Obituary

AUBURN Priscilla Washburn passed away on February 4th, 2019. For eighty-seven years, Priscilla touched others with her warm-heartedness, compassion and wit.
Esther “Priscilla” was born on April 10, 1931 in Orrington, Maine, to dairy farmers Athelbert and Elizabeth Glidden Crook.
After graduating from Bangor High School Priscilla, a skillful seamstress, won awards for her handmade suits and apparel. She worked for Bangor Hydro Electric and Viking Sewing Center before starting her own tailoring business. During a brief stint as an Avon Lady in 1967, she met Walter Washburn and they spent the rest of their lives together. They loved to dance, socialize and stay active in the Orrington community. Priscilla was a lifetime member of the East Orrington Congregational Church, EOCC Ladies Aide and Millwee Chapter Order of the Eastern Star.
Known for her cackling laugh, Priscilla brightened every room. She had a knack for making others feel special. She is remembered for her sense of style, bright colors and fondness for fashion. She was lively, fun, and always up for new adventures and friendships. She loved planting flowers, baking pies, supporting her neighbors, and being creative with a needle and thread. She adored boating on the Penobscot and Frenchman Bays with her late husband Walter.
In addition to her parents and husband Walter, Priscilla was predeceased by her brother Jack Crook, his wife Josephine and brother-in-law Joseph Renaud.
Priscilla will be forever cherished by her family, including her daughters Debra Wedge and husband Mike of Hampden, Cindy Swift and husband Rick of Auburn, and April Herbold and husband Seth of Eliot; sister Betty Renaud of Brewer; grandchildren Dean Romprey and wife Jennifer of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Keith Romprey and wife Darcie of Hampden, and Henry Herbold and Natalie Herbold, both of Eliot; two great-grandsons, Gabriel and Derick; and several nieces and nephews.
Above all Priscilla loved people, and she will be dearly missed by her many friends and neighbors. Her family expresses gratitude to the devoted staff at the Ellen Leach Memorial Home and Schooner Estates Senior Living Community.
A memorial service will be held at East Orrington Congregation Church in Orrington, Maine, on Saturday, February 9th at 10am. Reception to follow. Donations may be made in Priscilla’s honor to the EOCC Music Fund, 38 Johnson Mill Road, Orrington, ME 04474. Condolences may be shared at www.brookingssmith.com.

I love you, Grammie! You will forever be in my heart and always be apart of who I am. Our times at Hancock Point before school started was always very special, even though Keith and I didn't get to spend a lot of time at the "Cottage" you wanted to make sure we had an opportunity to share in the magic of Hancock Point! The weekends we would spend with you and Grampy were amazing! We would spend time outside helping Grampy and then we would come in and help with supper or make dessert with you. I remember sitting at the kitchen table and just chatting about life over a cup of coffee. You were so very special to me, Grammie and I will always remember helping you with making a "special" quilt for one of your "customers" and at Christmas time...I was that "customer"! That quilt lays next to my recliner in the living room like Grampy's blanket did. I cherish the fact that you were able to see me get married to Jenni through the marvels of technology via FaceTime. What a special moment that I just could not share without you being apart of that day! Grammie, I love you! Grammie, remember when we would sing together as the closing hymn would start and if it was an upbeat hymn, our hymnals would bounce in our hands to the rhythm of the song. Standing on the Promises was on that I recall we had the best time with...save me spot for singing those hymns.
