Linda Price Gallaway lost her battle to cancer on September 27, 2017 at the age of 68. On December 27, 1948, Linda started off life as a fighter, born premature in San Antonio, Texas to William and Doris Price, she was the oldest of 4 children.
After graduating from Marian High School in 1968, Linda became a mail clerk at the Goodrich factory in Pasadena. On a weekend beach retreat with a friend, Linda met the love of her life; Fred Gallaway. After a one-month courtship, Fred swept her off her feet and they married July 1, 1970. Linda spent her life as a homemaker and devoted her time to raising her 4 children. Linda’s fighting spirit came in to play again in her 40’s when she was diagnosed with kidney cancer and underwent surgery to have her kidney removed. Years later in 2013, she would find herself in a battle again when after a fall she was told that her cancer had metastasized to her bones and radiation would be required. For 3 years she kept cancer at bay, until 2016 a tumor was found on her skull and she was put on a cancer treatment. Her final journey was in 2017 after another fall and broken bone. Linda decided to cease with her treatment and live the remainder of her life enjoying her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
