ROLLA, Mo. -- It's not the New Year's Eve that Ethyl Price's family expected.
"Anything we find has sentimental value," said Ethyl's daughter-in-law.
Instead of celebrating with her, they're mourning the loss of her.
"I've always been petrified of storms. I've seen damage. I just never thought it would hit our family," said granddaughter Lisa Price.
After a day of battling critical injuries, the 76-year-old woman became the 4th Missourian to lose her life at the hands of an EF-3 tornado that ripped through Rolla at midday Friday.
"(She) loved her family. (She) did anything we needed and wanted," said Lisa.
Ethyl was home with her lifelong best friend Alice Cox when the storm hit. Lisa imagines how they spent their last few minutes together.
"They hung out at the house and on the porch and watched TV. They chit-chatted," said Lisa.
Both women lost their lives.
