>From Brian Miller:

Dear federation friends and family:

 

It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of Priscilla
McKinley, a former chapter member of the NFB Potomac chapter, and the
Virginia affiliate.  Priscilla passed away the night of December 11.

She died quietly in her sleep, at home, with people who loved her.

She would never confess her age, so neither will I.

 

Priscilla was a long time federationist, joining the NFB in 1996.  She was a
two-time national scholarship winner.  She earned her doctorate from the
University of Iowa in 2007, and has a number of publications to her credit.

 

She is survived by her son, John, who lives in the northern Virginia area.

 

Information about funeral arrangements and memorial services will follow
once they are finalized.

 

Yours,

 

Brian Miller
