Moniciea “Ann” Price, age 72, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 27, 2023. Ann was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and was a proud veteran of the United States Army. She continued her career as a security guard serving national security interests at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. After Ann retired from Y-12, she continued to spend her time in the Oak Ridge area staying close to family. She enjoyed holidays with family and friends and helping others when she could. She was a great sister and an involved aunt to her numerous nieces and nephews.
Ann loved nature. She valued and collected paintings of nature. She enjoyed many outdoor activities including camping, fishing, and boating. One of her favorite places was the Smoky Mountains National Park near Cade’s Cove. Ann was known for her endurance and strength. Even after being diagnosed with health conditions, she persevered for many years, continuing to fish, spending time outdoors, and enjoying life.
