Priscilla Burgoyne Casey, 76, of Jaffrey, died peacefully on Thursday, December 21st, 2017 at the Pheasantwood Healthcare Center in Peterborough with her family by her side.
Priscilla was born on February 14th, 1941 in Peterborough, NH, daughter of the late Edward and Priscilla (Baird) Allord. She was a 1959 graduate of Conant High School where she had been a star basketball player. Priscilla had worked locally at Simplex, Millipore and D.D. Beans before retiring from Medefab in Jaffrey in 2015.
Priscilla was an avid Bingo player and loved her children and family dearly. In her earlier years, she enjoyed knitting mittens for all of her children and playing the organ. She liked taking long rides around New England, country music and her beloved Red Sox, and the only thing she really didn’t like, was shopping.
