Obituary of Ann Price Wells
Ann passed away on May 10, 2021, at the age of 97. She was born in Philadelphia, PA and was the daughter of Frank and Gertrude Price. When Ann was 12 years old, the family moved to St. Petersburg so they could live in what was then known as the city with the world’s healthiest climate.

Throughout her life Ann was very active in church, singing in the choir and serving as an elder. Her hobby was collecting antiques and during the 1960s she owned The Weather Vane Antique Shop located at 9th Street & 25th Avenue North with two of her good friends.
Later in life Ann and Harold enjoyed spending time with family and friends in Highlands, NC, where they owned a second home for 40 years. They traveled extensively in their later years and especially enjoyed going on trips with the American Stage Theater. She was a member of the St. Petersburg Junior League, the Stuart Society, Feather Sound Country Club, Vinoy Golf Club and the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
