LaNora Louise (Rouse) Price passed away peacefully on February 1, 2020, at her home in North Versailles after a long illness. Born July 19, 1933, in Pittsburgh to John and Margaret Rouse, LaNora grew up on the Northside, graduating from Allegheny High School in 1951. In September of that year, she married Donald Price, a marriage that lasted until his death in 2008.
LaNora worked as an operator for Bell Telephone and as a meat cutter for Kroger’s in Duquesne but retired in 1972 to be a stay-at-home mother to her daughter Dawn.
After Donald’s retirement, he and LaNora traveled extensively, visiting England, Scotland, Wales, and Italy, and finally taking their dream vacation to Egypt.
LaNora was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Donald, her brother, John Rouse, Jr., her sister, Romaine Franceschini, and her granddaughter, Katie Steinberg. She is survived by her daughter, Dawn Bach (Chris), her grandson, Jacob Steinberg (Beth Rousseau), her great-grandchildren, Michael and Chloe Rousseau, and was looking forward to meeting her great-granddaughter Allison in May. LaNora also leaves behind her sister and best friend, Ruth Beckey (Larry), sister Bess Albert (Bill), and brother Frank Rouse (Ginny), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and their families.
