Monticello Bird Club mourns the death of one of its charter members, Priscilla Ann Dawson Kingston, on November 25, 2016. Priscilla is survived by her husband, Ron; and together they have been active supporters of birding for many years, with a particular focus on bluebirds. Priscilla was cochair of the North American Bluebird Society Speakers’ Bureau for 18 years. She and Ron were awarded the Virginia Bluebird Society Heritage Award in 2015.
Priscilla was Hospitality Chair for Monticello Bird Club for many years. She was a gentle soul, and we mourn her passing.
Priscilla’s obituary can be found on the Hill and Wood Funeral Home website (http://www.hillandwood.com/home/index.cfm/obituaries/view/fh_id/10702/id/4026083). Monticello Bird Club has established the Priscilla Kingston Memorial Fund as a tribute to Priscilla’s dedication to birding and to the natural world.
