Louise H. Price

Louise H. Price, 88, of Jayess, passed away Jan. 16, 2024, at Lawrence County Nursing Center in Monticello. Louise was born April 1, 1935, in Jayess to Hoover J. and Martha Peavy Hammond.

A funeral service was held Jan. 26 at Forest Grove Methodist Protestant Church in Jayess. Graveside service followed at the church cemetery. Bro. Bobby Dawson officiated, with Wilson Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

Louise was a loving mother, a fantastic cook, a devout Christian, and a long-standing member of Forest Grove Church. She was a hard worker. It didn’t matter what needed to be done, she was always ready to help out. She was very talented and made nearly 300 caps for the cancer center in Jackson. Her crochet abilities were second to none. She crocheted for church events and nursing home staff and residents.

Ms. Price is survived by her daughter, Martha E. Price, of Jayess; her son, Johnnie Price Jr. (Melinda), of Oxford; three grandchildren, Jeffrey Simmons, of Apex, N.C.; Justin Simmons, of Tupelo; and Johnnie Price III, of Oxford.

Louise was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Plez Henry Hammond.
