Roberta Mae Price
June 15, 1925 ~ April 9, 2014
Roberta Price, 88, passed away on April 9, 2014, at Colonial Vista Rehab Center in Wenatchee, WA. She was a resident of Wenatchee for the last 53 years. She was born in Oshkosh, NE on June 15, 1925, and she later moved to Payette, ID with her family. It was here, that she met and later married her husband of 70 years, Robert “Bob” Price. She worked in various jobs from clerk to bookkeeper and, in 1978, she, along with her husband, started Bob’s Engine Clinic. They spent some of their retirement traveling around in their motorhome with some of their other relatives. Roberta was the kind of person that, once you met her, you were instantly attracted to her and were friends. She’ll forever be known as kind and caring to everyone.
Roberta was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Price; parents, Roy and Mabel Deshazer; three sisters; five brothers; along with numerous in-laws and special friends. She is survived by daughter, Barbara (Terry) Edmondson of East Wenatchee; son, Larry Price (Gary Nicholson) of Wenatchee; grandchildren, Robin Olson and Derek Edmonson of Wenatchee; and three great-grandchildren.
To the Colonial Care Rehab Center for showing our mother compassion, dignity and love, right up to the end and to the nurses and CNA’s who took her into their hearts and made her feel like part of your family, a “Very Special Thanks” to all of you.
There will be a Private Service held for Roberta and Robert Price on a later day. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee.
