PRICE, MARJORY SADLER (1917 ~ 2004). Marjory Sadler Price, wife of Ned Price, Sr., was born in Houston, Texas, on March 6, 1917, to Dickerman and Lillian Cade Sadler. She attended public schools in El Campo, Conroe and Livingston, Texas, and Tyler Junior College.

Marjory and Ned Price, Sr. were married on December 23, 1938, and lived in Tyler, Texas, where Ned served as a state representative and county judge until they moved to Austin in 1958. Marjory was a wonderful partner to her husband throughout his career as an elected and appointed holder of public office because she loved people. She made many friends because of her warm, genuine and encouraging spirit, and they responded to her in kind. She was a great talker and listener. In high school, she was the Texas Interscholastic League's Girl State Declamation Champion.

She was a natural on the piano, and her family and friends loved to listen to her play. Marjory was active as a volunteer, member and officer in many charitable and civic organizations, including the Settlement Club of Austin, the Docents for the Governor's Mansion, the Tyler Council of Church Women, the Austin Lawyer's Wives' Club, and the State Officials Ladies' Club.

She was a faithful and active member of Marvin Methodist Church in Tyler, and then of University Methodist Church in Austin.

Mrs. Price passed away on March 30, 2004, and was buried three days later in the Texas State Cemetery, next to her husband. She is survived by her two sons, Ned Price, Jr. and William Bennett King Price and numerous grandchildren and a great grandchild.
