Ms Mary Lou Price Has Passed



It’s with a very heavy heart I share the devastating news that Ms. Mary Lou Price passed away this morning. She was a cornerstone of the sheriff’s office for 54 years and touched more lives than anyone I’ve ever known. Personally, Ms. Price didn’t allow a birthday or holiday to pass without a card or thoughtful gesture and I know many of us can say the same. I hope you will offer prayers and comfort for those who feel this unimaginable loss. She was truly a gem in this world and will be missed beyond words. Rest in Peace, Ms. Price.
