Beloved mother and grandmother Edna Whetstone Price, 97, passed away at her home in Portland, Thursday, November 29. Born in East Liverpool, Ohio, she came to live with her Aunt Edna and Uncle Emory Carleton of Syracuse after the death of her parents.
She spent most of her life caring for her family, and tirelessly gave her time to those around her. An avid needleworker and superb cook, she instilled her love of song, dance and reading to those around her. After retirement, she and husband Gayle traveled extensively throughout the United States making many friends as they went. She was an accomplished genealogist of the Price, McKinnon, and Whetstone families and was a long time member of the LGAR.
Graduating from Ohio University, she taught school for thirty-five years, most of which was at Racine Elementary. She immensely enjoyed her third graders and spoke often of them.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Gayle, and is survived by son James (Joann), and daughter Suzanne (Ron) Cammarata; grandchildren Laura, Sherrie, Brenda, and Sara; three great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grand children. A niece, Bev Price Brougher, nephews, Sam Price and Larry Price, and several cousins also survive her.
She believed that we all reach a place in this wonderful land when the time comes for the Lord to call us home to perform more tasks for Him. Now, she is gone to that place and is joined by her loved ones that she often spoke of, Gayle and her parents, but is missed greatly here by those who loved her.
Services will be handled by Anderson-McDaniel Funeral Home in Pomeroy and will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Meigs County Humane Society, P. O. Box 682, Pomeroy, Ohio 45769.
