79 years young, passed in Yelm, Wash.
Priscilla Christine Enger was born to the proud parents of Leslie Earl and Opal Loretta Enger in Bellingham, Wash.
She graduated from Lewis and Clark High School in 1960, from Spokane, Wash., and Tacoma Community College in 1976, with an Associate in Technical Arts. She lived in Bellingham, Spokane, and Tacoma, Wash., and then moved to Covina, Calif., in the mid-to-late 1970’s. She eventually moved back to Washington State and settled in the Yelm area. Priscilla was an active, well loved and respected community member for over 40 years. She became a member of the Yelm United Methodist Church in 1992. She sang for many years in the church and several community choirs. Priscilla learned to play the piano and organ at an early age and had a great appreciation for all types of music.
She retired in June of 2004, from the State of Washington Department of Social and Health Services as an Accredited Medical Records Technician. After she retired, she spent time traveling, decorating her home, gardening, giving back and volunteering for numerous Yelm community organizations and the church; she held bible studies in her home, hosted book clubs, parties, and card games. Her all-time favorite, spending time with her family and friends.
She fully appreciated and shared her beautiful home where she resided for 30 years overlooking the Nisqually River with the abundance of God’s perfect landscape. It was the true essence of nature’s ebb and flow, life’s wonder, awe and beauty... Priscilla was outgoing with a huge smile, warm heart, and loved being around people. She was kind, sensitive, compassionate, and believer of Jesus Christ.
Priscilla is survived by her brother, Lyle Earl Enger (Elizabeth Enger); two nieces, Tiana Elizabeth and Kalela Christine, and their families; three children, Connie Sue Brown, Lezley Anne Brown-Kaady (Gerry Kaady), and Johnny Bryan Pericic (Lisa Pericic); and three grandchildren, Robin Opal Storm (Jordan Storm), Trevin Lee Tahoe Pericic, Lauren Linnea Pericic; and four great-grandchildren, Gabriel Dean, Jude Henry, Jayce Thomas Yeegin, and Beau Taylor Jordan. Priscilla will be greatly missed and our hearts are broken of her accidental passing; her legacy of kindness will be everlasting.
Celebration of life memorial service will be held June 3, 2021, at 1 p.m., at Yelm United Methodist Church in Yelm, Wash. Directly following, a private family memorial will be held at the rivers’ edge of the Nisqually River.
