WOODSTOCK -- Priscilla A. Cox, 87, a longtime resident of Rte. 175, Woodstock, died Jan. 21, 2011, at the home of her Great-niece Cindy Bradley, with whom she had resided for the past 15 months.
She was born on Feb. 3, 1923 in North Woodstock, to Irving J. and Mary (Burnie) Cox.
A lifelong resident, she was a 1941 graduate of North Woodstock High School.
During World War II, she worked at Pratt & Whitney in the Connecticut factory manufacturing aircraft parts.
Returning to Woodstock after the war, she worked at the IGA Store and then Sprague Electric in Plymouth.

She was an avid hiker and was proud of the fact that she had hiked all of the 4,000-foot peaks in the area. She also enjoyed swimming and traveling.
