Margaret Ann Price, 90, of Bucyrus passed away Friday morning , February 7, 2020 in her sleep at Orchard Park Inn and Villas, where she has resided for the last four and a half years.

Margaret was born in Marion, Ohio on June 14, 1929, to Kenneth J. and Edna F. (Wood) Armbruster. A lifelong member of St. Mary’s Church, she attended St. Mary’s School, and St. Mary’s High School, where she graduated in the spring of 1947.

Later that year, on December 15, 1947, she married John F. Price in the rectory of the church. They were married nearly 52 years when he passed away on July 15, 1999. They were blessed with 6 children, 10 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren, with the first great-great grandchild on the way.

Margaret worked at the Cory Rubber Company in Marion, as a secretary prior to having children. She was a devout Catholic, and attended St. Mary’s Church in Marion, St. Joseph’s Church in Plain City, and Holy Trinity in Bucyrus. She had a beautiful soprano voice that could tame her children.  Margaret and John owned and operated Marion Piano Co. in Marion for many years, and then Price Piano Co. in Lexington, Ohio.

She loved music, and dealing with the public.  She had a heart of gold, and always prayed for anyone and everyone who was in need. She loved to cook, and made every holiday and birthday a special event for her family. Her faith was her greatest attribute. Margaret was a 25-year grateful breast cancer survivor.

Margaret is survived by her brother Joe (Donna) Armbruster, four children Bruce Alan, of Columbus, Catherine Marie Price, of Marysville, John Michael, of Mansfield, and Daniel Lynn (Barbara) of Bucyrus. as well as grandchildren Josh (Stephanie) Harruff, Candice Savage, Tammy (Ed) Traverse, John (Michelle) Dranschak, Ryan Arthur, Megan (Scott Ulliman) Arthur, Jennifer (John) Ballenger, Brian (Jessica) Price, Jay Owen, and Karla (Johnny) Morris, Sister-in-Laws  Evelyn Bellus Wrabel, Norma J.
