MAPLETON – Priscilla Louise Condon, 86, passed away at her home Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, after a long illness. She was born April 5, 1927, in Lincoln, the daughter of Thomas and Addie Lillian (Beathem) McNamara.
She grew up in Lincoln and graduated from Mattanawcook Academy in 1946. She met and married Irving Louis Condon and moved to Mapleton where they farmed. Priscilla also worked at the Presque Isle Water District, Johnson Products and McCain Foods for many years. Priscilla was a very gifted seamstress. She made clothes for the family in early years and then expanded to making beautiful quilts and needle crafts that she enjoyed sharing with friends and family. She was a member of Mapleton, Castle Hill and Chapman Senior Citizens, Caribou Golden Age and the Castle Hill Grange.
Priscilla is survived by two daughters, Helen Condon and Judy Kennard and her husband, Wayne, all of Mapleton; two sisters-in-law, Vella Condon of Wade and Fern McDonald of Passadumkeag; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Irving; three brothers, Wilmont and Lawrence Beathem and Thomas McNamara; and five sisters, Madeline Fogg, Ember Beathem, Dorthy Beathem, Annie McDonald, and Georgianna Audibert. She also leaves behind her faithful and loving cat, Scamper; grandcat, Rusty; and two granddogs, Bear and Addie that remained at her side during her illness.
Because of her love of animals, those who wish to remember her in a special way may make donations to the Central Aroostook Humane Society, 24 Cross St., Presque Isle. The family would like to thank Ruth and Carol of Hospice of Aroostook for their kind and gentle care and support. In keeping with Priscilla’s wishes there will be no services.
