    Our sincere sympathy on the passing of a very great lady. The Srigley family had a long time friendship with the Rowland family, since the days when Cliff and Priscilla farmed on Gladys Ridge – and delivered their grain to my father ( UGG ) at Aldersyde. The friendship continued in Calgary, bridge teas just to name a few. Priscilla was always a wonderful hostess – when we were married she held a shower for us. We have wonderful memories, her highheels, always dressed with the times. Again to her family God Bless and hold
    her memories close to your heart.
