Beginning in April 1959, and for a few years thereafter, Priscilla was the Austinville news correspondent for the Troy Gazette-Register. After graduating in 1960 from Troy High School, Troy, Pa., she was employed at the Eureka Specialty Printing Company in Troy. She later worked at and retired from Mansfield State College, Mansfield, Pa.
In with a leg brace, crutches and medical issues that plagued her for the remainder of her life; she, however, was not deterred. Getting behind the wheel and driving the familiar and unfamiliar highways was one of her passions. Wherever she went, she was always ready for a good cup of coffee, conversation and good food (not necessarily in that order).
Priscilla had a keen memory and was very strong-willed. Her hobbies included embroidery, plants and fairs. She also enjoyed attending classic car shows throughout the years.
Priscilla was devoted to studying the Bible scriptures. In earlier years, she attended Lancaster Bible College and completed correspondence courses through the Moody Bible Institute. She was a member of the Austinville Union Church, Austinville, Pa.
Priscilla is survived by her sisters, Alice Truffa, Troy, Pa., and Mary (Charles) Dekle, VanEtten, N.Y., her special aunt, Marjorie Oldroyd, along with many cousins nephews, nieces and friends. In addition to her parents and grandparents, she was predeceased by her sister, Florence Woodard, nephew, Terry Woodard, and, brother-in-law, Bart Truffa.
