Patricia (Pat) Ann (Price) Sheldon, 81, of Laurel, Montana passed away June 15, 2019, from pulmonary fibrosis with her family by her side. She was born to the late Anna and Oren Price on August 15, 1937 in Laurel. She graduated from Laurel High School in 1955. She married her high school sweetheart Jerry Gene Sheldon on June 5, 1959 and had just celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary. She is survived by her husband Jerry Sheldon, children Gregory Sheldon of Arvada, Colorado; Janet Sheldon (Wallis Adams) of Anchorage, Alaska; Daniel Sheldon (Joni) of Arvada; Dennis Sheldon of Hammond, Louisianna; and Burt Sheldon of Denver. She is also survived by her sister Orene (Price) LaFortune (late Edward) of Westminster, Massachusets and her brother Kenneth Price (Sandra) of Corvallis, Montana. She has three grandchildren Ashley, Jonathan and Brandon all of the Denver area and numerous nieces and nephews.

Pat worked as a bank teller/bookkeeper in Laurel, Billings and Missoula for eight years following graduation and later at the Post Falls Public Library for 12 years. She had what she referred to as her “25 year maternity leave” in between working. She lived in Idaho (Kooskia, Orofino, Post Falls) for 33 years eventually returning to her much-loved Montana. She retired to Red Lodge where she and her husband built a house and then sold and returned to Laurel where she was born.

Pat was a kind, gentle soul with a shy smile. She was proud to be a strong Montana Girl. She loved to travel in their small motor home, camping and enjoying National Parks and the outdoors. She had driven to 49 states (minus Hawaii). Pat was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.

A Celebration of Life Ceremony will be held in the fall. Condolences may be left online at
