Ernestine V. “Ernie” Price, 84, of Carlisle, died peacefully on Sunday, December 28, 2014, at home surrounded by her loving family and friends.  She was born on April 12, 1930, in Matewan, WV, a daughter of the late Emmett E. and Marie (Allara) Brown and was the widow of Colonel (Ret) James E. Price, US Army, who died Sept. 14, 2010.

She was raised with her sisters and cousins in Matewan and attended Magnolia High School.  She progressed on to Virginia Intermont College and then graduated from West Virginia University, where she met her late husband.  Ernie brought joy to everyone she touched, a warm smiling presence to the very end.  She loved God, family and friends, as well as her country and military, where she relished being an Army wife.  She was active in the Eastern Star, Carlisle Barracks Officer’s Wives Club and especially the Post Chapel, where she was active with the choir, Sunday school and PWOC.  She leaves behind an extended family of active and retired military friends in the Carlisle area.

She is survived by her loving and forever grateful sons; Emmett Price, Jim (and his wife, Andrea) Price and Rick Price, all of Carlisle, five grandchildren; Emmett Jr., Samantha, Alex, Kyle and Adam, one great-granddaughter, Kyla and one sister, Betty (and husband, Frank) Finley of Richmond, VA.  She was predeceased by one sister, Linda Lou Stephenson.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 3, 2015, in the USAWC Memorial Chapel, Carlisle Barracks, with Chaplain (LTC) Matt Wysocki, US Army and Rev. Rosemary Brown officiating.  A viewing will be held on Friday from 6 - 8:00 p.m. in the Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, 630 S. Hanover St., Carlisle.  Burial will be at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to USAWC Memorial Chapel or to the American Cancer Society.
