Stacy Lynn Price, 49, of Arvada, Colorado, passed away peacefully at home on June 22, 2023 surrounded by her immediate family, leaving behind a legacy of love and light that will forever shine brightly. She was born on October 28, 1973 in Jonesboro, Georgia to Richard and Elizabeth Price. Stacy is survived by her wife, Christina Price, her brother Wes Price, and her father Richard Price. She was preceded in death by her mother, Elizabeth Price.
Stacy was a singer/songwriter and music teacher who graduated from Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. In 2002 she earned a Master of Arts degree in Education from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Stacy’s journey as a singer-songwriter and music teacher brought joy to her community of friends and family. She was the epitome of a constant and life-long learner. She poured her passion into playing and making musical instruments, as well as engaging with complex software to remix and remaster her own recordings. As a performer, her melodic voice and heartfelt lyrics resonated deeply with all of humanity, touching the hearts of those fortunate enough to listen. She was an amazing music teacher, never focusing on herself but always focusing on the aspirations of others, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of all her students.
Stacy’s vibrant personality extended beyond her music. She cherished the simple pleasures of life, finding solace in activities such as kayaking, car camping, playing with her beloved dog Rocket, and transforming her home through remodeling projects. She had a very green thumb and found immense joy in planting flowers and creating beautiful landscapes in her yard. Even in the face of adversity, Stacy remained a beacon of positivity. She selflessly comforted and consoled others, even during her own battles, reminding us of the true power of compassion and empathy.
Stacy will be deeply missed by all who knew her, but her legacy will live on through her music and the impact she had on those around her. As her father Richard said, Stacy always followed the beat of her own drum. She may not have been perfect at many things, but there was one thing she was perfect at: being herself.
