Margaret “Peggy” Gail Lamke Price ’43 passed away on April 5, 2020. Her family was the center of her heart, while her church and Columbia College served as hallmarks of a life devoted to service. A true friend of the college, Peggy demonstrated commitment through action. Peggy and her husband, Jim, founded the Price-LamkeJennings-Bassett Scholarship in 1998, honoring five generations of family members who attended Columbia (Christian) College. She accomplished countless great works as a community ambassador for CC while serving 33 years on the Board of Trustees from 1975-2008 and was named Trustee Emerita in 2008. In addition, Peggy was president of the CCAA from 1971-1973 and named the college’s first ever CCAA Director Emerita in 2015. Her beautiful smile and can-do attitude will be remembered dearly. The Price family legacy was featured in the Winter 2012 issue of Affinity.
