Remembering Peggy Price

Alumna kept CC close to her heart

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-Lamke- Jennings-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.
