May Edith Price

May Edith Price, 91 years young, teacher and artist, passed away suddenly April 17, 2014 in Houston, Texas.

May was born to Milton and Lillian Goodman on July 22, 1922 in New York City. They moved out west to Los Angeles where May finished high school and went on to graduate from UCLA in 1942. She married Curtis K. Price in May, 1944. They moved to Fallbrook in 1956 and together raised five children there. Curtis was an accomplished attorney and practiced law in Fallbrook for many years.

May is survived by eldest son Mike and Melanie, Newport Beach; son Steve and Rose, Tucson, Ariz.; daughter Margaret Johnson, Houston, Texas; son David, Fallbrook; daughter-in-law Sue, Fallbrook. She is also survived by many wonderful grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her many friends and art students. She was preceded in death by her husband Curtis and son Tony Price.

May resided in Houston since 2003. She retired as a kindergarten teacher from the Bonsall School District in Bonsall, in 1985. After her retirement, she resumed her love of painting. She was a wonderful artist and shared her talents with her many students. She was still teaching art classes at the age of 91.

May was a generous soul. She opened her house and heart to many that needed a home, stray kids and pets. She loved the beach, traveling, cooking, and especially sharing a story with all whom she loved and she loved everyone.

May was a three-time cancer survivor (colon, breast, and skin). She never gave up on life, God, or people.

May was admired for her courage, strength, spirit, and joy. She touched many lives and was loved by so many.

Her spirit, humor, wit and resiliency will be greatly missed.

The Price family is having a celebration of May’s life on Sunday, June 22 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the VFW Post on Old Stage Road, Fallbrook. Those who would like to join us for food, drinks, and memories will be welcomed.
