Carol LaVerne Price
Dec. 22, 1936-Dec. 28, 2021
Our beloved mom, Carol passed away peacefully Tuesday evening unexpectedly and quickly. While she had been living with several health issues, she loved playing solitaire on her iPad, watching home improvement shows for hours, and visits and phone calls with friends and spending time with her family. Carol had just celebrated her 85th birthday, with so many people showering her with love through cards and phone calls. She was so happy to have spent her favorite holiday, Christmas, surrounded by her family and was looking forward to the new year.
Carol was born and raised in Alameda, CA, graduating from Alameda High School in 1955. She met her husband Stan in Alameda where they married in 1957. Carol and Stan moved their young family of three daughters to Pleasanton in 1968 where Carol was still residing. In the early 70’s, Carol answered a call from a friend, providing daycare for her daughter. This eventually turned into a business that spanned years in the 80’s and 90’s. She made a lasting impression on the children in her care. Her house was always decorated for every holiday big or small and Carol always had matching outfits and accessories. She taught her daycare kids how to deal with challenges and how to celebrate successes and always led with love. She enjoyed staying in touch with many of “her kids” to this day.
Carol was an amazing neighbor, sharing the same court with many of them for over 50 years. She was a friend to all and treated friends like family. There was always a place at the table, a listening ear, and a silly story or antic to lighten any day. She was cherished by so many. We’re sure we will never know the extent of how far her impact on others has reached.
Carol is survived by her daughters, Kim Johnson, Theresa Moore (Craig Moore) and Lorinda Price; and grandchildren Zack Johnson, Sierra Moore and Emma Grace Alcantara, Cory Moore (Kristin Moore) and Caley Moore and Great Granddaughters Ava and Kaia Moore. Her kind, fun and giving spirit will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Friends and family are invited to a funeral mass at 10 am on Tuesday, January 11th at St. Augustine’s Church (3999 Bernal Avenue Pleasanton). Visitation will be held a half hour before mass at 9:30 at St. Augustine’s. Burial to follow at Holy Sepulchre 26320 Mission Blvd. Hayward.
