Priscilla Mae Chadbourne Obituary
Priscilla Mae Chadbourne, beloved wife of 56 years to Carl Chadbourne, passed through the Veil of Glory on February 1, 2018 to be with her Heavenly Father and her special friend her Redeemer.

Priscilla was born in Pittsfield, MA to her late parents, Oscar and Alice Herrick, on September 21, 1936 and grew up in the southern Berkshires of Massachusetts in the village of Southfield.

Priscilla accepted the Lord as her savior while in the third grade and never wavered with that belief. Priscilla graduated from New Marlborough High School as both class president and valedictorian. She was a graduate of Bob Jones University with a BS degree in Education.

Her first teaching experience was in a two room country schoolhouse, now on the Registry of Historic Buildings, as a third grade teacher. She always regarded those years as especially exciting and loved teaching and seeing children develop to their potential. Whatever she did, whether in what she said or did, was for the glory of god.

Priscilla met her husband Carl while both were teaching at the South Egremont School, Egremont, MA. They married and had an adventurous honeymoon traveling across the US and Mexico. Priscilla and Carl moved to Southington, CT and raised their two children. Priscilla continued to share her love of teaching by directing a nursery school and with Sunday school students.

Priscilla and Carl retired to South Carolina, where Priscilla continued her love of learning by taking classes to study southern history, eastern European religion, music and US presidents. Priscilla spent much of her retirement devoted to her grandchildren and is especially remembered as a strong and caring presence in their lives.

Priscilla is survived by a daughter, Rebecca Hopper ("Sam"), of Greer, SC; a son, Christopher Chadbourne (Jean), of Newton, MA; a granddaughter, Rachel Austin (Robert), of Riverside, CA and three great-grandchildren; granddaughter Elisabeth Rodriguez (Joseph), of Galveston, TX; a granddaughter, Susannah Preacher of Houston, TX; a sister, Jane Grohs (Fred), of Torrington, CT; and a brother, William Herrick, of Dalton, MA.

She was predeceased by a grandson, Sgt. Matthew Preacher US Army; and two brothers, Edgar and Johnny, in MA.

The family is grateful for the care and support of Lutheran Hospice of Greenville, especially Christine Dixon, Shewanna Nesbit, Hanna Goldstein, and the staff at Rolling Green Village of Greenville.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Fairview Presbyterian Church, PO Box 1664, Fountain Inn, SC, 29644; or to the , South Carolina Chapter, 4124 Clemson Blvd - Ste L, Anderson, SC 29621.

A memorial service is scheduled for Monday, February 26th at Rolling Green Village, Greenville, SC. Interment will be in Warren, MA at a later date.
