June 25, 1929 - March 30, 2021
Carol Lee Pickering Price was born on June 25, 1929 to George Wayne Pickering and Adelia (Della) Will Ryan in Payson, Utah. She passed away peacefully in Orem on March 27, 2021 at home with Alyson. She is survived by her children: Cynthia Whittle (Daniel), Alyson Brown (Brent), Holly Goodwin, Troy Alan Price (Laurel); 21 grandchildren and 55 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Sheila Kendall Fortner. She was preceded in death by her husband, Alvin Orvill Price; son, Tracy Ryan Price; brothers, Nilan Pickering and Kearn Guarnett Kendall. Carol went to grade school at Peteetneet and Taylor Elementary in Payson. She moved to Nephi with her family in the 4th grade. She graduated from Juab High School, where she was a cheerleader and played the clarinet in the marching band. She then attended LDS Business College. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She held callings as a temple ordinance worker, primary president and teacher, young women’s advisor, and an awesome visiting teacher. Her family was the most important thing in her life. It is impossible to love kids, grandkids and great grandkids any more that she did. She would shop all year long at EVERY sale in the county so she could have plenty of gifts for the “Christmas” store she provided for the grand kids. She also loved to do yard work and flower gardens until she was well into her late 80s. Carol and Alvin owned and operated Price’s Ice Cream Parlor for 16 years. Some of the jobs she held were at BYU in the housing department, secretary – including typing and short hand – for a businessman in Salt Lake, Payson High School in the resource department, and customer service at Nature’s Sunshine where she retired. Carol met Alvin while she worked at BYU; she was dating his roommate. Alvin needed to give her a ride one night and the love blossomed from there. She lived in Provo on 1st South in the 7th ward for 9 years. They moved to 1600 North in Orem and lived there for 10 years. She then moved to West Mountain and remained there for 36 years until Alvin passed away. Her final move was into the home of Alyson and Brent for her last 6 years. During those final few years, she spent time with her sister, Sheila, for a couple winters in Arizona and for several months during the summer in Logan. The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Aspen Senior Day Center. Carol went to the center daily for several years. The staff is so caring and attentive. A special thanks goes to Dignity Hospice and their excellent, caring staff, especially her aid Marisela, and for Dignity hiring Carol’s granddaughter, Torrie. Torrie, who was able to manage the care for Carol as her hospice nurse and was there for her when she passed. There is no finer hospice nurse than Torrie. Thanks also to the great staff at Berg Mortuary. Funeral services will be held for the family at 11:30 a.m., Friday, April 2, 2021.
