Priscilla was born on September 3, 1966 to Gilbert Madrid and Helen (Norero) Madrid in Silver City, New Mexico.
She was the best wife and friend anyone could ask for. Priscilla was always ready and willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. She had a heart-of-gold and would do anything for her loved ones.
