Mrs. Price was a resident of Anniston for most of her life. She moved to Centre in 2010 and resided at Cherokee Village Assisted Living Center until her death. Thelma loved growing flowers and being with her family and friends. She enjoyed cooking for others and was famous for her chicken dressing, vegetable soup and chocolate meringue pies. She never missed attending her Medders family reunions which brought her great joy. Mrs. Price was a sweet, happy and generous lady who liked to joke, laugh and smile. She never met a stranger, nor said an unkind word. Mrs. Price and her husband were charter members of Cheaha Vintage Auto Club and both served as treasurer for many years. She and Talmadge enjoyed many outings in their 1929 Model A coupe with club friends. Flowers will be accepted or donations may be made to Big Oak Ranch. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Cherokee Village, Amedysis Hospice and Dr. Byron Nelson and staff of Centre for their loving care. Online condolences made at
