Priscilla Elizabeth Nutting

CLINTON – Priscilla Elizabeth Nutting was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She passed away Sept. 27, 2021, at the age of 90, in her home of 47 years, in Clinton.

Priscilla was active in her church choir at the Brown Memorial United Methodist Church and especially enjoyed her Tuesday Crafting Group there.
