Gahanna, Ohio | Age 94
Jean Kathryn Price (nee Fricker) passed away peacefully on October 9, 2016 at Sunrise Senior Living in Gahanna, Ohio. Born April 21, 1922 to the late Harry and Anna (nee Borsch) in Lakewood, Ohio, she was the oldest sister to Charles "Chuck" Fricker and Robert "Bob" Fricker. Jean married Moses "Chuck" Price in Avon Lake on June 29, 1946. After Moses' service in the military, which stationed them around the country, they settled in Avon Lake, Ohio.
Jean spent many years taking care of Anna, her mother, when she was ill, and then caring for her husband, Moses, when he had cancer. It was after their deaths that she continued her passions of teaching swim lessons at Aqua Marine, traveling, gardening, knitting, as well as teaching knitting classes, baking, line dancing, and taking care of her Yorkies.
Jean is survived by her son Gary C. Price (Deanna), her granddaughter Lisa Vogel (Adam), and great-grandsons Grant and Evan Vogel. Also surviving are sister-in-laws, neices, nephews, and many great-nieces and great-nephews. Jean was preceded in death by her husband Moses "Chuck" Price; her brothers Charles "Chuck" Fricker (Jean) of Morral, Ohio and Robert "Bob" Fricker (Ann) of Texas; her great-granddaughter, Chloe Vogel; her niece Lynn Fricker, and her nephew, Gregory Price.
