Gene Thomas Price, 80, of Franklin, passed away on Sunday, August 30, 2020.

Born in Washington, GA, she was the daughter of the late Frank W. and Gene Barksdale Thomas. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Frank W. Thomas, Jr. Gene was an Elementary Education graduate of the University of Georgia. Gene received her Master of Divinity degree from SMU Perkins School of Theology in Dallas and was an ordained Presbyterian pastor. She served as Associate Pastor of The Woodlands Community Presbyterian Church in The Woodlands, Texas for eleven years before retirement. Upon moving to Franklin, she was a member of Morrison Presbyterian Church and served as a Chaplain for Angel Medical Center. Gene was a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority, PEO, and Carenet. She enjoyed hiking, traveling, gardening, and reading.

While raising her children she actively served in leadership positions in her church and various community and civic organizations. When her “nest” emptied, she undertook the challenge of further educating herself for pastoral ministry. The Presbyterian Church requires rigorous theological training for its pastors. It is not easy to learn Hebrew and Greek when you are in your fifties, yet she went on to receive ordination and serve as pastor for a relatively large church where she was much loved by everyone.

Gene devoted her life to the service of others. She had a genuine love for people, with an uncommon ability to quickly form warm personal relationships with practically everyone she met.

Gene is survived by her husband of 58 years, Robert Price, Sr.; children, Robert Price, Jr. and wife Susan, of Spring, TX, Jackson Price and wife Lisa, of Ames, IA, Brian Price and wife Rhonda, of Lewisville TX, Alan Price and wife Ellen, of Reston, VA; sister, Barksdale Boyd and husband Tom, of Tiger, GA; eleven grandchildren; two great grandchildren and fourteen nieces and nephews.

An outside Celebration of Life will be held 11:00 am, Saturday, September 5, 2020 at Morrison Presbyterian Church with Rev. Noah McIntee officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Morrison Presbyterian Church, C/O Bob Price, 16 Serenity Ridge Drive, Franklin, NC 28734

Macon Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Dear Gene,
I am ever so grateful for your life and for what you did for me. You welcomed me in your home like a child of yours for a whole year during a very formative period of my life. You supported me in my faith, you taught me gratitude, you gave me many happy and everlasting memories. Ultimately you made me a better person despite my limits. You have planted so many trees of love during your life on earth! Pray for us all from the Heavenly Home and hold us in the Light. You will always be in my heart, in all our hearts. Che Dio Ti benedica e Ti accolga in Cielo, Michele

Love, Mike and Linda Moran
