Please enjoy some additional memories and personal stories from the family......
She was born in 1950, a true child of the 60's. She was always proud of the fact that she attended the Woodstock Music Festival in 1968.
Although she suffered a near fatal car accident in her early 20's she survived and battled back to a normal life after a 3 month hospital stay. She later met and married Jim Winch and they shared over 25 years traveling to her favorite places including Colorado where she eventually lived for 8 years. She loved the mountains and the western nature including flowers for which she always had a true affection . Some of her other favorite things included cats, knitting, music and TV and of course her friends and family, including her several nieces and nephews. As a child, her mom, Eleanor fondly remembers Priscilla was always smiling and often found flowers to bring home to her. Her sister Margie remembers Priscilla recording songs with her grandfather's help. Her brother Larry remembers Priscilla and shares they had many adventures together. Priscilla moved back to RI from Colorado in 2013 and became sick shortly thereafter. She waged a very courageous battle with lung cancer lasting over 2 years.
Her sister Margie, who shares her sister's love of cats, inherited Priscilla's cat Cinnamon.
She will be missed by all....
