Aunt Boody, She was my second mom growing up and she was very intelligent and she was the funniest person growing up and she was by far, my favorite Aunt in the whole wide universe. I love you Aunt Boody and I miss you so much.

She was the best neighbor you could ask for. I will never forget going to the drive in movie to see Alfred Hitchcock `The Birds´ we laughed so hard! I miss her everyday!

Priscilla had such a joy for life and a beautiful energy. She was always smiling and had the best laugh! She was great at her job, was so helpful and brought such joy to the UCCE office. We worked together for a few years, but I always enjoyed our visits and conversations. Such an upbeat, kind and genuine colleague and friend. I feel blessed to have had her in my life for 25 years. Thinking of her family. She always shared pictures and stories, and was such a proud mom and grandma. May the memories of her bring you peace.

I am so saddened by Priscilla's passing. She and I spent many hours on the phone, scheduling 4-H activities. She so impressed me with her cheerful attitude and caring ways. She went above and beyond for the kids of 4-H. I will miss her, and send my condolences to her family.

Priscilla worked with my late husband at the UCCE office for nearly 20 years. Ed adored her. She always had a great attitude and big smile when I'd stop by the office. If the kids were with me, they get some sort of treat (especially on Halloween!). What a lovely woman and beautiful human being. The world is a darker place without her shining light. Love & Light to her family.

Priscilla was amazing and loved by our 4-H Camp family. She was always there to help with camp booklets and all the other paperwork involved. Always with a smile even when ill. Our prayers to her family. She will be so missed.

My life has been blessed by this beautiful soul. Many years ago, Priscilla was my supervisor, but as time passed, she became my dear friend. We shared a love of music and concerts, and I'll always treasure our weekend trips and time spent together. My deepest condolences to her beloved family. Love you, P Ro. xo
