Priscilla F. Andrews, 82, of Plymouth, MA (formerly of Holbrook, MA) entered Eternal Life on June 24, 2019 surrounded by loving family and close friends. Priscilla was born in Cohasset, MA to the late Neil and Dorothy (Marsh) Fraser on September 30, 1936. Priscilla was the former wife of Carlton Andrews Jr; devoted mother of Carlton III, Stephen, and Susan; beloved sister of Robert, Margaret, and John; cherished grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt of many.
Priscilla graduated from Cohasset, MA as a member of the National Honor Society. As an adult, she maintained a 4.0 GPA at Massasoit College in Brockton.
As a self-taught designer and artist, Priscilla's creations, artwork, and photographs were featured in many national magazines, such as McCall's Needlework and Crafts, and Lighthouse Digest. Four photographs were selected for the book, Boston's South Shore – A Photograph Portrait by Pilot Press and Twin Light Publishers. Priscilla illustrated the book Lighthouses and Museum Lightships in the First Coast Guard District 2000, written by Robert Fraser.
Beginning in 1958, Priscilla earned many prize ribbons from Marshfield Fair and Topsfield Fair for her original designs. These ribbons showed her versatility and talent by spanning numerous categories, such as sewing, applique, knitting, crochet, photography, and paintings in various mediums. Many of her oils and watercolors won awards in the Senior Citizens Artistic Interpretation of the State House Holiday Card contest, sponsored by Secretary of the Commonwealth, William Galvin. She was commissioned to paint one of her original designs on the donation barrel located at Mt Blue Spring, Wompatuck State Park. Her largest artwork was a wall mural painted on the exterior wall of the restaurant, Sandy's on the Beach, in Plymouth, MA. To share her love of painting, Priscilla instructed classes in watercolor at the Council on Aging in Plymouth and was a proud member of the Black and White Art Club of Plymouth.
Other interests included hiking, rock climbing, geocaching, letterboxing, and genealogy. Priscilla volunteered in the History Room at the Plymouth Library where she was voted Volunteer of the Month in February 2002 for composing several articles on historical events in Plymouth, updating the Vertical File, and assisting patrons with history and genealogy research.
