In lieu of a memorial service, the family had a time of gathering and sharing of memories.
Lenora was born August 21, 1923 at Perry, Oklahoma, the daughter of Charles Franklin Cockrum and Mary Margaret (Tontz) Cockrum. She was one of thirteen siblings. She graduated from Hayward High School in Noble County. She was married to Oakley Kenneth Price on April 15, 1943 in Ponca City. The couple was married for 67 years. Lenora was employed as an Avon sales representative for many years. She was promoted to district manager and the family moved to Arkansas but they missed Ponca City too much and moved back. She was a member of the First Christian Disciples of Christ Church. Her enjoyments included her family and in earlier years traveling the country, playing the card game pitch, playing cards with her grandkids, crocheting, baking and cooking. Two of her most cherished recipes were chicken and noodles and red velvet cake. She was active in the PTA when her daughters were in school and very active in the church. She always had a smile on her face, she would smile and wave to the other residence of the nursing home. She was a very well loved and respected woman in the community.
