April 6, 2022 ~ 5 Nisan 5782
With heavy hearts, we share the passing on April 6, 2022, of Alana Auslander-Price, a week shy of her 47th birthday. Alana courageously battled metastatic breast cancer for 9 ½ years. She was a bright light of hope to all that knew and loved her.
The Louisville native graduated from Manual/YPAS High School, completed her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Western Kentucky University, and earned her Master’s degree in music conducting from Middle Tennessee State University. Alana taught music in three states over a 16-year career, ending as the band director at Seneca High School. She impacted hundreds of young lives until being diagnosed with cancer at age 37. It was then she found her true passion in working for the YMCA Northeast LIVESTRONG program, supporting others on their cancer journey. She was also a member of Louisville Winds, Twisted Pink, Hope Scarves, and Keneseth Israel Congregation.
Alana leaves the light-of-her-world daughter Jada, husband Jon; parents Michael and Lee Ann; sister Marissa; father and mother-in-law Larry and Jacquie Price; brother-in-law and family Nick, Jessie, and Berkley; Uncles and Aunts Bobby and Becky, Brian and Mitzi, Beth and Janine; cousins Sheila (Imre), Rachel, Adam (Martha), Lynn (Gino) and a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who are inspired by her daily.
Our family is especially grateful to the YMCA-Northeast LIVESTRONG group, the entire staff at CBC Group, and the Lincoln Elementary Moms for their support and kindness to our family.
