Priscilla was born in Street, MD on May 6, 1925, a daughter of the late William H. and Anna May (Forwood) Day. She was the loving, devoted wife of the late George M. Knight, Jr who had passed away in 1985. The last 60 years were spent on the Woodbine Holsteins Farm with her family living close by. She loved God, her family and the farm.

Priscilla’s memberships include: Farm Women Chapter of Airville, PA, Delta Senior Center, PA Holstein Association/Holstein Association USA and the York County Farm Bureau. She was a member of the Fawn United Methodist Church in Fawn Grove, PA over 50 years.

She was preceded in death by her brothers and their spouses; Robert Day and his wife, Jean and Winston Day and his wife, Margaret.

The family wants to extend their appreciation and gratitude to all the wonderful ladies who came into mom’s home and made her last seven years, as much as possible, like her independent years.

I always remember Aunt Priscilla as a very happy person...always with a smile on her face. The last time I saw Aunt Pricilla was at Uncle Dennis' funeral. I had the pleasure of sitting beside Aunt Pricilla at the reception and while we shared a meal Aunt Pricilla was a "Chatty Kathy"! She got the biggest kick out of the story I told her of the time I asked Uncle George what he was going to do with all the money his all-American cow was going to make for him. He replied, " I guess I'll farm till it's all " and then walked away.
I am very proud of what Uncle George and Aunt Pricilla did for the neighboring farmers.

Karen Calandrelle wrote a sympathy message

“To the family of Priscilla Knight I am hoping that, as I am, the wonderful memories I had with a smart and intelligent person help to soothe the loss of Priscilla. She was an exceptional person in many ways, but her devotion to her family was the most important thing in life to her. I weep and mourn my friend but I am so glad I had the chance to know her and to share some very good times with her. Karen Calandrelle”
