During her younger years, she had a decade-long romance with David Price before marrying him in 1938. Per Mrs. Price, this is due to that they cannot afford a wedding ceremony right away while David is still going to medical school at that time. Time passed by and they had four children, nine grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren. Mary Price passed away on 29 August 2022 at her lake cottage in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA at the age of 110. LongeviQuest congratulates Mrs. Price’s family on her posthumous recognition and offers our condolences for her death last year.
