September 10, 1869 - February 15, 1954
|Mrs. Annie Jane B. Price was born at Stringer, (Jasper County) Mississippi on September 10, 1869. She departed this life in Prothro Clinic at Pleasant Hill, Louisiana on February 15, 1954. Funeral services were conducted in the Zion Rest Methodist Church, with the pastor, Reverend W. F. Hall, officiating, assisted by Dr. B. C. Taylor and Dr. J. J. Rasmussen.
Mrs. Price came to Louisiana with her parents in November 1889, and settled near the town of Pleasant Hill. She was married to Reverend J. C. Price on September 14, 1893. She was the mother of four children: Osto Price, (deceased); N. C. Price, Shreveport; Mrs. 3. 0. Tomlinson, Longview, Texas; and Mrs. M. E. Camp, Bossier City. There are also five grand children who survive her.
She united with the Methodist Church in youth, and lived a consistent Christian life to the end. Mrs. Price was an ideal minister’s wife, working always with her devoted husband in the interest of the church. A family altar was established in the home at marriage, and for more than sixty years this altar was the center of the home. It was here that the children learned to pray, and today they are all faithful members of the Methodist Church. Her parsonage homes were beautifully kept, and friends who were privileged to share her gracious hospitality knew that in her were to be found all the qualities of Christian womanhood.
Death cannot put an end to such a life as Mrs. Price lived. Her devotion to God, the church, her family and friends, and her many other good works live on in memory and Influence.
