Marie E. (Price) Rippey, 74, Avis, died Sunday, June 14, 2015, at the Select Specialty Hospital, Harrisburg.
Born April 2, 1941, in Lock Haven, she was the daughter of the late Wilcie H. and Annabelle (Bauman) Price. On June 11, 1959, Marie married Bruce E. Rippey and they celebrated 36 years of marriage together until his death May 12, 1995.
Marie was a graduate of Lock Haven High School Class of 1959. She was a former member of the Church of Christ, Lock Haven.
Marie enjoyed discussing current events, traveling, reading and baking, with chocolate pie being her specialty. Most of all she loved spending time with her family. Large holiday gatherings were always special with a fabulous variety of food, goodies and other surprises, such as the annual Easter egg hunt, piñatas in trees and outdoor games. She especially enjoyed watching her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren search for the pickle hidden among the Christmas tree branches. Marie was a devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
