Twila J (Thompson) Price

October 17, 1938 — September 13, 2022


Twila J. Price age 83 of Amarillo joined her beloved husband, Marvin, in heaven on September 13, 2022.

Memorial service will be at 10:00A.M. Friday, October 21,2022 at New Resurrection Church located at 1500 Forrest, Hutchinson, KS.

Twila was born on October 17, 1938 in Garfield, Kansas to her parents Merle E. and Doris Bishop Thompson.  She married the love of her life and best friend, Marvin Mark Price in Sterling, Kansas on October 21, 1956.  The couple would share four children and the next fifty four years together, until Marvin’s death in 2010.

While in Kansas, Twila worked as the title clerk for Boyd Motors. After moving to Amarillo she worked at the Autoplex and then at the Clements Unit as an inmate records clerk for the TDCJ until her retirement. Retirement was short lived as she soon started working part time at JC Penny until her health declined.

She was spunky and was a collector of all things, but especially sunflowers and nativities. Twila was known for primping and for her well-kept nails.  Twila was a jovial individual that loved her family immensely. She had a fabulous sense of humor but could become a bit feisty if needed.  She was a member of Westview Christian Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Marvin Mark Price; two brothers, Phil and Neil Thompson; and by a sister, Leah Currie.

Twila is survived by her children, Marie Neusch and her husband Leonard of Amarillo, Martin Price and his wife Sally of Lyndon, Kansas, Michael Price and his wife Rose of Mounds View, Minnesota, Merle Price and his wife Ruth of Denton, Texas; her sister Eva Huntsman of Buda, Texas; by eleven grandchildren, Derek, Stephenie, Markie, Sarah, Rachel, David, Mark, Ryan, William, Courtney, and Jake; and by twelve great-grandchildren, Deklen, Dean, Devin, Sylvia, Michael, Jacob, Jasmine, David, Gunnar, Shayla, Sadie and Henry.

In Lieu of flowers family request donations be made to Westview Christian Church.
