Priscilla Baker Nicholas, age 83, of Raleigh, NC, passed away on May 11, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

She was an avid reader, whose children and grandchildren surpassed the ambitious characters in her books. Her family is wrapped in her love, by the many handmade quilts she made for each of them. Before Tom’s retirement they shared many travel adventures in the US and abroad.
