Price, Dorothy M. RAVENA Dorothy M. (Miller) Price, 102, passed away Sunday, June 8, 2008. Dorothy was born in Medway, daughter of the late William M. and Ida Miller, where she lived most of her life. She resided in Ravena for the past 20 years. She graduated from Coxsackie High School and Albany Teachers College. Dorothy had worked for Soccony Vacuum, Dun & Bradstreet and taught business courses at Greenville Central School and Coxsackie Central School. She was a member of the Medway Congregational Christian Church and had been secretary for the Medway Christian Cemetery Association. She was a quietly extraordinary woman. At a time when not many women did so, she graduated from college in 1926. She lived an independent and adventurous life until, at the age of 32, she married William W. Price. They were married for 48 loving and devoted years until his death in 1988. She was a wonderful, loving mother and grandmother who gave selflessly to her family and led gently by example. As a grandmother, she spent countless hours creating cherished childhood memories filled with books, games, encouragement and imagination. Survivors include her son, William H. (Lois) Price of Ravena; daughter, Dorothy I. Fritz of Guilderland; eight grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and niece, Shirley Miller of N.C. Dorothy was predeceased by her husband, William W. Price; sister, Edna Vosburgh; and brother, Sherwood Miller. All services will be private at the convenience of the family.
