Obituary

A Connecticut native, Priscilla was born at home in West Hartford, CT on January 19, 1923. Her maiden name was Spence. She was graduated from Lasell College. She moved to New Smyrna Beach with her husband D. Allen Hall in 1997 after many years in Miami, including being in their house when Hurricane Andrew devastated the surroundings. They both became active members in the United Church of Christ, New Smyrna Beach. Allen was finance officer and Priscilla was a choir member. While in the Miami area, Priscilla became a full-time travel agent with Travel Time which opened many doors for them to world-wide travel. When they arrived in New Smyrna Beach she allied with New Smyrna Travel and had prepared a trip to Washington, DC for the Artists’ Workshop when 9/11 shook the industry. Priscilla joined the Harmony Sound Waves barbershop chorus in 1999 singing baritone. She also was active with Little Theater and is a Life Member of National Sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma. She is predeceased by her husband of 60 years and also her pet Sheltie, Chappie McDuff – both in 2006. She leaves sister-in-law Mary Hall and many nieces, nephews and friends. Services will be private at her request. Living memorials may be made to Halifax Health Hospice 4220 S. Ridgewood Ave Edgewater FL 32141 or United Church of Christ 203 Washington St, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168.

    Priscilla was our dear neighbor from Bouchelle. What a terrific person and wonderful role model. She was always dressed to the nines, courteous, interested in conversing and ready to join in with all those enjoying life around her! Allen and Priscilla were not only quite successful in their careers, but they traveled all around the world. Priscilla's talent with both music and art was astounding. She loved to tickle the keys on the keyboard and fill the room with music. She made many good friends playing for the Senior group, as well. When her birthday comes around in a couple weeks, we will remember having her over to our home for tea to celebrate "her day." Priscilla touched many lives. Luckily our family - my mother (when she lived at Bouchelle), our children and us - had the great fortune to have there touch our lives with her vibrant, positive energy.

    Aunt Priscilla is a person that everyone needs in their family. She was a "classy" lady with a heart of gold. Charming, genuine, and devoted all describe this beautiful lady. She has joined Uncle Allen and Chappie in Heaven. Aunt Priscilla will be with us forever in our hearts and memories.

    i. TOO, HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF KNOWING PRISCILLA THROUGH OUR KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA AFFILIATION. WHAT A LADY THROUGH AND THROUGH, ALWAYS WITH A SMILE AND TWINKLE IN HER EYE.
    JOAN FENTON AND I WERE GIVEN OUR BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT
    WHEN VISITING HER 3 DAYS BEFORE SHE PASSED. WE READ BIBLE VERSES..(23RD PSALM), SANG "JESUS LOVES ME" AND "HE LIVES", AS WELL AS KAPPA SONGS....THOUGH PRISCILLA'S EYES REMAINED CLOSED, WE'RE CERTAIN SHE WAS AWARE OF OUR PRESENCE.
    I PLACED A SMALL CROSS MADE FROM AN OLIVE BRANCH IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE INTO PRISCILLA 'S HAND AND SHE RAISED IT TO HER FACE AND HUGGED IT. WHEN WE LEFT, SHE ACTUALLY MOUTHED AND SPOKE, :BYE". OUR BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT THIS YEAR !! REST IN PEACE DEAR SISTER.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Priscilla through our membership in the Greater Daytona Alumnae Association of Kappa Kappa Gamma. What a delightful Lady (with a capital L) she was! We will all miss her vibrant personality, her musical abilities, her artistic talent, her sweet, giving nature ... and the twinkle in her eye! For the past few years, her dear friend and sorority sister Joan Fenton has arranged a birthday celebration for Priscilla -- how we all enjoyed those events, Priscilla most of all! January 19, 2016, will be a sad day indeed. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

    I had the honor of meeting Priscilla through our national fraternity, Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter in Miami, Fl in the late 1960's. She was always so popular with all of us for who could resist how beautifully she treated everyone she met. She followed "the Golden Rule" and was an inspiration to all who were fortunate to know her. She and her husband were highly respected in both of their fields. Priscilla as an outstanding administrator of a lovely retirement center, Eastridge, and D. Allen as a financier. They even owned a popular restaurant on E. Cutler Road in Miami. Both individually and together were so outstanding and popular. Priscilla was also an excellent musician and played by ear. She also was president of Zonta International, an organization that helped women around the world. I am so so grateful that our paths crossed again when my husband and I moved to Daytona Beach Shores, for it was Priscilla who called me and introduced me to our local Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter. How fortunate to have Priscilla as a sorority sister and wonderful friend. My husband and I send our deepest sympathies to her family. She made such an extraordinarily positive impact on our lives.
