I was sorry to hear the sad news about Priscilla. My sympathies to all the family at this difficult time; I am so sorry for your loss. I think of the Saint Andrew's years we spent together and remember her twinkling eyes and laughter as we served pizza lunches together to hungry students. RIP Priscilla.

I met Priscilla at Saratoga Foothill Club where we served on some committees together. We were in the same book club and found we both had a love of travel and history. We enjoyed spending time talking about a myriad of subjects....often at Starbucks. Priscilla was a good friend and I will continue to miss her.

Priscilla made quilts with us for 8 years, from the very first month of our founding. Whenever I see popsicle colors I'll think of Priscilla, her artistry, her big smile and her laugh that filled the room.

What a wonderful mother wife grandmother and person; Mrs. Schneider truly could do it all (and I mean everything!) gracefully and with such good spirits and humor! I can still hear her laugh, and she always greeted me with a genuine smile and well hello there! She will be missed!
