Mildred “Annie” Anne Price died Thursday, May 23, 2024, in Colorado Springs, CO. She had her family with her and left this world in peace.

Anne was a kind and generous wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister. She was born September 13, 1933, in Trempealeau. Her roots were in the rolling bluffs of Wisconsin, working on a dairy farm with her family. It was here that her love of children, outdoors, animals and plants took root and blossomed in her soul.

Anne graduated in 1950 from Trempealeau High School, and attended Winona State Teachers College in Winona, MN. After graduating from college, she left home and taught elementary school in Battle Creek, MI, for three years. In 1958, she moved to San Diego, CA, where she met her love and future husband, William E. Price. Anne was teaching school and Bill was serving in the U.S. Marines.

Bill and Anne were married in California in 1958, and moved back to Bill’s home of Texas and settled in Houston. It was here that Anne gave birth to her first son, William Eugene Jr. (1960), Frederick Carroll (1962) and Randall Barganier (1965).

She continued to teach elementary school for several years. During her married life, Anne lived throughout the U.S. with Bill. Living in Houston, TX; Birmingham, MI; Rockville, MD; Dayton, OH; Bloomfield Hills, MI; Kansas City, KS; Gross Pointe, MI, eventually retiring with Bill in Salado, TX. She traveled the world and visited many continents and countries throughout her life.

Anne is survived by her brother, Charlie; and sisters: Lois and Louise; sons: Bill and Randall; grandchildren: Brennan, Tatum, Kyle, Bryan, Darcy, Audrey, Stephanie, Tiffany; and great-grandchildren: Camden, Freddie, Jaela and Brynlee. 

She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Bill Price; her son, Frederick Price; her parents, Carroll Curtis and Charlotte Anne Carhart; and sisters: Sharon Carhart and Marcia Sheffer.

Anne cherished her family and her friends. She was an exciting traveler, an intriguing woman, full of joy and hope. She had a streak of kindness toward others that we can all learn from. She was quick with a smile and twinkle in her eye throughout her life and until the end.

Anne will be dearly missed, and her spirit will live on in all of us that were lucky enough to get to share life with her.
