On August 27, 1952, Alonzo and Eula Conley delivered a bright eyed baby girl, Priscilla Lynn Conley, who lived and grew up on the southside of Columbus. In the same neighborhood, she attended Fulton Elementary School, and later, Mohawk Junior-Senior High School.
Priscilla later went on to give her life to Christ while at Renaissance Missionary Arch, under the direction of her late uncle, Pastor George Lake. She loved the Lord and taught Sunday School while she was a member there. She later attended Holy Temple Inc. for many years, the former church of her grandmother, Eula Carroll, and other family members. Her grandchildren were taught about the Lord and learned how to sing there. She was a strong woman of God and she was what you called a “praying grandmother.”
Priscilla was funny, witty, curious, strong, and intelligent. She could be strict and stern, but only to help; she had a heart of gold. She loved to laugh and was a movie buff and decorator. She also made masks during Covid to help family members, while making a few bucks. She taught herself how to sew and she enjoyed every minute of it. She loved plants and had a green thumb that was out of this world.
Priscilla was preceded in death by her mother, Eula; father, Alonzo Conley; brother, Gerald; sister, Alonzetta Conley; son, John Conley; and grandson, Van Darling.
She leaves to cherish her memories: her children, Eula “Tiny,” Ian, Ethan, and Tia; grandchildren; adopted grandchildren; great-grandchildren; sisters, Diane McCullough, Mary Johnson, and Mona Conley; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Priscilla had two aunts that she loved so very much: her aunts, Joyce Johnson and Eileen Vinson, whom she was raised by. They were like a mother to her all her life. She was taught so much love and wisdom. She will also be dearly missed by her special daughters, Gabby, Angel, and Shania, and special sons, Patrick, June, and Dave. She will greatly be missed by all she loved and all who were privileged to love and know her
