Obituary for Priscilla J. (King) White

Priscilla J. (King)  White
Priscilla J. (King) White, 86 of Truro, MA, formerly of Acton, MA, passed away peacefully at her home on November 16, 2018.

Born in Waltham and raised in Lexington, she was the daughter of the late Chester S. King and Hortence J. (Rowe) King. Priscilla graduated from Lexington High School and soon after married the boy next door, the late Raymond L. White Jr., to whom she was happily married for over 64 years.

Priscilla was a flourishing entrepreneur, owning several businesses throughout her life. During her first business venture she opened the Knit Nook in 1967 with her dear friend of over 55 years, Maryellen Burns. While co-owning the business, Priscilla decided to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a hair dresser by going to cosmetology school at night. She effortlessly balanced the demands of her coursework with being a loving wife and raising her true pride and joy, her four children. She ultimately opened her most successful and enduring business, Perfect Touch Coiffeurs in West Concord, which she independently owned and operated for over 20 years.

Priscilla was well known throughout Acton and Truro due to her lively spirit, lifetime involvement in community activities, and her exceptional baking skills. In Acton, she and her husband Ray frequently hosted large social gatherings, bringing friends and family together to celebrate holidays and special events. After retiring to Truro in 1998, Priscilla volunteered her time to local organizations including Meals on Wheels and the Wellfleet Thrift Shop. Priscilla was known to always bring a bag or two of homemade sweet treats to any event or activity. She was often lovingly referred to as the “cookie lady." Her generosity, warm spirit, and charisma allowed her to make instant, lifelong friends wherever she went.

Priscilla will be lovingly remembered and missed by her many family members and numerous friends. She is survived by her four children: Stephen L. White and his wife Cecilia A. (von Jess) White of Littleton, MA, David S. White of Truro, MA, Paul D. White and his partner Patricia Studer of Townsend, MA, and Susan J. (White) Howard and her husband Donald R. Howard of Natick, MA; her two siblings: Eleanor DiIulis of Poquoson, VA and her brother Robert S. King and his wife Pat of Alexandria, VA; eight grandchildren: David Durkin of Littleton, MA, Ciara (White) Moustakis and her husband Kostas of Walpole, MA, Brett White of Great Barrington, MA, Stephanie White and her partner Rob Jobin of Lunenburg, MA, Elizabeth White of West Newton, MA, Timothy White of Shirley, MA, Amber Howard and her partner Tyler King of Pflugerville, TX, and Kristina (Howard) LeGrand and her husband Nicholas LeGrand of Natick, MA; and six beautiful great grandchildren: Dino, Nicholas, and Theodore Moustakis, Riley Ambrose, and Colton and Corbin King. Priscilla was also the mother of the late Jeffrey A. White.

Family and friends are invited to join the family at the Acton Funeral Home, 470 Massachusetts Avenue (Rt. 111), Acton, MA, for visiting hours on Monday, November 19th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM. The funeral service will be Tuesday, November 20th at 1:00 PM at the funeral home with Rev. Barbara Aiello presiding. Burial will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, Concord Road, Acton Center.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to either the VNA of Cape Cod, payable to CCHC Foundation, PO Box 370, Hyannis, MA 02601 or to The Friends of the Truro Council on Aging, PO Box 500, Truro, MA, 02666.
