Priscilla “Precy” Manalili Cruz
March 14, 1957 – October 9, 2018
Priscilla had a heart of gold that showed through wherever she went. The pride she took in her lifelong occupation as a Registered Nurse only highlighted this. In all her undertakings as a daughter, mother, and woman of God, Priscilla was exemplary. People were naturally drawn to her kindness, genuine warmth, and natural ability to make good times even better. Her greatest pride and joy was her family. Through the hardest of times, her faith remained the source of her strength. Priscilla's time on earth may have come to an end, but the hearts that she has touched and the love she has spread will remain.
Priscilla Manalili Cruz was born in Manila, Philippines March 14, 1957. As the second oldest of eight children, she shouldered many responsibilities. At an early age, she placed others before herself. Through faith, hard work, and dedication, she graduated with a Bachelor in Science of Nursing and moved to the United States. In Lufkin, Texas, she met and married the love of her life, Albert Cruz, and had three children.
