June 7, 1942- February 7, 2009
Priscilla Gardner of Grand Junction, at the age of 66, passed away peacefully at home on February 7, 2009.
Priscilla was born to Noah and Gladys Scott in Lynch, Kentucky in 1942. As an adult, she worked as a clerk for the F.B.I. in Washington, D.C. There, she met a young U.S.A.F. Staff Sergeant named Gregory Glen Gardner and became his wife. Both were passionate believers in the "pass it on" philosophy that reflected their belief in passing on goodness which befell them. They were blessed with four children.
After losing her son, Gregory Michael and husband, Gregory Glen to cancer, Priscilla continued the tradition of "passing it on" by helping fund cancer research and believed in the greater good of the community. Friends and loved ones speak of Priscilla's determination and strength in the face of adversity.
Priscilla is survived by her daughters, Treece Williams, Catherine Booth, and Suzy Sikora. She is preceded in death by her beloved son, Gregory Michael Gardner and husband, Gregory Glen Gardner.
A private family service will be held on February 13. Any one who wishes to make donations can place them at Grand Junction Hospice and Palliative Care.
