Priscilla Richmond


Mrs. Priscilla (Ora) King Richmond, age 83, formerly of Latrobe, Pa., went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023.  She was active in Exmore Baptist Church and a member of the Eastern Shore Emmaus community. 

Priscilla was a prayer warrior, avid reader, writer of poetry, and had a special place in her heart for children. Throughout the course of her lifetime, she served the local community as a pastor’s wife, a teacher, and she held several positions within government, most recently as an on-site disaster specialist for FEMA, along with being a devoted mother and grandmother.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Arlean (Kennedy) King; her husband, the Rev. George E. Richmond in 1983; and eight brothers and sisters.

Priscilla is survived by three children, Dorcas, of Cape Charles, Daniel (Jeanette), of Boonsboro, Md., and LaDonna (Angela), of Sharpsburg, Md.  She is also survived by six grandchildren, Ian, Haisley, Avven, Kailey, Tahlia Shea, and Andrew; and nine brothers and sisters.

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, Dec. 8, at 3 p.m. at Exmore Baptist Church, 11624 Occohannock Neck Road, Exmore, VA.  Please, in lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to either Eastern Shore Emmaus, P.O.
