November 26, 1959 – July 23, 2022
On Saturday July 23, 2022 the sun sat on our beloved, Priscilla Ann King after a brief period of illness. Priscilla was born on November 26, 1959 to the late Elijah Alexander King, Sr. and Alice Ruth Chatman King, in Petersburg, Virginia. She was affectionately called, “PK”, “Ms. P”, “Cilla”, and “Ba”, a nickname given to her by her nephew DaRon.
Priscilla was baptized at Sharon Baptist Church, North Dinwiddie, Virginia. Priscilla graduated from Petersburg High School Class of 1979. Shortly after graduating high school Priscilla moved to Hackensack, New Jersey to live with her sister Helen to make a better living for herself. After the passing of her mother in 1990, Priscilla returned back home to her roots in Petersburg, Virginia. Once back home she settled in with her son Willis and her nephew Harvey in tow.
Priscilla worked in the warehouse industry for most of her adult life and would pick-up part-time jobs from time to time as nothing was too hard for her. Priscilla enjoyed yard work, cleaning her house and most of all cooking for her family. Priscilla was employed at Sabra Dipping Company for eleven years before her health began to decline. She was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan.
Priscilla was preceded in death by her parents, Elijah A. and Alice R. King; three sisters, Regina Lynn King Moore and Karen Hill; a brother, Robert; niece, Tameka R. King; a grandson, MiAngel Binns; grandparents, Deacon Robert F. Chatman, Sr. (Flossie), Alice Mitchell Chatman, and Lillian Syndor.

Coleman of the home and her caregiver, and Gloria “Linda” King both of Petersburg, Virginia, Phyllis J. Middlebrooks and Tanya King Jones both of South Chesterfield; one devoted brother, Elijah A.
