Obituaries

Pamela J. Cordle Allen

Pamela J. Cordle Allen, 58, formerly of Memphis, Tenn., and Bradenton Beach, died July 8 in Port Charlotte.

She is survived by sisters Cynthia Coffman, Constance Cordle and brother Michael B. Cordle. She was preceded in death by her husband Mack "Pistol" and nephew Cecil "Burt" Haynes.

Graveside services will be at 10 a.m. August 4. Burial will be at Memorial Park Funeral Home & Cemetery in Memphis.

 

Elise Ingram Price

Elise Ingram Price, 93, of Bradenton, died July 22.

Born in Millhaven, Ga., Mrs. Price’s family members were pioneer residents of the Eatonton, Ga., area. Her family moved to Palmetto in 1924, including her twin brothers, Carl and Lamar, and a younger brother, Thomas. Her sister, Montine, the only surviving member of the family, was born in the old Christine Ruth Hospital in Bradenton. Her father, Carl, was the developer of Bay View Park in the 1920s. He died at the age of 40, leaving her mother with five children. She was a graduate of Palmetto High School in the class of 1936. She attended Florida State College for Women (now FSU) and received her degree in elementary education in 1938. She was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority at FSCW and the Alumni Chapter in Bradenton. She returned to Bradenton and, when the Anna Maria Island School grew to 25 students, she joined the principal and only teacher, Lena Phelps, as the teacher of three elementary grades in one room. After a year at Anna Maria Island School, she became a teacher of the third, fourth and fifth grades at Samoset Elementary, where she stayed for five years.

During World War II, she worked at Hillsborough Air Base in Tampa and at the Sarasota-Bradenton Air Base. Married on May 24, 1947, to Edgar H. Price Jr., the couple established a home in Bradenton, where they have since lived except for the 60 days of the Florida Legislative Sessions from 1959 to 1966, when they moved to Tallahassee with their son, Jerry, for the session while Mr. Price served in the Florida Senate.

She was active in community life as a life member of Entre Nous, the Service Club and the Original Thirteen. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Bradenton since 1945, where she taught Sunday school and served as a department officer. Elise and Ed were married in the church's old sanctuary and celebrated their 62nd anniversary this past May.

Memorial contributions may be made to the First Baptist Church of Bradenton, 1306 Manatee Ave. West, Bradenton, FL 34205, or to the Salvation Army, 1204 Fourteenth St. West, Bradenton, FL 34205. Visitation was July 24 at Shannon Funeral Home, Bradenton. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be expressed at www.shannonfuneralhomes.com.

She is survived by her husband, Edgar H. Jr.; son Jerald S. of Tallahassee; grandchildren Hilleary Price of Bradenton and Carrie Price Whaley of Bradenton; great-grandson, Otis Preston Whaley of Bradenton; sister Montine Ingram Moreland of Swansboro, N. C.; and nine nieces and nephews.
