Memory Eternal

In loving memory of Priscilla Anastasia East, beloved daughter of Mark and Ocie Whitaker and treasured sister of Christine, Martin, and John. Priscilla was a devoted mother to her son, Nikolaus, a highly decorated member of the Army, a warm and generous person and friend, and a dear sister to all of us at Holy Protection Orthodox Mission. She departed on 2 February, 2017, and will be deeply missed by all who knew her. May her memory be Eternal and her dwelling the Courts of the Righteous!

Below is a link to her obituary from the local newspaper:
