Mrs. Priscilla Harrelson Obituary


BURLINGTON- Mrs. Priscilla Liggins Jeffries Harrelson, 90, passed away on Tuesday, January 2, 2024 at Duke Medical Center.

Priscilla Liggins Jeffries Harrelson was born on September 19, 1933. She was raised in the Pleasant Grove Community. Her parents were the late William (Will) Liggins and Cassie Dean Martin Liggins. She attended McCray School which consisted of only one room and is now a historic site.  A life well lived of 90 years, as she departed this life on January 2, 2024.

Priscilla was a loyal employee of Glen Raven Mills. She worked tirelessly for over 30 years. Most of those years were spent working third shift. At an early age, she joined Jeffries Cross Baptist Church where she was a member of the Missionary Circle and sang in the choir. In her later years, she joined First Baptist Church on Apple Street where she was a faithful member and attended the 8 am service. As she moved to Cary, she cherished the calls, visits and cards from her church family.

She was a strong and independent woman who was known for speaking her mind. She was the same every time you saw her. She never met a stranger and was always in the know.  She enjoyed life and was often the center of attention at any gathering. In addition to loving the Lord, she also loved talking on the phone, eating sweets, dipping snuff, pictures and flowers. Her proudest moments were spending time with her girls and grandchildren.

 She leaves to cherish her memories with her daughters: Peggy Curry of Elon, NC; Alfreda (Lee) Poteat of Burlington, NC and Dean (Rev. Keith) Johnson of Cary, NC; a special cousin Alfreda Watkins; grandchildren: Michelle (Mark)Cohn, Micheal (Monique)Curry, Ronnie (Antionette) Enoch, Alfanza Enoch, Marcus (Audrey) Curry, Ernest (Sarah) Grant, and Patrick Johnson; twelve great grandchildren and seven great-great grandchildren; along with a host of nieces, cousins, caregivers and friends.

Priscilla now joins her parents; her spouses: Alfanza Jeffries, Elwood Miller and Robert Harrelson; daughter, Mae C. Grant, her brother, Joseph “Joe” Liggins; her

Nephew, Thelvis Liggins; her sister-in-law, Rosie Lee Liggins; her son-in-law, Ernest

Grant Sr.  “Well done my good and faithful servant”.

The family will receive guests at her residence, 517 Tranquil Sound Drive, Cary, NC and at 3339 Clyde Thompson Trail, Burlington, NC.

Public viewing will be held on Sunday, January 7, 2024 from 1 pm to 6 pm at the funeral home.
