Rose Price

Granite City |

Rose Marie (Wortham) Price, beloved mother, grandmother and nurse, passed away peacefully on March 19, at the age of 93. She left behind a legacy of kindness, generosity, and remarkable achievements.

Born on February 26, 1931, in Saint Louis, Missouri, Rose was the daughter of Robert & Edna (Adams) Wortham.

A dedicated nurse, she retired from St. Elizabeth's in Granite City. She continued her legacy of always being the caregiver and came out of retirement working in nursing homes and at St. Anthony's hospital in Alton until just before her 80th birthday.

Rose loved spending time in her yard and showing off her plentiful flowers and vegetables. She enjoyed sewing beautiful dresses for her granddaughters, and cooking many a delicious meal for her family, lest no one forget her homemade bread.

From a young age Rose had a love of music and animals. There was rarely a time you wouldn't find a pet under foot.
