     Nancy Cotney Price, a beacon of love, generosity, and kindness, was born on June 1, 1948, in Langdale, Alabama. She passed away on July 28, 2023, in LaGrange, Georgia, leaving behind a legacy of love and compassion that will continue to inspire those who knew her.

     Nancy was a woman of many passions, all of which were deeply rooted in her love for life and the people around her. She had an unwavering love for the outdoors, often finding solace in the tranquility of nature. Whether it was fishing in the serene waters or tending to her flower garden, she found joy in the simplest of things. Her love for country music was infectious, often leading to a trip to go dancing.

     But it was her love for her family that truly defined her. Nancy's heart held a special place for her children, Dawn Meadows, Michael Sims, and Denise Meadows (Tommy Rogers), who she loved unconditionally. Her brother, Tommy Scavonne (Patricia Tinsley), was not just a sibling but a confidant and a friend. Her grandchildren, Jonathan Lane (Kacie), Kaci Lane, Ashley Landreth (Adam), Haley Adams (Jacob), Alaina Jade Sims, and Joshua Brock Sims were the apples of her eye, and she cherished every moment spent with them. Her great-grandchildren, Chance Meadows, Emma Ward, Charleigh Colley, Dallas Adams, Walker Adams, Ayrton Landreth, Anberlin Landreth, Jonathan Dewayne Whaley, Keeghan Lane, Bristol Lane, John Michael Lane, and Kamry Elder, were her pride and joy. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews who were dear to her heart.

     She was preceded in death by her parents, James F. Scavonne and Katherine Smith; sister, Shirley Mann; grandson, Justin Meadows; great grandson, Carter Meadows.

     Nancy's love for people was evident in her actions. She had a heart of gold and would go out of her way to help anyone in need. Her generosity knew no bounds, and she was always there to lend a helping hand, a listening ear, or a comforting shoulder. Her kindness was a beacon that illuminated the lives of those around her, and her memory will continue to inspire us to be better, to love more, and to live fully.

     She was a woman who loved the beach, not just for its beauty but for the memories it held. The beach was her happy place, a place where she could relax, unwind, and spend quality time with her family. These memories, like footprints in the sand, will forever remain etched in our hearts.

     Nancy Cotney Price was more than just a loving mother, grandmother, and friend. She was a woman who lived her life to the fullest, who loved without conditions, and who inspired everyone around her with her kindness and generosity. Her life was a testament to the power of love and the impact one person can have on the lives of others.

     Nancy was a Christian and enjoyed attending The Upper Room Church in Valley, Alabama until her health prevented her from doing so.

     The family will have a private service at a later date.

     As we remember Nancy, let us not dwell on the sorrow of her passing but celebrate the joy she brought into our lives. Let us honor her memory by living our lives with the same love, kindness, and generosity that she showed us. Let us remember her not for her departure but for the life she lived, the love she gave, and the legacy she leaves behind.

     Nancy's family will hold a private service at a later date.
