PRISCILLA ADELAIDE SEIBEL (published on June 26, 2010)



PRISCILLA ADELAIDE SEIBEL (nee LINEKER) Peacefully on June 19, 2010, Priscilla, age 77, passed on after a brief illness. She is fondly remembered as a very kind, wise and generous person by her son Jim and daughter Cheryl, her brothers Terry, Bob and Al, several nieces and nephews, as well as many dear friends. Priscilla was predeceased by her husband Bob and son Tom. Priscilla was born in Edmonton, Alberta on August 18, 1932, the fifth child (of nine) of Alfred and Priscilla Lineker. She grew up in Edmonton, leaving school at age 16 to work full time. While employed at the Royal Bank of Canada, she met Bob Seibel. They were married in 1953 and Tom was born a few years later. After several years in Calgary, the family moved to Winnipeg in 1967. Priscilla was a very respected and well-liked long-time employee at the Royal Bank. She retired in 1987. She and Bob looked forward to their winters in San Jacinto, California, and Priscilla continued visiting their home there after Bob passed away in 1999. Priscilla was very independent and enjoyed helping other people in the seniors' community where she lived. She always liked looking after other people, and was fond of animals as well, especially cats and dogs. When she was younger Priscilla enjoyed tap and ballroom dancing, playing piano and singing in several choirs, including Sweet Adelines. She also enjoyed bowling, curling, going on camping trips, travelling throughout Canada and the United States, as well as listening to many styles of music. Among her favourite vocalists are Robert Goulet, Bing Crosby and Barbara Streisand. In her later years she enjoyed crocheting, sewing, reading novels, watching old movies, travelling to visit relatives in other provinces and playing bingo and card games with friends and family. The family wishes to thank Priscilla's neighbour Diane Pinuta and the staff at the Health Sciences Centre for the help they provided for Priscilla and for the support they have given us in dealing with her unexpected passing. As was her nature, at the end she was more concerned with her family's well-being than her own. Priscilla is dearly loved and missed by her family, friends and neighbours in Canada and down south. A small gathering was held in her memory at Bardal Funeral Home on June 22. Thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts, words and actions, and for being a part of Priscilla's life.
