Shirley Price

Shirley Ann (Leibley) Price was born on New Years Day, 1939, the daughter of the late Earl
and Myrtle Leibley. She lived eighty-four beautiful years as a beloved wife, mother,
grandmother and great-grandmother before passing away with loving awareness on
October twenty-eighth at home surrounded by family. Her husband Kenneth Price and
siblings Stanley and Patsy preceded her in death. 
Shirley grew up in the Cabbage Hill neighborhood of Lancaster and graduated from
JP McCaskey High School. She worked in the Lancaster School District and Armstrong
World Industries in market research. After retiring, she volunteered over twenty years of
service for Meals on Wheels and for the Literary Guild of Lancaster. She had a passion for
travel, food and theatre which she shared lovingly with family and friends. The ability to be
genuine, honest, fair and live life to the fullest were of utmost importance to her. She will be
deeply missed by all who knew her. 
Shirley is survived by her children Karen Napolitan, Stephen (Terry) Kerek, Suan J. (Paul)
Vastola, Christine (Stephen) Miller, Dennis “Chip” (Samantha) Kerek, Michael Price, brother
Ronald, as well as eight grandchildren and ten great- grandchildren with one on the way. 
In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to Meals on Wheels of Lancaster.
