Priscilla Jarvis

February 27, 1936October 13, 2020

Priscilla F. D. Jarvis, 84, of South Windsor joined her loved ones with GOD on October 13, 2020. Daughter to the late Thomas and Mary Deane of Quincy, MA. Priscilla was truly loving, family-oriented sister, mother, aunt, grandmother and great grandmother. There was nothing more important than family. They were her life. She enjoyed playing games and cards with her family. She carried them in her car anywhere she went to visit. Playing board games became a tradition that passed down from her siblings right down the line to her grandchildren.

She never missed going to church for any reason. If she had plans for Sunday, she went Saturday and vice versa. She had great love for GOD. She retired from Tavelers Insurance Company in downtown Hartford, CT. She grew up on the beach and loved to frequent with her children. She kept her kids and grandkids busy with all types of activities throughout her life. Her love and presence will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.

She leaves behind her sisters and brothers: Barbara McGovern of South Weymount, MA, Maryellen Maglio of Plymouth, MA, Marilyn Sullivan of Kissimmee, FL, Carol Seltzer of Quincy, MA, Dorothy Belcher of Punta Gorda, FL/Mashpee, MA, Eddie Deane of Webster, MA, her children: Jean M. Jarvis of Newington, CT, Laura J. Muniz, and her husband Gregory Muniz of Crown Point, NY, George T. Jarvis Jr., and his wife Barbara Jarvis of Windsor, CT, John A. Jarvis of South Windsor, CT, Linda F. Jarvis of North Adams, MA, and Mary-Ann Jarvis of South Windsor CT; her grandchildren: Melissa Genovese, of East Hartford, CT, Joey Jarvis of Manchester, CT, Thomas Jarvis of North Adams, MA, John Jarvis Jr. and his wife Mechelle Jarvis, of Ellington, CT, Sarah Kasper and her husband Colin Kasper of Lebanon, CT, Noah Osterloh of South Windsor, CT, and Anthony Jarvis of South Windsor, CT; and her great-grandchildren: Courtney E. Connors of Glastonbury, CT, Marcus Vail Jr., of East Hartford, CT, and Emma Grace Kasper of Lebanon CT.

In addition to her parents, Priscilla is predeceased by her former husband, George Thomas Jarvis Sr., brothers and sister: Virginia Keane, Paul Deane, and Thomas Deane with GOD; and her grandson Steven G. A. Jarvis.

I remember going to Mrs. Jarvis's home with my Tillson siblings, getting a hug and being treated as if she were my Mom. She would offer something to eat. My Mother, Cora, and Pat became friends through their children. My condolensences to the Jarvis family. May you all have peace in knowing she is no longer suffering on this earth, she lived a good life, and she is now flying high with the angels. Peace to you all!🙏🏻

I am so sad to hear of your mom’s passing. She was a beautiful person. When, I first met your mom she was so welcoming and kind to me. She smiled a lot and was fun to be around. I will never forget playing cards with you and your mom, we all had so many laughs and such a good time together. Thank you for sharing her with me those times. I will cherish those memories. I know how much you loved your mom and how much you are going to miss her. My heart goes out to you and my prayers are with you. She is now at total peace with the Lord and will suffer no more. 🙏🙏
