It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Priscilla Brown of Calgary, AB, on Thursday, September 30, 2021 at the age of 55 years, with her husband Shane and her parents at her side. 

Priscilla was born in Vancouver, BC, on December 4, 1965. After she graduated from Mt. Sentinel School in South Slocan she eventually moved to Calgary and spent most of her adult life in Calgary. Priscilla expanded her education by attending Mount Royal University in Calgary and receiving a Degree in Interior Design. In the pursuit of her career, she has made many friends in Calgary who have expressed their sorrow and sadness in the loss of a personable and loving friend. Priscilla never forgot her roots and always made a point of returning to visit her family back home at every opportunity. She had especially a good old country Christmas back home with her family. One of the highlights of the back home Christmas visits was a family get together with her favorite Uncle and his family. Priscilla was outgoing and personable and would always offer a helping hand to anyone that needed help. She enjoyed visiting with her friends, camping, line dancing, and was involved in art and did many art projects. She also attended many Russian Prayer meetings in Calgary. 

Besides her loving husband Shane, Priscilla is survived by her parents, Paul and Violet (nee Voykin) Popoff; and brother Ken Popoff. She was predeceased by her younger brother Leonard on March 6, 1998. 

A Celebration of Life will be held in Calgary at a later date.
