Surrounded by family, long-time Union Gap resident Myrtle Price passed away on April 17, 2019, at her home at the Parkside Assisted Living Facility in Union Gap, Washington. At Parkside, Myrtle blossomed and spent the last five years of her life as a social butterfly, endearing herself to staff and residents alike.
Myrtle was born to Catherine Martin Schachtschneider and Erich Konrad Schachtschneider on Aug. 28, 1930, in Winthrop. She remained a Methow Valley resident until 1960. She was a 1948 graduate of Twisp High School and married Garl Kut’le Price in Twisp in 1955. Myrtle had no children but was mother and grandmother to Garl’s six daughters and their children.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, brothers Glen Roy Schachtschneider and Erich Ellis Schachtschneider, as well as two stepdaughters. Myrtle leaves behind sister Dorothy Frances Schachtschneider Shaw (Yakima) and brother Edvin Earl Schachtschneider (Twisp).
