Priscilla Clark Obituary, Death – The death of Priscilla Clark has occurred. She was known as Silla by her devoted husband and close friends, and she spent many years volunteering as a 4-H leader. During that time, she instructed dozens of children in cooking, sewing, and leadership skills while also knitting and sewing clothes for her own family. For a number of years, she operated a day care center out of her house.
In addition to that, she took care of her mother and subsequently her elderly father-in-law in the house that she owned. Up until very close to the end of her life, Silla was an exceptional swimmer, an avid cross-country skier, and a fierce competitor in the blueberry picking sport. At one time in her life, she was intent on becoming a pilot and even enrolled in flight classes; however, she never finished them.
Priscilla assisted her husband in finishing his college studies, supported her children when they attended college, and then finally graduated from college herself. She attended Northern Essex College in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and earned her bachelor’s degree in nursing there in 1979. Traveling around the United States and Europe in an Elder Hostel was fun for Silla and Don. Due to their deep attachment to the land in East Kingston, they decided to establish a conservation easement on their 28-acre property. They were two of the first people to join the Pilgrim Church, first in Kingston and subsequently in Brentwood. During their time as members of the church, they served on committees and participated in the Friday discussion group.
