Carol Price Obituary

Carol Jean Blymiller Price passed from this life into her hope of eternity with Christ on September 6, 2023. She was born October 25, 1932; daughter of Isabel Camp Jack and Dean Miles Roberts. Her father died when she was only 17 and shortly after, her only sister, Virginia died as well.  As a young child, Carol enjoyed her days on the farm with the Welsh ponies. She said, if you could catch them, you could ride them. Those were the years during the war and times of rationing meat, leather and sugar. They’d gather at the farm on weekends and share a picnic.  Carol graduated as an RN from Youngstown nursing school, in 1954, and married Raymond H. Blymiller the same week. Together 26 years, they raised 4 daughters, Wendy (Earl) Belcher, Laurie (John) Rafle, Heidi (Ernie) Price, and Tammie (Kevin) McCauley. She leaves behind 12 grandchildren: Jacob Belcher, Jessica Hicks, Jackie Vajda, Caroline McCullough, Hannah Rafle, Ryan Price, Josh Price, Ian McCauley, Aaron McCauley, Benjamin McCauley, Peter McCauley, and Moriah McCauley. In addition, 23 great grandchildren are added to her legacy. Her joy of playing the piano will live on through many of these offspring as their fingers run up and down the keyboard, from chopsticks to Fur Elise.  Carol was a strong, resourceful woman, which made for great camping adventures in the family’s Trotwood camper at either Twin Lakes, Cook Forest or Buckaloons. When dad bought the sailboat, camping at the rustic, remote campground, Handsome Lake, was no problem for her. In her later years, she boldly drove a fifth wheel across the country and up to Lake Ontario. In addition to raising the four girls, the home had a menagerie of chickens, ducks, a cow, some horses, a few cats, and dogs, and who can forget, Yacky, the pet grackle. But there was always a dog. Ricky will miss curling up at her feet.  At the age of 55, she became an EMT, serving the Sheffield community, and was famously known for delivering a baby in the Mineral Well parking lot. Active in the community, she also drove the hospitality bus for the Sheffield Senior Center, and was an active member of the Barnes United Methodist Church for over 50 years. She had fond memories of singing in the combined choir in Sheffield. Card club, Apple Cider’s square dancing and volunteering at school made for busy years.

Carol married Earl Price in 1982. Golfing and bowling became new pastimes and Florida became a winter home for a few years. The “Lunch bunch” met regularly at the Hillside, the Bowling alley or the Shaw House. Sewing and being a proud grandma though, remained her greatest joys.  Music was also a big part of her life. She was a part of the famous Rayen’s school acapella group in Youngstown, Ohio. To her girls though, singing rounds in the car with the harmonies of both mom and dad, had the greatest, lasting impact. When you were being summoned to come home from the swimming hole, or from the neighbors, it was her whistle that sent the message loud and clear!  Mom taught us to look at the glass half full and to find joy in the small things, like pointing out the snowdrops in spring, the peepers that sing, and the rich smell of elderberries simmering while fresh bread was baking. Most of all though, I think we may always wish to simply sit at the kitchen window, share a cup of coffee, and watch the birds, just one more time.

1 Thessalonians 4;13, 14

“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”

A service of remembrance will be held October 29 at the Barnes United Methodist church at 11 AM.
