ELKHART — Pamela M. “Pam” Price, 51 of Elkhart, passed away peacefully at her home with her family at her side following an extended illness at 9:31 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12, 2018.
She was born Feb. 22, 1966, in Dallas, Texas, to the late Pearlie Mae (Jackson) Price and Woody J. Price, now known as Iman Muttie Abdullah.
Lovingly known as “Bleu” by her closest family members, she is also survived by her children Mahogany (Misty) Garner-Price and Marcus Price; grandchildren Marvone Justice, Jeane’ and Tyler Garner and Justin Price; brothers Roman (Tracie) and Sunrise Price; sisters Debra Ann and Simona Price; special “daughter” Tasha Coogian; and best friend and caregiver “Miss Angie”.
She is also survived by a host of loving nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, including extended family coming in from Dallas and Chicago.
Preceding Bleu in death were her brother, Cole Price and dear friend and “sister,” Sharon Evans.
The Rev. Dr. Dannell Brown and staff and congregation of AGAPE Missionary Baptist Church, 248 W. Wolf Ave., Elkhart, are honored to host Bleu’s homegoing celebration at 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 23, with visitation beginning at 1 p.m.
In accordance with her wishes, cremation arrangements will follow the service, assisted by Billings Funeral Home of Elkhart.
Bleu was the glue that held her family together.
Although she worked in the local healthcare and food industry most of her adult life, her first love and responsibility was her family.
She was a natural when it came to cooking and baking, and her sweet potato and cherry pies, yellow cake with chocolate icing and turkey and dressing dinners were all considered “national treasures”.
Besides her family, Bleu was also “mother” to the entire neighborhood, earning her the nickname “Mama Black”.
Family or not, guests of Mama Black were fed, loved on, cared for and sent on their way with a heart full of peace and blessings.
She preached a ministry of love and tranquility, and through that became a positive influence on everyone who knew her.
She will be best remembered for her sweet singing voice, her poetry, and her ability to be a lighthouse for those experiencing storms in life.
