Priscilla Ward

• Feb 9, 2019 at 12:00 AM

Mrs. Priscilla Ward, age 86, of Grand Haven passed away Thursday, February 7, 2019. She was born June 26, 1932, in Grand Haven to Daniel and Leora Sherwood.

On September 19, 1953, she married her best friend, Donald C Ward. They bought a forever home on the lake and lived out their fairytale romance. He preceded her in death on January 26, 2006.

Her grandkids and great-grandkids will always remember her as “water grandma” because of her love for spending quality time with them on the water. Priscilla was a very charismatic woman who portrayed the love of Jesus through her actions. She was an active member of The Family Bible Church in Muskegon. She found great joy in organizing activities and also enjoyed blessing friends and family with her beautiful painted ceramics.

She is survived by three grandchildren: Shannon, Jason and Tanya Ward; great-grandchildren: Maciah, Cy’ren, Karionna, Charlie and Gary Ward; and sister, Vera Preston. She was preceded in death by her two sons, Leslie and Gary Ward; and seven siblings.

She will be missed here on earth, but now she’s enjoying her new golden streets in Heaven.

Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, February 11, 2019, at The VanZantwick Chapel (620 Washington Ave.) with Pastor Jerry DePoy officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Interment will take place in Lakeshore Cemetery. Memorial contributions in memory of Priscilla may be given to the Alzheimer’s Association. Please sign the family’s online guestbook at www.sytsemafh.com.
