Kathleen (Kathy) J. (McCarty) Price, died unexpectedly in Winston Salem, N.C. on Nov. 24, 2017 at the age of 75.

Kathy is survived by daughters Dawn Price and Colleen Mausser (Albert); grandchildren Thomas Mausser (Lucie) and Samantha Mausser; great-granddaughter Annabelle; brothers Dan McCarty (Elaine), Charles McCarty and Patrick McCarty. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lee A. Price.

Kathleen was born in December of 1941, in the Capital Hill neighborhood, Washington D.C. She was the daughter of the late Daniel E. McCarty and Edna M. (Huggins) McCarty.

The family settled in Orlando, Fla. and it was there Kathy met her future husband. In March of 1962, Kathy married Lee A. Price (USAF MSgt Ret) and they celebrated 50 years of marriage. During their marriage Lee and Kathy were fortunate to be able to travel all over the world. In 1962 their first daughter, Dawn was born in Orlando. Shortly thereafter while serving in England their second daughter Colleen was born at the 81st Tactical Hospital, R.A.F Bentwaters. From there they traveled across the U.S.

Kathy was very artistic. She loved to read, draw, paint, crochet, knit, cross stitch and sew. She could make just about anything from doll clothes, to clothing for toddlers, wardrobes for her young daughters and gowns for herself. For a short time she also owed a ceramic shop where she made her own dolls, nativity scenes, Christmas villages and other ceramic decorations. Not only was Kathy artistic, she was an excellent cook and she loved to bake, especially during the holidays. She also loved to fish with Lee. Anytime they could go fishing together was a special occasion. Kathy also worked for First Union Bank.

Kathy was a generous, kind and loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend. She will be missed dearly by all she knew, loved and loved her.

There will be a graveside service at the Rest Haven Cemetery in Lock Haven, on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017.
