Aunt Priscilla was always fun to be with and made you smile.
I loved that she always called her mom "Al"instead of Alice or Mom.
She was so proud to be a Marine Veterin
I will miss her.

Condolences and prayers to her family.
Priscilla Gregory (as I remember her the most) was a very special lady; I remember spending the night at her house on the corner when I was a kid and I loved every minute of it.
I haven't seen her in a while but have never forgotten her friendly, loving way..

Ms. Priscilla was a joy to know and a true Marine. She will be greatly missed in NE Alabama Marine Corps League Detachment 1404. She was an inspiration. Semper Fi!
