Carol D. Price
Carol Price, age 88, Philip, S.D., died June 7, 2015, at the Philip Nursing Home.
Carol D. Wilsey was born June 22, 1926, in Rapid City, one of nine children born to Frank and Nellie (Huss) Wilsey. She grew up and received her elementary education in the Pedro area before graduating from Rapid City Central High School. She then began teaching elementary school in Pennington and Haakon schools, riding horseback to school.
She was united in marriage to Charles Price on November 12, 1947. After their marriage, they made their home on Charles’ ranch on Ash Creek, which was open to many children, family and friends, staying three to four days at a time. In 1960, they adopted their daughter, Char, and in 1961 they adopted their son, Clay.
In 1967, they moved to the current family ranch on Bridger Creek, where they remained until moving into Philip in 1995.
Carol was very strong, both mentally and physically. She contributed value to the community, things that cannot be taken away. She was very gifted at most everything, from sewing to quilting, and just an all-around handyman. She sorted cattle and fished, and was an excellent cook and housekeeper. Carol enjoyed playing bridge and old country western music.
Carol is survived by her daughter, Char Price and her husband Dave Stangle, Philip; three grandchildren, Alyssa Bryan, Philip, Michaela Bryan, Wall, and Alaina Stangle, Philip; three great-grandchildren, Christian Stangle, McKenna Lafferty and Teegan Lafferty; two brothers, Wes Wilsey, Rushville, Neb., and Jim Wilsey and his wife, Caroline, Elm Springs; and a host of other relatives and friends.
