Ms. Gertrude Price, 65, departed this life on Monday, June 27, 2011.
Gertrude was born on April 22, 1946, in Mattson, Mississippi.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Louis Price and her sisters, Lucille and Dorothy Brown.
Gertrude moved to Kansas City with her husband, Louis Price in 1963. She made a career of her passion for cooking and spent much of her time in retirement serving in the church.
As a member of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, she served on the usher board, and food and missionary ministries since joining the church thirty-nine years ago. Her church depended on her to plan menus, help cook meals, and execute large church functions, which she did with military like precision.
Gertrude was a blessing to her family and to her community. She was a pillar in the Manheim Park Association reporting issues, feeding and clothing local families in need, and working with the association to help clean-up crime in the area. Her family depended on her for her listening ear, her unapologetic, but honest advice and for many amazing holiday and Sunday dinners.
She will be dearly missed.
Ms. Gertrude Price is survived by seven children: Dianna Stevenson (Donald), Jimmie Price, Grace Price, Vincent Price (Gayle), Joe Price (Lakisha), Nicole Price, and LaTisha Price; mother, Mae Francis Brown; four sisters: Bessie Thompson (Isaac), Bobbie Butler (Bobby), Ormie Terry (Brad), and Ruthie Johnson (Ronnie); four brothers: Eddie Flagg, Ellis Brown (Betty), Ernest Brown, and Andrew Brown, Jr. (Tanya); thirty-three grandchildren; thirty great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
