Ann Ringle Price

Ann Ringle Price, 94, passed away on Aug. 28, 2013. Ann was born in Tiffin, Ohio, on Dec. 5, 1918. She was married to Thomas Bradford Price, Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force. After his honorable discharge in 1947, Ann and Brad moved to Prescott, Ariz., with their two daughters, JoAnn and Valerie. Once in Prescott, they had two more children, Penelope and Thomas Alexander.

Ann was very active in St. Luke's Episcopal Church, including teaching Sunday school every week. She loved working with the children and put on wonderful Christmas pageants each year. In 1968, Ann went back to college and earned her teaching certificate. She was a beloved teacher at Miller Valley Elementary School until 1984. After her husband died in 1984, Ann gave her time to the Prescott Art Docents, taking reproductions of masterpieces into the schools. She also played bridge, was active in the P.E.O. and traveled extensively with friends and family through Europe, Egypt, Mexico, Canada and the United States, where she enthusiastically studied art in all the museums.

Ann is survived by her four children, and 14 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Ann Ringle Price will be buried in the Arlington National Cemetery next to her cherished husband Thomas Bradford Price.

Ann was one of my P.E.O. sisters from Prescott's Chapter O. I graduated with Penny Price from Prescott High School in 1967. After returning to Prescott in 2003, I transferred to Chapter O here in Prescott. Ann was so welcoming to me. She had a wonderful and generous heart. I loved the twinkle in her eyes. When she moved to California a few years ago, she was sorely missed. When I look up in the sky at night, the twinkling stars will remind me of her. Have fun up there, Ann!

Your mom was a first-class lady and people knew whenever she was in charge, whatever the function it would be done very well! I remember her for many reasons, but she made brownies and girl scouts much fun! JoAnn, Valerie, Penny and Tommy my thoughts are with you in your loss. She was a special lady.

Joani, (Hooker) Clark

I first met Ann when I started teaching at Miller Valley School in 1975. She was one of the two first grade teachers at the time, and I had been hired as a third. She was so helpful and generous to me, showing me "the ropes". We taught together at Miller Valley until she retired--from teaching, but not from working with kids. I still saw her often as she helped out as an Art Docent. One of my favorite recipes came from Ann--a hot apricot drink that she made for one of our potlucks at school. I still make it to this day! What a memorable, dear woman! My sincere condolences to her family.

Mrs. Price was my 2nd grade teacher at Miller Valley School in 1979-1980. She was my absolute favorite teacher. To this day I have never met a kinder, more loving teacher.Im 41 now with two small boys of my own, and I still mention her often. What a beautiful person she was. I will always remember her.

I believe Mrs. Price was a teacher first at Lincoln School on Park Avenue in the late 1960's and early 1970's. I was one of her students (First Grade). She was a wonderful teacher whom I remember very fondly, and I convey my condolences to her family.

Mrs Price taught her last 4th grade class before retiring for a semester. I remember our our 4th grade class was so heart broken after we got attached and found out she was leaving. She was always a warm and kind hearted memory in my distant childhood. my thoughts and prayers go out to her children and family, thank you for sharing her with us.
