morganton. She was engaged to be married to local pharmacist and real estate owner Bracey Bobbitt on October 11, 2003. She was found dead in her home on the shore of Lake James, on the morning of September 22 of a drug overdose from a combination of the painkillers codeine and oxycodone.
