PRICE - Jessie Lee Etzel died peacefully at her home Jan. 11, 2004 at the age of 71.
She was born Dec. 21, 1932 to Glen and Amy Crawford Nelson.
She grew up in Helper during World War II and dearly loved "the jungle" along the Price River. As a precocious child she orchestrated war drives for metal, oils, and other scarce commodities. Jessie Lee left her childhood home in Helper to attend high school at Wasatch Academy in Mt. Pleasant. She forever cherished and often recanted her memories of the years spent at Wasatch.
Returning to Price at age 16 Jessie Lee attended Carbon College where she met the only love of her life, Al Etzel. Following her graduation at age 18, Jessie and Alfred were married Oct. 7, 1951. Together they shepherded their children through childhood, college and beyond. They were separated only by his premature death in 2001.
She was a member of the Price chapter of PEO and a member of St. Matthews Episcopal Church. Jessie shared her love of reading, world history and animals with her children, Alene, Glenn and Amy. She loved her 10 grandchildren beyond measure. She was admittedly somewhat of an anachronism in a world that had long ago moved on.
She is survived by three children; their families; and her beloved sister, Glennie Mate.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Jan. 17, at St. Matthews's Episcopal Church, 522 N. Homestead Dr., in North East Price (just south of Castle Heights School).
