Mary E. Price Obituary
Mary E. Price, 84, died on June 24, 2013 in Brigham and Womens Hospital. A long time resident of Brookline, Massachusetts, she was raised in Easton, Pennsylvania, and was the daughter of the late U. Grant and Ethel (Alpaugh) Price. She leaves her brother and sister-in-law, Stanley and Dorothy Price, of Easton, Pennsylvania, and a niece, Pamela Lechner, of Sacramento, California, as well as many friends. Mary Price, whose family and close friends called her Pat (in her childhood, her father had called her Patsy and it got shortened to Pat), moved to the Boston area at age 18 to attend art school. She had a long career in advertising, including the Boston Herald Traveler newspaper, and eventually at the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, from which she retired as advertising manager. After suffering a stroke shortly after her retirement 20 years ago, Mary was treated for the resulting aphasia at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. Grateful for the care she received there, she remained a strong supporter of the hospital, participating in the Stroke Group and the Aphasia Group, and contributing to the creation of a speech therapy area in its newly opened Charlestown facility. She was also an active member of the Aphasia Group at Boston University. Mary was a talented watercolorist, and enjoyed theater, fine dining, and travel throughout the United States, Canada, and England. She also collected antique buttons, a hobby shared by some of her female family members. Services will be at the South Easton Cemetery, in Easton, Pennsylvania.

Contributions in her memory may be made to the Speech Language Pathology Department, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, 300 First Avenue, Charlestown, MA 02129.
