Priscilla McGruder

On April 29, 2010, at 5:05 p.m., the windows of Heaven opened and Priscilla McGruder, a true Christian lady, accepted her invitation to come home. She escaped this life with her family and closet friends at her bedside rejoicing with her. The last words she spoke could not be understood by those standing around, but were heard by her Best Friend, Jesus.
She was born Oct. 25, 1948, in Modesto, Calif.

She leaves her family behind to follow her. Her husband and love of her life of 34 years, Carroll McGruder. Her adored children, Eric and his wife Michelle, Shawnee and her husband Tim, and Holly. Six doted on grandchildren, Prisda, Spencer, Taryn, Jacob, Harrison and Onyx - Who all thought their Nana made the sun rise.

Her siblings all stood vigil by her bed the hours before her homegoing. They are Janet Jones, Joy Haney, Beverly Davies, John McDonald, Mary Wilson, and Julie Short.

She was preceded in death by her parents Travis and Margaret McDonald. Her step-mother, Lois McDonald remains.

She had dozens of nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles that all felt like her favorite, because she made them feel that way.

She leaves behind countless friends and people who admire her for her talents and unsurpassed anointing. There will never be another woman like her. You count yourself blessed to have been touched by her in this short span of life.

Visitation will be from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday, May 4, 2010, at The First United Pentecostal Church in Kennett.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m., Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at The First United Pentecostal Church in Kennett with Revs. Kenneth Haney and Don Sheerin officiating.

Burial will follow in Memorial Gardens Cemetery at Kennett.

Memorials may be made to "Memorial Garden" at the First United Pentecostal Church.

McDaniel Funeral Service of Kennett is in charge of the arrangements.
