SIA Newsletter 1/6/15: The Passing of Priscilla Bergus Laurence
To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,
We regret to inform you of the death of Priscilla Bergus Laurence.
“Andy, Liz and Katie Laurence are sorry to let Priscilla’s friends know that after a long and brave struggle with cancer, with many more bright moments than difficult ones, and a beautiful last Christmas at home, our glorious Priscilla died ...peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday afternoon, December 27 at St Christopher's Hospice in Sydenham”.
The funeral will take place at Honor Oak Crematorium (Camberwell New Cemetery, Brenchley Gardens, SE23 3RD, London, UK) at 10.45 am on Saturday, January 10th.
It was Priscilla’s wish that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to St Christopher’s; you can do so using this link (also has Priscilla’s life story).
For the last several years, Priscilla continued her parents’ tradition of donating and presenting scholarship prizes to Strathmere resident children.
Here she is with the Pond and Furey boys at the August, 2014 SIA Meeting:
Strathmere will miss a great lady!
