Priscilla was a vivacious gal who inspired everyone. She often sat east/west at the bridge club so she could get up and move around. "It keeps me young", she said to me not long ago. I admired her so much. She was quick-witted and kind-hearted. She will be missed by all at the Aurora Bridge Club.

Oh how we will all miss Priscilla! We awaited her arrival at bridge on Mondays and Friday with anticipation to see what she would be wearing. She never disappointed us....everything matched even down to the jewelry. She loved her Lord and was a wonderful example of a true Christian. Over the last few years we came to the realization that we had a few mutual friends from way back when! My Dad passed away almost 40 years ago and Priscilla knew him from her first Church. Rest In Peace dear lady we loved you.

I am so very sad to have to say goodbye. The last Ritchie. When I saw her it gave me a glimpse of my mother and I adored both of them. My deepest condolences to Wayne , Greg, Mark and their families. What a wonderful, smart, funny and classy lady. It did however make me a bit grumpy in that she always looked better than I did. She was so loved and will be missed.

I only knew Priscilla for a year from the Aurora Bridge Club but I came to appreciate her as a fierce competitor who behind a sweet smile, I knew was thinking, just try and beat me at this game ! She seemed not to take things too seriously except making the contract. And I will remember her dry sense of humour because it usually involved teasing or a joke or two at my expense.
I wish I could be more like her.

It was only a couple of weeks ago, I yelled at Prisilla to hurry up and get up the stairs at the bridge club and that she was holding everybody up. She knew who it was without turning around but turned around anyways and gave me that great demon like look. I could only give her shtick cause she could give it back to me.
When I first started going to the bridge club, my husband, would say, "Oh your all dressed up" and I said, "If Priscilla can dress up, so can I". I told people she reminded me of the queen, her hair was prefect, she wore great clothes and always the latest trend in jewellery. But the real queen like attire was that 1" 1/2" heal she always had on. What a classy lady and definitely fun too. Her presence will remain at the bridge club; she definitely added to the place!!!

Everyone will miss Priscilla's smile at the bridge tables wherever she played. A charming and wonderful lady who always made everyone feel a little better for having a chat with her. My sympathy to all of her family.

Priscilla will be missed. She was a devoted wife and companion of our father, Bob Hull for over 40 years. My thoughts and prayers are with Wayne, Greg and Mark, their wives and all 3 Generations of Priscilla's Family.

She made Dad happy. Thank you for being a part of that.

I always told Priscilla, that I wanted to be just like her, funny and feisty, always a ready smile and a lovely hug. Priscilla always looked as though she could be in Vogue, immaculately dressed and coiffed. I loved her spirit and the wicked twinkle in her eye, but most of all I admired her steadfast faith, she loved the Lord with all her heart, and was such a wonderful inspiration in our Senior’s group at church. I am sad that she has left us, but rejoice that she is with her Lord. Dear Priscilla, I will miss you.
To Priscilla’s family, I pray that God will comfort you as you grieve, and that your memories will sustain you in the weeks ahead.

The Aurora Bridge Club has lost a very precious member, Priscilla Hull. Priscilla had an infectious smile that captured you when you first met, but at the Bridge table she was a sharp, formidable opponent that, in her 96th year, showed she thoroughly enjoyed the game of Bridge. Her conduct was always pleasant and cheerful and you could often hear her say, “Yes, that’s four hundred for the good guys.” Thank you, Priscilla, you were a role model for us all.
