Marjorie Bernice Vaught Price, 87, of Eubank, Ky., passed away Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013 at Cumberland Nursing & Rehabilitation.
She was born in Arrowsmith, Ill. on Sept. 2, 1926, daughter of the late Sam and Helen Doolin Vaught. She was a faithful member of Nelson Valley Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday School. She was a member of the McKinney Homemakers Club, Pulaski County Republican Women's Club and the Pulaski County Daughters of the American Revolution. She was also known to many as the Avon Lady for some 35 years until her health declined.
She is survived by one son, Gary (and Barbie) Price of Somerset; two daughters, Brenda Taylor of Eubank and Connie (and Keith) Lawson of Somerset; three brothers, Creston (and Pauline) Vaught of Somerset, James Vaught of Kettering, Ohio, and Donald (and Joyce) Vaught of Waynesburg; two sisters, Virginia Spears and Midge (and Bill) Dye, both of Somerset; sister-in-law, Janet Vaught of Springboro, Ohio; six grandchildren, Wayne (and Mona) Taylor of Somerset, Scott Taylor of Somerset, Gary R.

Casada of Somerset and Sydney Lawson of Somerset; seven great-grandchildren, Jordan Taylor, Lance Price, Layne Price, Tristan Williams, Quinton Sharp, Lily Price and Brendon Casada; and numerous nieces and nephews.
