A good life should be celebrated not mourned.
Girline Cope Price, 91, passed away on Sunday, January 3, 2021, at Pisgah Manor Health Care Center.
A native of Nebo, Girline was a daughter of the late Monroe and Annie Watson Cope. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Paul Price, who passed away in 1998; and her sisters, Willie Mae Burress and Myrtle Brackett.
Mrs. Price graduated from Sand Hill High School and retired from BASF with 40+ years of service. She was a longtime member of Edgewood Baptist Church, where she served many ministries, including as Sunday School teacher, WMU Director, singing in the choir, and working with VBS.
She was always ready to help anyone in need. She had a beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor, even during some of the difficult times in her life. A deep faith in Christ was the anchor of her life. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her greatest joy.
The best way to honor her life is to remember a time she made you laugh or comforted you in a time of need. Do the same for someone else.
Left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Sandi Turbyfill (Randy), of Candler, and Susie Nichols (Bobby), of Myrtle Beach, SC; brother, James Monroe Cope (Barbara), of Stedman, NC; grandchildren, Brian Turbyfill, of Raleigh, Jessica Lowe (Tony), Joshua Nichols, and Samantha Richardson (Tyler), all of Myrtle Beach; and great-grandchildren, Christian, Hailey, Lily, Malachi, Jack and Blair.
A private service and burial for the family will take place at Edgewood Baptist Church. For those invited to watch, the livestream will be available at www.facebook.com/grocefh.
Mrs. Price’s family expresses their appreciation to the staff of Pisgah Manor for the excellent care and compassion shown for Mrs. Price for many years.
