Marjorie Lou Price, 76, of Fayetteville passed away November 24, 2017 at Fayetteville Health & Rehab. She was born April 22, 1941 and raised in Terre Haute, IN. After high school graduation Marjorie made her way to California where her first son, Ken, was born. A couple years later she found her true love, Donald Price Sr.; they were married February 23, 1962.
For several years they made their home in the Phoenix and Los Angeles areas where Marjorie was an amazing homemaker. Their family continued to grow with three more children: Don Jr, Carol and Jeff. In 1970, Don and Marjorie moved their family to Flippin, AR where they owned and operated Margies DX service station. They loved visiting with locals and celebrities as they were the last stop on the way to Bull Shoals Lake. After Don suffered a heart attack they were forced to sell their family business and soon returned to Phoenix.
In 1983, they returned to Arkansas and settled in Fayetteville where Marjorie went to work for the airport. She was a very social person and loved working outside the house but her main focus was always on her family. In 1987 Don suffered numerous serious health issues and Marjorie attended to his every need. A short time later she took a position in the catering department at the University of Arkansas. Don and Marjorie were avid football and basketball fans and she loved being part of the Razorback family. A couple decades later Marjorie retired but never gave up her Hogs armchair coaching duties.
Marjorie loved traveling, going to bingo and shopping; she didn’t care if it was yard sales, the dollar store or Hollywood’s famed Rodeo Drive it was all shopping and serious business. She adored spending time with family and friends and was always willing to share her gentle spirit, sense of humor, patience that could not be measured and her love for the Lord.
Marjorie was preceded in death by husband Don Price Sr. and son Jeff Price. She will be greatly missed by her children: Ken, Don Jr, Carol and spouses; numerous grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren; extended family and friends.

She also taught the four-year-old class at Sedona Church of Christ in Sedona, AZ. and at Robinson Ave. Church of Christ in Springdale, AR. for many years.

Carrie Ann Stiles has completed her purpose here on earth. She proved to the world who she was, what she could do, and how she would do it. She would express herself HER way and would love those unconditionally. She was friends with most and for those she wasn’t, you had to WATCH OUT! Carrie lived her life to the fullest and had the most infectious smile.
Carrie was born November 20, 1961 in Oklahoma to Clarence Edwin and Betty Jean Stiles. Carrie lived her life vicariously with being afforded many opportunities. She spent her longest years working with Open Avenues as well as Arkansas Support Network. Through these opportunities she became friends with most and formed several lifelong relationships. Carrie loved her coloring, reading, taking care of all her “Babies” and her soft fur animals. She also loved going out to eat as well as the movies. Carrie was also usually the first one at any party and one of the last ones to close it down.
Carrie is survived by numerous family members, friends, and loved ones. She was a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, companion, and advocate. She will truly be missed by all whose paths she crossed.
Carrie is finally reunited with her Momma as well as other family members and friends. She is continuing on, in her new life, laughing, joking, eating, loving, and just being Carrie. We will remember her smile, her warmth, her energy, her love for life, family and friends. She worked very hard all her life, up until the very end. She made a difference in the lives of many.
We invite you to join us and celebrate together her life.
Life Celebration will take place on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 1:00 p.m., at Beard’s Funeral Chapel, 855 S. Happy Hollow Rd., in Fayetteville. We also ask in lieu of Flowers, that you please bring a new Doll or Stuffed Animal. Carrie grew up loving her “babies” which were her dolls and animals.
