Priscilla "Mama" A. Woolridge
September 7, 1944 ~ November 9, 2023 (age 79) 79 Years Old
We celebrate the life of Priscilla Agnes (Rowe) Woolridge, born September 7, 1944, who went on to join our heavenly Father on Thursday, November 9, 2023. She was our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, loved and known as Mama, Pro, and ProMom.
Most recently of Fort Walton Beach and Pensacola, Florida, Priscilla was born in Niagara Falls, New York and grew up in Sherrill, New York.
Having graduated from business college, Priscilla worked at OnBank, and ultimately opened her own successful business, Harmony Business Services.
She is survived by her two daughters, Wendy (Jay) Jacuk and Kimberly Ball, and her four nephews, Jeff (Renee), Jerry, Paul (Sharon), and Tom VanSlyke. She adored all of her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and grandnieces and grandnephews.
She loved being a mom, an aunt, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother. She adored all the children in her life.
She is predeceased by her beloved parents, Irene and Jack Eddy, and her beloved sister, Diane VanSlyke.
Priscilla made the world a better place with her listening ear, a kind and open heart, and care for those around her. Her great sense of humor endeared her to many people. Having never met a stranger, she brightened the world with her smile and gracious generosity. Anyone who came in contact with her came away feeling better because of this special woman.
Priscilla loved to travel, especially road trips, to see new sights, to explore, to learn new things, and to read. She was curious about the world and the people in it. She loved to meet new people. She had great wisdom in dealing with people, making her well-loved and a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur.
Priscilla loved to paint along with a wide variety of crafts, often giving her works as gifts or donating them to a charity to be sold.
We wish we could keep her forever, but she has gone on ahead to be with the angels and she said she'll be waiting for us there.
2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept my faith.
It should be said too that Mama did not want a funeral service. She wanted us to celebrate her life wherever we are and remember all the happy moments. She also wanted us to celebrate each of our lives for the precious moments they are. She wished us all to live in peace and love for one another.
