BARBOURSVILLE, Va. — Priscilla Light Wilson, 70, Barboursville, died peacefully surrounded by her family and friends love on July 30, 2011, at the University of Virginia Medical Center.
Priscilla was born December 10, 1940 in Kingsport, Tennessee, and was the daughter of the late Ernest Paul Light and Etta Sue Onks Light.
She was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother. Priscilla, known for her smile, was a kind and gentle soul who touched many lives. She mentored many and found fulfillment in others’ successes. She was inspired by beauty and loved to walk through the woods on her farm, enjoy flowers, quilt beautiful colors and dig on her knees in her garden.
She was an avid reader and found peace in her spiritual studies and devotions. She was generous in sharing her spirit with all. It was her wisdom that was so dearly loved and while not sorry to go, she was sorry to leave so many friends, family, dreams and hopes.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Wilford P. “Bud” Light.
