Obituary for Priscilla Currier | Rochette Funeral Home & Cremation Services

Priscilla Currier, a longtime resident of Pelham, died November 14, 2023.

Her elementary education was in private schools in Lowell. She attended Notre Dame Academy in Tyngsboro, graduating in 1962. She then attended the University of New Hampshire, graduating in 1967 with a BA in business.

She is survived by her husband Philip Currier. They would have been married 53 years in December. After graduating from UNH she worked at her father’s beauty salon, Joseph’s Inc., in Lowell.

Children came along in 1972 and 1975. She said that one of her greatest joys was that she was able to be at home with the children during the early years and through elementary school. She was active in schools as a parent, served a couple of years as president of the Pelham PTA, and she and Phil were present at every school event involving the children.

When the children were in high school she returned to work as a part-time business manager at her husband’s law firm. She continued that until early 2023 when she was diagnosed with cancer.

She and her husband loved to travel and they were in Great Britain and the countries of western Europe many times, and also with visits to Panama and Hawaii, and many visits to Canada. They were able to take the children and grandchildren on two trips, one in 2018 and one in 2019; the first one to London and Paris; and the second one to Paris and Monet’s home in Givemy, and then through Austria and Italy with visits to Vienna, Venice, Florence, Rome, Pompei, and Naples.

She is survived by two children: Michelle and Philip, and his partner, Yi, and two grandchildren: Emma and Joseph. She is also survived by her siblings: Cynthia and her husband Herbert, Joseph and his wife Dawna, and Marie and her husband Michael. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews: Deborah, David, Rebecca, Barbara, Kim, James, Ayana and Yohance.

In addition to her family, she had several great loves. She loved birds, especially blue birds, cardinals and hummingbirds. She loved Monet, and visited his home in Giverny and saw his work in museums in Boston and Chicago and several in Europe. She loved the poetry and prose of the late N.H. poet, Donald Hall. And she loved the ocean, and over the years she and Phil made countless visits to coastal communities in Mass., N.H. and Maine.

In lieu of flowers, friends who wish may make donations to NH PBS or the Concord Community Music School, Concord, N .H.
