(April 25, 1825 - May 17, 1898)
Price, Fifth month 17, 1898, at the residence of her daughter, Mary Honor Conard, Ann W. Price, aged 73 years and 22 days.
Thus closed a life of long and honorable service. Ann Wright was born and reared in Adams County, Pennsylvania, and removed to Baltimore County, Maryland, on her marriage to Moses D. Price. They later lived in Harfor County, from which place they came to Muscatine County, Iowa, and from there to Ida County in 1878. Since the death of her husband in 1881, her home has been with her children of whom three survive: Martha P. Jarrett, Harford County, Maryland; Dillon Price, Pasedena, California; Mary H. Conard, Ida Grove, Iowa.
In Ida County, Mother Price was isolated from Friends, but maintained the habit and spirit of her people, and was known as a faithful adherent of the Society of Friends. Her influence was sweet, like "ointment poured forth." Those allied with various churches remember her sweet spirit and calm frame. Her closing years left no wound in the feeling of her friends, and many a blessed memory remains. Occassional visits of travelling ministers of her own faith greatly refreshed and comforted her, and she came to her close with full resignation, indicative of the prepared state. Her funeral was largely attended, and was conducted after the manner of Friends, according to her wish. C. Blakely, a Methodist minister, adding much comfort by the remarks he was moved to make, and two others testified to the good advice she had often given in the hour of need.
