On January 5, 2019 Priscilla passed away unexpectedly at her home in the early morning hours from complications related to lung disease. She was born October 12, 1968 to Sam and Virginia Zaagman in Spokane, Washington as the youngest of 3 children. She attended St. Thomas More Elementary and Gonzaga Preparatory High School. Both had a significant influence on her life journey. Her deep faith shaped her life. Despite health issues beginning at an early age, Priscilla lived her life with simplicity, kindness, caring and compassion for others. She was quick to share what few material possessions she might have with anyone. She loved music and enjoyed playing piano, clarinet and flute whenever opportunity arose, often playing by ear and memory, though she could read music. Her music most often expressed her inner joy, freedom of spirit and her faith and trust in God despite the hurts, disappointments and challenges in her life. Priscilla loved her family deeply and was always interested in the lives of each member, especially her nieces and nephews. She always remembered family birthdays and holidays, looking forward to them and remembering each member with a small gift whenever possible. She actively participated with and felt part of her community “family” at Sunshine Terrace Assisted Living where she lived for the past 10 years of her life. Priscilla was preceded in death by her father, Sam Zaagman and sister Lori Zaagman-Bacon. She is survived by her mother Virginia Zaagman, her sister Andrea Zaagman- Al-Abdullah; many nieces, nephews and extended family members.
