With unmendable broken hearts we regret to announce the passing of our beautiful, brilliant, loving sister Priscilla (Pre) Ubysz, 62, of New Britain. She passed away unexpectedly on February 9 at The Hospital of Central Connecticut. She was born on February 1, 1959 in New Britain to Alexander and Lucille (DePietro) Ubysz. Priscilla was employed by Pratt & Whitney as an Associate Director of Library and Information services for over 30 years. Priscilla achieved her Masters degree in Library Science from University of Hawaii and her Masters degree in Education from the University of Connecticut. She received numerous awards and accolades. Priscilla was a founding member of the Industrial Technical Information Managers group where she organized and hosted many meetings, as well as serving on several committees. Priscilla was a member of the American Library Association, The Connecticut Library Association, and on the board of The Connecticut Library Consortium, and the Special Library Association where she held various board positions since 1989. In addition to her love of learning, she enjoyed reading, traveling, trying new foods and bowling. She attended the Book Expo in New York annually as well as traveling to Maine to enjoy the beach and shopping with family. She bowled for many years on the Otis Bowling league. Priscilla also assisted with the annual St. Ann’s Passion Play for 35 years. Every year around Christmas, Priscilla sent out a highly coveted newsletter. Everyone couldn’t wait to find out if they made the cut. Priscilla was very patient and kind. No one could have been more loving or loved. She will be mourned by her devoted sister Suzanne Schufer of New Britain, her identical twin sister Patricia Ubysz; they were together since conception, never apart and true soul mates, beloved nephews Edward Schufer and wife Nicole of Plainville, Alexander Schufer of New Britain, a great niece and nephew, a special cousin Judi Bernacki and family, and many countless friends across the United States. She was predeceased by her loving parents Lucille and Alexander Ubysz. Priscilla’s life was stolen too soon after a hospitalization that resulted in Covid, where she unfortunately lost her battle. No words can describe the devastation of losing our beloved sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Calling Hours will be held at New Britain Memorial Funeral Home on Thursday, February 18, from 3pm to 7pm.

Pat, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your sister. I did not know that you were a twin! Having lost my own sister, I know how hard that is but to lose a twin must be ten times harder! I am sure you have many happy memories that will hopefully help you through these tough times. Please know you will definitely be in my prayers.

I extend my deepest condolences to Pre's family and friends. Her laughter, wry sense of humor and love of knowledge will be deeply missed by all she knew. I had the honor of working with Pre in my last 5 years at Pratt & Whitney. She was always the first to recognize others and brighten their day- organizing birthday celebrations, leading the employee recognition team (PRAISE awards) or just a cheery "hello" each morning. Her extensive knowlege of the history of Pratt & Whitney, and many of the other UTC divisions, was valued by so many. Pre was a wonderful soul and will be deeply missed.

I didn't know Pricilla personally, however I got to work with her on an Employee Engagement Team a few years ago. Priscilla was a pleasure to work with. My deepest condolences to the entire family.

I’m heartbroken about Pre’s passing. She was a good friend. I’ve been thinking a lot about Pre and our times together. In the Spring of 1980, a group of library science students went on a trip to DC to visit the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institute. While outside at the Smithsonian, Pre was taking a picture and inadvertently backed up to get a better photo and ended up literally in the garden. The moment deserved to be preserved - it’s one of my favorite photos of Pre. I can still hear her laugh when I look at this photograph.

My thoughts and prayers are with Pre and her family during this difficult time.
