NORMAN, Okla. - Mary Anne Price, a woman of God, a loving mother of six, a grandmother to 21, a competitor on the court, and friend to many died peacefully surrounded by family in her home in Norman, Okla. on Tuesday, July 17, 2007.
She was born June 27, 1927 in Chicago, and then grew up in Shawnee, Okla. A tennis player from the third grade, she was a three-time State Champion in high school. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education in 1949. She settled in Alice, Texas, with William W. Price, who is now deceased, and raised six daughters. Norman has been her home since 1972.
She has been an active member of Saint Michael's Episcopal Church over the years teaching Sunday School, being President of Daughters of the King, on the Welcome committee, the Food for friends group, Mary's Circle, and the Women's group. She completed the EFM series, and seven years of Bible Study Fellowship. She has been involved with the University Women's Association, PEO, Kappa Kappa Gamma House Board, and two book clubs. She taught Yoga for 40 years. Her favorite memories before grandkids were being at OU, living in the Kappa House, and playing tennis.
She loved being active in her two Bible studies, playing bridge with friends, and hosting a sew and sew group in her home. Her favorite activity has been watching her grandkids play sports and her granddaughter, Murphy, be a Pom at Norman North and OU. She was an amazing woman who delighted in her large family, her friends and her life.
