Priscilla White-Lineker passed away, peacefully, on New Years Day at her Seabeck home, surrounded by family. Priscilla was a charismatic lady who lived life on her terms. She was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on September 4, 1932, growing up in Massachusetts and New York until moving to a farm her father purchased in Carrollton, Maryland. Priscilla loved animals from an early age, raising Thoroughbred racehorses as a young woman and breeding Borzoi, or Russian Wolfhound, dogs all her adult life. Her Petrikov Kennels gained national prominence and she became a renowned judge in dog shows across the country. She was a drug and alcohol counselor for a time, and a lifelong philanthropist supporting both animal welfare and human welfare causes. Priscilla was preceded in death by her husband, retired U.S. Army colonel and Episcopal priest, George B. Lineker, and she is survived by her brother, Richard Johnson, six children, Melanie Reeder, Herb Lineker, Phoebe Casasanta, Les Lineker, Amanda Holmes, and Bert Lineker, stepson, James Lineker, and fifteen grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Her life will be celebrated in a memorial service at Saint Antony's Episcopal Church in Silverdale, Washington on Saturday, January 20th at 2:00 PM, and a later graveside service at Arlington National Cemetery where she will be laid to rest with her husband, George. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Priscilla's name to the Franciscan Hospice and Palliative Care Foundation, 2901 Bridgeport Way West, University Place, WA 98466, or to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, www.lustgarten.org.
