Priscilla was a 1958 graduate of Brunswick HS in Maine where she was voted most athletic girl her senior year, a pioneer in playing 5 on 5 girls basketball in grammar school in the early 1950s.  She was a lifelong fan of almost any sport, especially basketball and the UCONN women’s basketball program.  She was an avid reader, an accomplished bowler and ceramics artist and a dedicated religious education instructor. Priscilla ran a home-cleaning business with her dear friend Cindy Wagner for 32 years.  “Peep” dedicated her life to her family, friends and neighbors - sewing and gifting over 200 “Huggies” - homemade blankets that matched the likes and personalities of each individual.  She loved animals and was a devoted supporter of numerous children’s charities and faith-based ministries.  She will be remembered as the fun aunt and neighborhood mom and as a gifted storyteller - she absolutely loved to laugh, most especially at her husband Chuck’s jokes, no matter how many times she heard them.
