Vance Jenkins left a message on May 5, 2022:
Dear Jim and Family, Like all of us, I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Stephanie's passing. I can't imagine what you all are going through right now. She was very special to me and to all who knew her. It would be impossible to thank her for all that she did for me in my formative years as an educator. She was my first ADEPT instructor when I entered the profession in 2001, and later, she was my TAP Consultant when I was a TAP Master Teacher. She was with me throughout the journey - always offering a kind word and fierce encouragement. But before all of that, I was blessed to have known you both at Aldersgate UMC, serving as your Organist and Music Associate. I was en route back to S.C. yesterday, and sadly missed the service, but I just finished viewing it. Wayne did a great job capturing what all who loved her already knew. And I went this afternoon to the Remembrance Chapel and said a prayer for the repose of her sweet soul. We will see her again. Until then, you all have a beautiful angel watching over you with love and pride. I pledge my prayers to you all in these difficult days ahead - that our Great God will give you His Grace and Peace and Comfort and Love through your grief journey. With my deepest sympathy, Vance.

I had the privilege of working with Stephanie at Monaview Elementary for 5 years. I was able to observe first-hand her dedication to the students, parents, staff, and community. She was such a wonderful advocate for all children. She will be missed by everyone who knew her, but her legacy will continue. She has touched the lives of so many in countless ways. I will continue to keep the family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Dear Family, I have so many lovely memories of Stephanie from my years at Monaview. She came there bringing a positive presence and joy into that environment. She was a huge influence, larger than life, wherever she went. I am so sorry for your loss.
Jennifer Dailey left a message on May 4, 2022:
Words cannot begin to express how sorry I am for your loss. I had the privilege of working with Stephanie at McKissick as the school secretary. Due to the ongoing construction project at our school, we got to share an office for a good part of a school year. I have so many fond memories of our time together. Laughter and tears. She was truly one of the most down to earth, caring and encouraging administrators I've ever worked with. Her love for her family, friends, school communities were the stuff of legends. I am thankful I had the chance to be her friend. Praying for all of you during this very difficult time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Stephanie Price, the best life has to offer! I remember Stephanie teaching at Stone Academy. She was the best! As a fellow principal, I always admired her work, devotion to her school, high skills, and compassionate heart. Our world is lessened with her passing. God protect and bring peace to her family and dear ones. No doubt she is dancing with the angels.

Dear Jim, Although we have never met as a part time resident of Louisburg Square I wanted to send you my condolences. I became a part of the LBS community after losing my fiancé in 2019. My son and daughter (and grandchildren) live in Charlotte, . My prayer is that you have peace in knowing that Stephanie is in a beautiful place. Again, condolences to you and your family. Sincerely, Madylin Croy

I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Stephanie but rejoice that she passes into Glory! She was my principal at Monaview when I started teaching in SC, and it was so evident that she loved the students and families. She was not only an encourager and supporter of faculty, she was genuinely interested in our lives. She will be missed by all. Condolences to the family.
Steve Hand left a message on May 3, 2022:
Jim & Family, I am so saddened by the passing of Stephanie. She was such a committed person to living a loving, productive, and Christian life to the fullest. Hold on to all of your precious memories as they will provide comfort and cushion you during this difficult time. May the Lord give you peace. Sincerest heartfelt sympathies and condolences.
Carol Griffin left a message on May 3, 2022:
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I knew Stephanie through my children attending Stone Academy and then as my principal at Monaview. At the time we had all been through a difficult time and Stephanie was sent there to boost moral and help get the school back on track. We fell in love with her and always knew we had her full support. It was some of the best years of teaching that I have had as a teacher of now almost 28 years. Always a smile, always a kind word. My heart hurts that we have lost her but know your wife, mother, grandmother has touched and impacted MANY lives. Faculty and students. That is how your live should be. I love you Stephanie Price and you will be missed.
Gloria Talley left a message on May 3, 2022:
Dear Jim and family, My heart aches for your loss. I had the good fortune to work with Stephanie when I worked in Greenville County Schools with Professional Learning and Leadership Development. Stephanie was a talented and caring teacher and leader who always put students first. Her compassion, enthusiasm, care and intellect were on display each day. I learned so much from her and am grateful to have known her as a friend and colleague. May God’s Peace and Love be with you always.

Our hearts and thoughts are with the Price family. We have had the pleasure to know and hear about the special place you held in your mother's life over 30+ years we have known Jim and Stephanie. We know she will always be in your hearts.
Melissa Stovall left a message on May 2, 2022:
I was so saddened to hear of the loss of such an exceptional lady. She was my principal at McKissick many years ago and I kept up with her through social media. She commented often on how my boys were growing as she was my principal when I became pregnant with my first boy. She was always so loving and supportive through a difficult transition time for our school. I will never forget my time with her. My thoughts and prayers are certainly with her family during this time of sadness.
Sharon Hall left a message on May 2, 2022:
I first met Stephanie in the spring of 1990 when she as an administrative assistant at Ambler Elementary School, and I was shadowing her principal for my own administrative internship with Furman University. When the principal had to leave for an executive session of the board, she shuffled me off to shadow Stephanie. We instantly connected. When I became assistant principal at Buena Vista Elementary School and an opening for third grade teacher came up, I thought of contacting Stephanie to apply, and she was hired. She was such a joy to work with in every capacity! So good at her job and fun to be with. When I left to work at the District Office in Professional Development, Stephanie was then working at Stone Academy. My colleagues and I thought she would be perfect as overseer and coordinator of the ADEPT Teacher Evaluation program, and our superintendent agreed. She joined us there and was fabulous to work with in every way--astute, organized, personable, and compassionate. Our lives touched later as well when I was in the principal position for TAP at a local high school and she became our TAP mentor. Such a gift! The last time I saw Stephanie was when we visited her at her home in Pickens after an injury. Even though she still had trouble walking, she was full of joy! I will miss her greatly, and I think of her often. Jim, Erin, Brian and families, my heart grieves this tremendous loss with you, and I am praying for your grieving process and for your comfort. Much love, Sharon Hall

Jim, Brian and Erin: Your wife and mother needs no eulogy where she has been, and no introduction where she is going. She is well known in both places, by the family she raised and leaves behind - that is eulogy aplenty - and by the simple assurance of tomorrow, for which she lived. We will all miss her sweet spirit, her gracious smile, the zest with which she lived every day - but we can't help but think how less bountiful our lives would have been, had we not known her. R/TLM

Jim, I just learned today of Stephanie’s passing. I am so sorry to hear this news. My sincerest condolences are with you, Brother. May the Lord watch over me and thee when we are apart one from the other.
Christine Tirador left a message on May 2, 2022:
Price family, I am so saddened to hear about Mrs. Price's passing. She was my principal at Monaview Elementary School years ago. Mrs. Price was the sweetest, most caring and nurturing person around. I will never forget in 5th grade at the new building, we had a play one evening and parents had to park out on the field where it had rained very heavily the day before. Many cars were stuck out in the mud so Mrs. Price called a towing truck and did not leave until she made sure every student and family had safely left. My family still speaks so highly of her to this day as we have younger family members who attend Monaview currently and my dad always says what a shame that she is no longer the principal there. Mrs. Price left a beautiful and lasting legacy. My thoughts and prayers to the family for losing such a genuine soul.
Tom Taft left a message on May 2, 2022:
Jim …please accept my deepest condolences and genuine best wishes upon the loss of your wonderful wife. Though I had never met her, reading her obituary revealed what a wonderful wife, mother, & human being she was. I wish I could say or do something to help you in this sad moment. At least feel the warmth of my Goodwill and friendship and appreciation for all you do for my family and my partners at Judson Mill. Tom Taft

Stephanie was the most amazing woman! She gave of herself freely to everyone and pursued all endeavors with passion and energy. Her presences changed lives…friends, students, teachers, and most importantly her family . Her enthusiasm was contagious! My heart breaks for all her family who I know are hurting beyond measure. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers . Thank you for sharing your wife and mom with all of us who loved her!

Jim, Erin, Brian, Pam and all of your family, I cannot put into words how very sorry I am for the loss of Stephanie. Nothing I can say would be adequate enough to express the sadness I feel for each of you. She leaves a huge void in your lives and in the lives of those she touched. Please know that you are in my prayers and in my thoughts today and in all the days to come. I know that in time, only God can truly heal your hearts. With much love.
Debbie Arechiga left a message on May 1, 2022:
Oh my heart… where do I begin. Stephanie was truly a light and special presence to everyone she met. She brought me in as a literacy consultant to Monaview many years ago and we immediately connected both personally and professionally. I loved meeting and working with Erin and enjoyed many dinners with Jim talking basketball and family. Truly some amazing memories. Over the years I have kept in contact with Stephanie following her travels and love for her family and grandchildren. Her gifts were many and I rest assured that her light will continue to shine in those she impacted over the years. My heart is so sad right now and lots of love to Jim, Erin and the entire family. Wish I could be there to embrace you all. Love Debbie no

Stephanie was a true inspiration to many educators, including myself. When I received my principalship she was my first call to gain insight how to be successful in my new role. It was a blessing to have been inspired and mentored by Stephanie!! Sending love and prayers to her family whom she deeply loved.
