Carol J. Price, 80 of the Town of Harrison, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2019, at her home with her family at her side and under the care of Ascension at Home Hospice.
She was born in Rhinelander on May 20, 1939, the daughter of Carl and Ruth (Ochs) Dickison.
She was employed for 31 years with M & I Bank.
Carol enjoyed her girl's night "Klatch" with her special friends, even as the years went by and the group got smaller.
She enjoyed golfing and bowling and was on a Tuesday women's golfing league through the Northwoods Golf Course and a Tuesday evening women's bowling league.
Carol's favorite pastime was her love of horses. She had them since she was a little girl. Carol loved all animals and they had a special place in her heart, even snakes! Ha! She was a member of the SPCA. Her garden and the barn were her real love.
Carol and her husband Jerry had a special lunch date every Thursday.
They would drive into town for burgers and roast beef, park down by the lake at Hodag Park, even in winter, then off for ice cream. Even their dog Carly got the leftover waffle cone. Carol also enjoyed a lot of picnics with all her relatives and friends, mostly at Nanas or brother Punk's.
Carol was daughter to Carl and Ruth Dickison, sister to Martin "Punk" Dickison and Jean Otto, wife of Jerry Price, mother to Todd and Tracey, grandmother to Corey Price, great-grandma to Jeramiah, Jillian and Jailyx. She loved all her nieces and nephews very much. Each one held a special place in her heart.
Carol fought with a true warrior spirit, just as she took on life.
Let the horses carry her and all the animals guide her as she goes through Strawberry's field to the big garden. Remember to stop and smell the flowers and say "hey" to Carol.
At Carol's request there will be no visitation or service.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Hildebrand Funeral Home & Cremation Specialists, 24 E. Davenport Street, Rhinelander, Wisconsin 54501, 715-365-4343.

How do you say "Goodbye" to a wonderful friend of 75 years? I know you are looking down at all of us and wishing we wouldn't grieve so hard, but missing your essence is one of the hardest things we will have to endure. To Jer, Tracey and Todd I send my deepest condolences and love. There will never be another force as loyal and amazingly fierce as Carol's love. She was truly one of a kind and will always be held in our hearts with great regard. Remembering her will be in the daily bouts we have with nature. She will always be felt in the animals she loved and the wind we feel on our faces and the sounds we hear on the lake. Fly free, my dear friend. I will see you around .
