Mildred was proud of her Chickasaw Heritage and passed that pride on to her family.
She was married for 60 years to Richard B. Price until his passing in 2008. Mildred was an amazing homemaker with a strong will, good character, and was a role model to us all. Mildred was a kind and loving matriarch of her large family, which was first and foremost in her life. Her deep personal relationship with Christ was the guiding principle in her life. Her natural empathy and compassion for others lead her to a life of service to everyone she met. Mildred always made you feel special, whether she knew you or not, by always putting herself last.
