Bonnie Lou (Schneck) Price passed away on Friday, December 11, 2020, after a lengthy illness. She was born to the late Paul Schneck and Lois (McAdams) Schneck on November 6, 1934. She was a devoted wife, mother, and artist extraordinaire. She graduated from Marion Harding High School in the class of 1952 and married classmate Theodore (Ted) Price in September of that same year. They enjoyed 68 years of married life.
Bonnie spent the early years of her marriage financially supporting the family while her husband studied at OSU and raising three children to adulthood. Later in her life she studied the art of watercolor painting and became very successful as evidenced by her status as a signature member of both the National Watercolor Society (NWS) and the American Watercolor Society (AWS). Her paintings were regularly chosen for inclusion in the annual exhibitions of NWS and AWS. In the years 2005 and 2006 her entries in the AWS exhibition were chosen for special recognition.
In addition to painting, Bonnie became proficient in the art of stained glass. Although she never pursued this with the ardor of her watercolors there remain many examples of her glass chops in her Marion home.
In addition to her parents Bonnie was preceded in death by her step-father, Ray Peak and sister Donna Arthur. In addition to her husband Bonnie is survived by children; Terri (Oscar) Gonzalez, Claremont, CA., Randy (Carolyn) Price, Palos Verdes Estates, CA., and Douglas (Mary) Price, Thousand Oakes, CA., grand-children; Caitlyn Price, Andrew Price, Brittany Price, Saharra Gonzalez, Victoria Gonzalez, great-grandsons; Declan & Mason Rowe as well as numerous cousins.
