Laura Annice Campbell Price passed away on Sunday, September 30, 2018, at Shannondale Independent Living in Maryville, Tenn. She was 96 years old, having been born on February 5, 1922, on Stoney Creek in Carter County, Tennessee. She was the last living child of six children of William Ballard White and Flora Rains White. Annice married Thomas Price after Clinton died.
In 1940 she married Clinton Campbell, who died in March 1973. All three of Ann and Clinton’s children are living. They, with spouses, are Donna Gale and LCDR William Rollinson, USN retired, of Maryville, Capt. Darrell W. Campbell (Bud), USN, retired, and Mary Ann of Warrenton Va., and Capt. James L. Campbell, USN, retired, and Carol of Maryville; a stepdaughter, Lauranne Vallone and husband John of Medford, N.Y.; a stepson, Tommy Price and wife Patricia of Johnson City, Tenn.; eight grandchildren and was very proud of each of them and every one of her 19 great-grandchildren. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
Clinton, Annice and Tom were all members and close friends from the Unaka High School Class of 1940. She had a positive, “can do” outlook and was always a leader in church, school and community. Annice was a member of the Poplar Grove Baptist Church before moving her membership to First Baptist of Elizabethton after she and Tom moved to town. At Poplar Grove, she taught Sunday School, sang in the choir, directed scores of Christmas pageants and either directed or helped with nearly every Vacation Bible School while her children were growing up. She and Tom continued to dedicate time, talent and resources to Poplar Grove and First Baptist before she moved to Maryville after Tom died. Late in her life, Ann grew to love Tennessee Lady Vols basketball and never missed watching them on TV. She frequently noted that she had played basketball for Unaka High. Throughout her life she was actively and unequivocally supportive of each member of her family, never missing a chance to share her pride in their lives and accomplishments. As a friend to many, she was quietly steadfast in her support and help when it was needed. She will be missed for all the right reasons.
