Priscilla was known to be naturally loving, nurturing and giving.

Many have fond memories of her savvy side hustles, cooking, and loving spirit. She would always offer anyone a meal and advice.

Priscilla was an adoring member of Apostolic Ministries in New Haven CT led by Pastor Fred Brown. She lived in her faith in God and his word. She was a member of the baking committee and avidly assisted with whatever was needed for preparation of meals.
Priscilla was delighted to be the central figure in the lives of her family. Anyone who knew her knew she was a star in their eyes and that’s all that ever mattered to her. A maternal figure like her was rare; one that was generous, wise and kind. Nothing can ever replace her impact on the lives she touched. God knew calling her home would increase his wealth.
Her legacy will continue to thrive through her six daughters Cledyth Rawls, Pamela Moore (Titus), Renee Darden, Lydia Humbert (Michael), Kelly Green and Victoria Darden- Myers(Eric), beloved nephew Lewis Santos (Nichelle), six sisters Frances Henderson of New Haven CT, Victoria Henry (Alvin) and Vanessa Moore of Wilmington Delaware, Rosalind Rogers, Sharon Jones and Tina Rogers of New Haven CT, three brothers David Moore (Diane) of Waterbury CT and Mark Moore and Anthony Moore (Helen) of New Haven CT.
