Price was born in Cardiff, Wales’ capital city, on 12 January 1886 as the eldest of four children. She married James Price in 1911, and sewed her own wedding dress for the occasion.

In 1939, the couple moved to southwestern England, and Price’s husband was employed in a mill in Upper Cam, Gloucestershire. Price was widowed in 1953.

Price moved in with her daughter Ivy at the age of 81; she lived in Dundry, Somerset. Up until the age of 110, she had never set foot in a hospital, only doing so after suffering a fall and a resulting hairline fracture of the pelvis. She enjoyed playing the piano and sipping the occasional glass of Stout.

Price died on 26 December 1997 at the age of 111 years, 348 days.
