She was a devout Christian and a pillar of her church, Pine Grove United Pentecostal Church. In 2010, she was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of visiting the Holy Land and walking in the steps of her Lord, Jesus Christ. She had a particularly moving experience in the Garden of Gethsemane.

She was preceded in death by her husband, J.W. Price; son, James Wendell Price Sr.; sisters, Lizzie Mae Craft, Daisy Ray Dunaway and Erma Ree Robbins; brothers, Earl Thomas, Joseph Alton and Jewel Clifton Thornhill.
