Born March 27, 1934, in Pendleton, she was the daughter of Ralph and Maude Parker, both of whom preceded her in death. On Feb. 6, 1982, at a friend’s home in Greenfield, she married Everett V. Price, who preceded her in death in 2009.

She graduated from Pendleton High School in 1952. After high school, she went to work at Regency Electronics, where the first transistor radio was designed and manufactured. She spent 13 years there.
