Obituary for Mary "JoAnn" Price
Mary Joan (“Joann” or “Jo”) Price was born in Orlando, Florida on January 16, 1939. She left us to join her sons, and the love of her life on Tuesday, November 7, 2017. Jo is predeceased by her four sons, her husband, and her parents. Her survivors are her daughter Desiree, son-in-law, Chester, and her three grandchildren, Emily (26), Kelsey (25), and Christopher (22), her sisters Judy (Dick) Whitted, Jeannie Phillips, Deedee (Jeff) Johnson, her brother David (Tina) Weaver.
Jo, “the strongest woman I ever knew,” spent every waking moment caring for Ted, her sons with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, or "following" the activities of her grandchildren. She was a perfect mother and a very loving, devoted wife. Jo enjoyed being the life of every party. She was looking forward to celebrating 60 years with the love of her life in April of 2018. The family invites you to join us for a Celebration of Life on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 11:00am at the Price home. You are welcome to bring a dish, a flower, and/or a story to share.
