You need to open the Page editor for those pages and uncheck "Allow Comments" under the Discussion section.

At the top of your screen, you'll see a small box that says "Screen Options". Click that, and a menu will dropdown. Select to show the "Discussion" area.

Would you prefer to just hide the comment section using CSS for now (until a solution is found for why the comments are still showing up)?

Okay, please add this CSS to your CSS rules box in the theme options:

#maincontent body.page div.commentform {display: none;}

open the page you want to edit. at the very top of the screen you will see a grey tab that says "Screen Options." Click that, then make sure "Discussion" is checked. The discussion option box has a check box for "Allow comments."

When you create a page or post, you have the option then to allow comments and pings for that post/page. This is WordPress core functionality.
