Biographies

Lady Joyce Ethel Price's outstanding contribution to the Girl Guides both in Australia and worldwide was first recognised at a commonwealth level in 1968 when she was appointed as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE). In 1977 she also received the Girl Guide Fish Award; and in 1978 her efforts were further recognised when she was appointed to the Order of St Michael and St George - Commanders (CMG).

Joyce Ethel Price was born in South Australia on 8 August 1915. She attended Goolwa Primary School, Adelaide High School, and completed an MSc at the University of Adelaide in 1938. She married James Robert (Sir Robert) Price in 1940 (died 1999) and had three children: two daughters and one son.

Lady Joyce was appointed as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1968 and, a decade later, in 1978, was appointed to the Order of St Michael and St George - Commanders (CMG) for her service to Girl Guides. In 1977 she also received the Girl Guide Silver Fish Award. Her longstanding commitment to the Girl Guides can be seen in a chronological listing of some of her work and committee appointments between 1938 and 1970.
