Dorothy Louise Price
Dorothy Louise Price, faithful Christian, devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, gained her heavenly reward on March 10, 2020. Dorothy loved God and her family. She was proud to be married to Frank, whom she loved through sixty-nine years of marriage, until his death in 2017. Dorothy loved the four children they had together, and their chosen spouses: Wade Price & Sarah of Houston, TX, Wanda Price Childress & Richard of Austin, TX, Cecil Price & Nicky of Rowlett, TX, and Carey Price & Mary of Huntsville, TX. Her 13 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren were precious to her. Dorothy Price was born March 12, 1927 in Angelina County, TX. She grew up in the community of Huntington, TX. Dorothy graduated valedictorian of her class from Huntington High School in 1943. Dorothy married Frank E. Price on December 27, 1947. They eventually settled in Houston, TX and started their family. Dorothy made a career out of serving as a wonderful homemaker and gracious hostess to family, church friends and all who visited.
In 1992, Dorothy and Frank retired to Huntsville, TX, returning to the country life, exhibiting the same hospitality and care in the Huntsville church and area. Dorothy enjoyed many hobbies. She could often be found in her vegetable garden, tending to her flower beds, shelling peas, canning beans, picking berries and watching hummingbirds from her kitchen table. During her travels around East Texas, she would gather wildflowers, press them, and make framed arrangements. She was a wonderful seamstress and cook. Dorothy also volunteered her time in service to others by teaching many children in Sunday school and often taught the Ladies Bible classes. Her passion for serving led her to begin the Huntsville, TX chapter of Las Damas De Baxter in 2007, and she served as its first president. Dorothy enjoyed singing. She passed down the tradition of singing Sacred Harp music to her family. Frank and Dorothy also hosted gospel singings in their home. At family gatherings, Dorothy and Frank, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren would spend time singing together. Dorothy's life mirrored the Proverbs 31 woman. She leaves a legacy of serving God and her family, and showing hospitality to all. "Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate." Proverbs 31:31
In lieu of flowers, you may honor Dorothy with memorial gifts to The Baxter Institute (in care of the Huntsville Church of Christ) or the Foundation School of Church Music (contact Wade Price).
The family will receive friends from 5:00-7:00 PM on Friday, March 13, 2020 at Sam Houston Memorial Funeral Home in Huntsville, Texas. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday, March 14, 2020 at Huntsville Church of Christ in Huntsville, Texas. Interment will follow the service at Brooke Cemetery in Huntsville, Texas.

To Carey, Mary and all Ms. Dorothy's family, I am so blessed to have been one of her care givers and was able to get to know her. She and I prayed every meal together and she talked about her beloved, Frank. Then she would tell me about her kids, grands and greats. What a delightful lady! Thanks to Patsy for asking me to help and to you and Wade for agreeing I could come. She made a positive in influence in my life. Thanks again and God bless you all!
