Obituary for Georgia Gray Price

Georgia G. Price
February 22-1926-March 15-2019

Georgia Gray Grant Price, 93, died peacefully on Friday, March 15, 2019. “Gray” as everyone knew her, was born February 22, 1926 in Wayne County to the late George Grant and Mollie Price Grant. She was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Winston “Gabe” Price.

A proud homemaker and farmer’s wife, Gray’s life was centered around the care and well being of her family. Gray and her husband, Gabe, worked hard to build their life together, raising their three children in a home filled with love. Gray was a wonderful mother and never complained about the daily tasks that came along with having a family. She cooked full southern meals, cleaned her home, and picked up after the children and their friends. Her love for her kids was expressed in many ways each and every day.

As happy as Gray was to be a mother, she was more so to be a grandmother and great-grandmother. In her eyes, her “grands” could do no wrong. A doting grandmother, she was quick to tell you about anything going on with her grandchildren. She had a hard time saying “no” to her grandbabies and always made herself available to them, day or night, no matter the time. Gray’s family was, by far, her greatest accomplishment.

Gray was a woman of many talents and hobbies. Her time spent out in her vegetable garden brought her contentment and joy. The quiet time she spent with her hands in the soil allowed her mind to clear and thoughts to focus. She tended her garden for many years until her health no longer allowed. Her yard was kept in the same pristine condition as her garden. She enjoyed working outdoors and presenting a well put together home and yard. Her gifts in the kitchen were just as important, as she loved to cook and was quick to offer food to all who entered the home. No one could make better banana pudding or fried chicken. Her family will long recall the many meals shared around her table.

Devoted to her Christian walk, Gray firmly believed in the power of prayer. Her motto was, “If you’re going to pray, believe. If you’re not going to believe, don’t pray.” She was a prayer warrior for her church, her family, and community. Gray was one of the oldest living members of Daly’s Chapel Church, where she faithfully worshiped her Lord.

A service to celebrate “Gray’s” life will be held Monday, March 18, 2019 at 2 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Pineview Cemetery.

Georgia is survived by a daughter, Violet Pope; two grandchildren, Lynn Willoughby and Todd Smith; great-grandchildren, Jonathan Willoughby, Jodi Whaley, Emily Smith, Lea Smith, Alaina (Shane) Williams and Miranda Creek; great-grandchildren, Brayden Willoughby and Hayden Rose Williams; and a sister, Rose (John) Daly . In addition to her parents and husband, Gray was preceded in death by two children, Jeffrey Price and Cathy Gibbons; grandson, Greg Willoughby; four brothers, Hyman, Harold, Joseph and George; sisters, Ora Holmes and Ola May Grant; and an infant sister.

Family and friends will be received Monday from 1-2 p.m. at Rouse Funeral Home. Online condolences may be expressed at www.rousefh.com. Gray’s family would like to extend a special thank you to UNC Wayne Healthcare, Kitty Askins Hospice Center, and her caregivers, Mamie Covington and Mary Butler for their loving care and support. Arrangements are entrusted to Rouse Funeral Home, La Grange.
