WENDELL – Sarah Elizabeth Aman Price, 42, passed away to her heavenly home this Monday, January 22nd.
She was born in Wake County to loving parents Jesse Franklin and Ellen Barrow Aman and lived her entire life in Wendell and the surrounding area. She, her older sister, Becky, and younger brother, Davis, were very close growing up. She participated in sports and gymnastics, earning first place medal for vault, level 4, for the state in Raleigh. She graduated from East Wake High School. She briefly attended East Carolina University and went on to become a dental assistant in Raleigh for many years.
She was a very outgoing person with a winning smile and personality. She could light up a room when she entered. She was smart, funny, witty, and full of charm. She married Joey Price after high school and had three sons: Sam, Brody and Tyson. Sadly, they divorced but remained friends and have offered support for each other over the years in regards to the boys. Later, she had Caroline who was a light in her world, as well.
Sarah loved all her family and friends fiercely and would stand up for them in any circumstances. She loved her children intensely. They were her whole world. She was very proud of each and every one of them and loved to cook for them, ride bikes, go to the beach, go camping, bowling, visit museums, or just sit around and play cards with them. They will carry her spirit in their hearts.
In addition to her family, she had some very close friends who stuck with her throughout her life, through thick and thin: Heather, April, and Katherine. She cherished their friendship very dearly.
She was a member of Seven Marks Church in Raleigh and rededicated her life to Christ in 2023. She loved God and held strong to her faith throughout her life.
Sarah leaves to cherish her memory her four loving children, Sam Price, Brody Price, Tyson Price, and Caroline Aman, as well as her mother and father, Jesse and Ellen Aman. She is also survived by her siblings, Davis Aman, and Becky Collins (Patrick), her nephews Seth Collins, Jackson Aman, and Colton Aman, as well as her niece Katelyn Collins. She will be missed dearly by all those who knew her.
