In the 1970's Priscilla played a lead role in establishing the South Creek Volunteer Ambulance Association that provided members with EMT training and helped save numerous lives in a rural area previously not serviced with immediate medical care. In the following years, Priscilla held different positions within the Salvation Army in Elmira where she managed one of the first safety shelters for victims of domestic violence in New York State and later served as a Counselor to those with substance use disorders. For over a decade Priscilla belonged to the Hidy Ochiai School of Karate where she earned a second-degree Black Belt in Washin-Ryu Karate. She will be missed.
