She had 2 daughters Caron and Theresa. They later moved to the Kenai Peninsula for work and to raise their family.
Her family wrote, "Priscilla's life was filled with Joy as her middle name stated, she lived up to that. She was the most caring loving, giving person we could know. There were never many bad days with my mom. She loved crafting, gardening, puzzles, and reading. If she wasn't making or baking something for someone, she was outside in her greenhouse or fishing and camping. She would have wanted everyone to celebrate she loved family gatherings and being with friends."
She was preceded in death by her mother Margaret (McElhinney) Lindeke and brother, Daniel Lindeke and foster brother, Nick McCarlo.
