Price, Idell Christine Hayek
Idell Christine Hayek Price, 90, of North Fond du Lac, died peacefully, Saturday, March 2, 2013, at the Fond du Lac Lutheran Home, with her son by her side. She was born in Phlox on May 8, 1922, the daughter of Clara Butler and Wenzel Hayek. She married James Arthur Price on June 19, 1948, at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Phlox. He preceded her in death on June 3, 1972.
Jim and Idell moved from Antigo to Fond du Lac, in 1956 and to North Fond du Lac in 1960. Idell cherished living and raising her family in North Fond du Lac. She was a member of Presentation Catholic Church and worked as a "lunch lady" at Presentation School. She also worked for Wells Manufacturing Corporation and was a bartender. Idell was a fun-loving, caring person who adored spending time with family and friends, especially when playing sheepshead, Yahtzee, cribbage, or poker. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her greatest joy. Idell was skilled in the art of knitting and crocheting and her handiwork, shared by her entire family, is a part of the legacy she leaves behind. In recent years, Idell treasured playing Bingo with her friends at the Fond du Lac Senior Center and at the Northgate Apartments in North Fond du Lac.
