Priscilla Ann Smyth Krizan

December 20, 1930 - May 27, 2013

Priscilla, our beloved mother, nana, sister and aunt passed away Monday, May 27th at home surrounded by her family. She fought a long courageous 20 year battle with cancer and is now; free at last, like the butterflies she loved. She was born in Anaconda, Montana on December 20, 1930 and spent her youth there with her parents, brother and two sisters. Priscilla married the love of her life, Robert (Bob) Krizan on August 6, 1949. They lived in Anaconda until 1959 when they moved to Utah. She always called Montana her home. Besides butterflies, she loved her family, the cabin in Island Park, and the house in Mesquite. Her sweetheart, Bob, passed away on January 25th 2006. She will be missed by her daughters, Sandra (Bryan) Floto and Terri (Randy) Kelly, her granddaughter Marci (Nick) Berry and great grandchildren, Colby Johnson, Joshua Berry, Kassie, Kolton and Aspen Floto. Priscilla is also survived by her two sisters Cherie Massett and Jeanette (Del) Tiedemann of Anaconda, several nieces and nephews.

A memorial will be held in Anaconda, Montana at a later date where she will again rest beside her beloved husband.

The family would like to give special thanks to Dr. Kim Davis, Shellece Howell , CNS Hospice Care and Dr. Tricia Ferrin.

She was my Nana. She's done so much for me and I love her so so much. She will be missed greatly by all her family. I remember, on my birthday once I got old enough, she would give me $50. She was a kind woman all though she was grumpy when she was older. I will always love and remember her. The thing I regret is not having made her a card telling her how much I love her like I planned.

My Nana taught me so many things through my life. Most of all, she taught me how to be strong and to always fight for what you believe in. She fought for what she believed in, right up to the end of her life. I am so grateful to have had her as my grandmother. I am truly blessed to have so many amazing memories of her throughout my entire life. I will forever treasure them. She will be greatly missed, and always immensely loved. I can't wait to get to see her again, in heaven, standing with my Gramps, waiting for us to all be together again.

So many times in my life when I needed someone to listen and give me guidance, my aunt Priscilla was there for me. She was like my other mother when I lived in Utah. I know she is now at peace, up in heaven with loved ones who have gone before her. I will miss her, but I know I will see her again when it's my turn to step through that door. Love you.
