    Clarice and I just saw Prissy over Memorial Day Weekend and she was very upbeat. She was good friends with my Aunt Keke and was always there to assist when needed.

    She will be truly missed.

    Our prayers are with her and her family.

    Prissy was a wonderful person and a dear friend to my dad and our family. She will be missed and always in my thoughts when I’m in Ely and McGill. It won’t be the same.

    My thoughts and prayers to Patty, Peggy, Vicki and all her family.

    Prissy was a beloved patient who became a wonderful friend for 40 years When my ARMY unit was deploying to Germany for Desert Storm, She and Frenchy drove from McGill to Salt Lake to have
    dinner with me at Holy Cross Hospital. After 40 years it is painful to know I will never hear that
    beautiful voice saying, “Hi Dot”.
    My sympathy to her family, Dottie Mahan-Cooper, RN

    I absolutely loved talking to Prissy and Frenchy when they came into the bank. The love they shared for each other was obvious and we could talk for hours and anything. They were truly wonderful people! Prayers to their family.
