EAST DENNIS, MASS. — WATERS – Priscilla Stanton, East Dennis, Mass., died peacefully July 12, 2014, surrounded by her loved ones. Daughter of Rev. John Stanton and Helen MacMurray Stanton, Priscilla grew up in Johnstown. She was a graduate of Grove City College and a lifelong learner. She married Joseph Frazier Waters, whom she met sledding when they were 10 years old. Joe’s career took them first to Adrian, Mich., and then to Woodbridge, Conn., where they lived for many years. Priscilla devoted herself to her family and to her volunteer work including the church, library and Yale New Haven Hospital. After Joe’s death in 1991, Priscilla moved to her family’s home in East Dennis and immediately became involved in volunteerism. She was active at Dennis Union Church and was a member of the choir for many years. She also worked tirelessly on behalf of the Jacob Sears Memorial Library, 1736 Josiah Dennis Manse Museum and East Dennis Ladies’ Aid Society. She enjoyed many trips and adventures with her daughter, Betsy, and her family. Her grace, energy, indomitable good spirit and most of all her famous smile will be missed. Priscilla’s family would like to thank her wonderful aides, the Dennis Senior Center and the staff of Epoch of Brewster for the skilled, compassionate and loving care they provided. Survived by daughter, Betsy (John) Harrison; daughter, Susan Waters; granddaughters, Courtney (Sam) New and Jessica Harrison; grandson, Justin Waters; siblings, Helen Seward and John (Marcy) Stanton; and numerous nieces and nephews. Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, July 17, at Dennis Union Church, 713 Main St., Dennis, Mass.
