Betty Price


Betty Sue Osborne Price, 93, of Cleveland, passed from this life into the open arms of Jesus on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.

She was the perfect example of everything a woman should be. She was always busy in the kitchen baking her famous sugar cookies, that everyone talked about. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and would have very soon been a great-great-grandmother. Betty and J.W. were members at Valley Head United Methodist Church.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph Sr. and Gertrude Osborne; sister, Patsy Jenkins; and two brothers: Bob and Jack Osborne. 

She is survived by her loving husband of 72 years, J.W. Price; two daughters: Sherry Norwood (Nick) and Connie Panni (David); grandchildren: Amanda Norwood-Peterson (Lenny), Nicky Norwood (Amy), Mike Panni (Ruthie), and Lisa Panni; great-grandchildren: Lauren Norwood (Dakota), Emily Peterson (Dawson), Gunnar Norwood, Garren Norwood, Emma Waddel, Ada Karoline Panni, Aidan Panni, Avery Panni and Asher Panni; sister, Judy Lee; brother, Ralph Osborne Jr. (Judy); and numerous extended family members and friends.

The family will receive friends from noon until 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, 2019, at Companion Funeral Home, located at 2419 Georgetown Road N.W., Cleveland, TN 37311. 

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2 p.m. at the funeral home, with burial to follow at Lee Cemetery. Jeff Archey will be officiating the service.

Contributions can be made to Valley Head United Methodist Church, or Hearth Hospice in her memory.

You are invited to share a personal memory of Betty, or your condolences with her family, at her online memorial located at
