Gethers Funeral Home - Moncks Corner Obituary

Omega Prioleau, the eldest daughter of the late Chance and Orene Gadsden Prioleau, was born in Russellville, South Carolina on December 8, 1941.  As she blossomed, her family instilled their love and an abundance of knowledge that would last a lifetime.  She departed this life on October 14, 2020.

Omega  grew up in a Christian home and accepted the Lord at an early age, as her personal Lord and Savior, under the Day Dawn Baptist Church membership.

Omega graduated from Russellville High School in Russellville, SC (now St. Stephen, SC) receiving her achievement in 1960.  After high school she moved to New York City seeking a greater opportunity for herself and her family.  She always was a giving person.  While in New York City, she was a loyal employee for Pilgrim Laundry, Riteway Laundry and retired from The Health and Racket Club.

After living in New York City for forty-four plus years, Omega relocated back home to be with her son and loving family.  While in New York City, she became a member of Friendship Baptist Church and after returning home she renewed her membership at Day Dawn Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend Joshua Prioleau.

Omega loved to talk and talk and talk.  She was never a stranger to anyone.  Her smiles were contagious.  Rather than being a sit-at-home retiree, Omega joined the Berkeley Senior Center in St. Stephen, SC.  There, she gained hobbies of word search and bingo.  Within the family she was known as being the “Queen of Bingo”.  Omega enjoyed the Senior Center so much that she would refer to it as going to school because the bus came to pick her up.

Omega’s favorite saying was “Lord have mercy”.  She was a sweet spirited person and she instilled this in her son and grandchildren.

Omega leaves to cherish her sweet-spirited lifestyle:  her loving and devoted son Scott (Tonya) Prioleau of Bonneau, SC, (Omega adored her devoted daughter-in-law Tonya), two grandchildren Chauncey Prioleau of Charlotte, NC and  Allysia “Cissy” Prioleau of Bonneau, SC; adopted grandchildren Nie’eshia Mitchell, Jaylen Jefferson, and Jy’Aire Jefferson; one great grandchild (her pride and joy) Master Logan Pressley; two sisters Althea Prioleau of St. Stephen, SC and Cynthia P. (James) Blanding of Bonneau, SC; nephews and nieces, Raymond (Valerie) Prioleau, Sr., Martin Robinson, Evan Blanding, Olympia Tuten, Tyeshia Prioleau, Temeka Prioleau and Aureole Blanding; a brother-in-law Sterling Robinson and a host of grand and great grandnieces and nephews along with an adopted brother, William Alexander and lots of family and friends.

Omega was preceded in death by her mother, father, and sister Dotsey Robinson.
