February 7, 1966 - December 9, 2021
Priscilla Pursell was a very beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. She passed away suddenly on December 9, 2021 at UAB Hospital after unexpected medical complications. Priscilla was born February 7, 1966 and spent a majority of her life in Asbury, AL, where she lived at the time of her death. She is survived by her children, Sabrina Foster and son in law Scottie, Selena Foster, and Chris Foster-Lloyd and son in law Josh; grandchildren Aliddia and Madison Black, and Cole and Zane Foster; mother Betty Pettit; brother Matthew Pettit and sister in law Carrie, sister Audra Helton and brother in law Mark, and sister Krissie Bell; Aunt Ruby Taylor; close friends Rita Oaks and Joan King; fur babies Cujo, Peanut, Blue, and Molly; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Priscilla was a dedicated employee of Mueller for 20 years. She was well liked and fondly remembered by her coworkers and supervisors, and will be missed by everyone she worked with. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Priscilla knew her to be intelligent, independent, funny, giving, selfless, stubborn, and above all fiercely dedicated to her loved ones and fur babies. Her doctors and nurses all remarked on her incredible strength and bravery. She was passionate about animals and traveling. She particularly had a soft spot for abused, abandoned, and neglected animals, and rescued many over her lifetime. She was devoted in caring for them, nursing them back to health, and showing them love and kindness. Over the last decade and a half Priscilla spent a lot of time traveling and visited family and friends in other states. She loved planning special trips with her grandchildren and special niece, Mahlana. She made sure to tailor the trips and experiences to their individual personalities, and loved spending one on one time with each of them. She was also excited to plan a special trip with her mother and take a trip out of the country with her sons Chris and Josh. There is no way to adequately summarize a person like Priscilla and the life she lived in just a few short paragraphs. Her memory will stay with her friends and family far beyond her lifetime. The person she was, what she taught us, her example, and the love, support, and encouragement she gave had a profound impact and have changed the lives of everyone she knew and loved forever.
