Obituary for Edna Creech Price

Edna C. Price
September 20, 1924 - June 20, 2017
Seven Springs-Edna Creech Ma Price, 92, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center. Edna was born September 20, 1924 in Wayne County to the late Benjamin Creech and Lula Winders Creech. She was wife of the late, John Charles Price Jr.; and was preceded in death by a son, J.B. Price; and a daughter-in-law, Velma Price. Life for Edna revolved around her faith and her family. Known as Ma to everyone, Edna endeared herself to all with her sweet smile and warm hugs. Fiercely independent and strong willed, Edna relished her role as matriarch of the family. Her happiest moments were when all the family was gathered together. Edna believed in hard work and often talked about never needing a nap during the day. Most days were spent working in the yard or tending to the garden. In the fall Ma could often be found in the yard raking and burning leaves. Edna was a gifted seamstress and her family has many fond memories of her cooking. Nothing was better to her family than sitting around her table enjoying a home cooked meal. Her chocolate cakes were famous in the area and at the urging of family she entered one in last years fair and won a second place ribbon. Edna often used her gift of cooking to minister to others. Edna was a longtime member of Seven Springs Baptist Church.
A service to celebrate and honor Ednas life will be held Friday, June 23, 2017 at 7 p.m. from Rouse Funeral Home with Pastor Rick Rigney officiating. Burial will be Saturday at 11 a.m. from the Grady Family Cemetery.
Edna is survived by three children, Brenda Moore and husband, Shelton, Donald Price and wife, Linda, and Glenn Price and wife, Cathy; six grandchildren, Suzanne Harrell and husband, Richard, Gary Price and wife, Christen, Teresa Creel and husband, Danny, Melissa Brock and husband, Daniel, Ashley Price and John Price; along with nine great-grandchildren.
