A memorial service was held Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. at Trinity Presbyterian Church, with a reception following.
She was born June 14, 1944, the daughter of the late Judge Steve and Virginia Latham.
She leaves behind her loving husband of 46 years, Pat Jackson; her adoring daughters, Jenny and Annie; her sons-in-law, Eric Bromley of Piedmont, Calif., and Dixon Hory of Mobile, Ala.; her grandchildren, Charlie, Louise and Virginia Bromley and Patrick Hory; her sister, Julie Greenwood of Houston; and all her extended family and dear friends. Prissy grew up in Texas and graduated from the University of Texas with a bachelor of arts degree in English. She became an officer in the U.S. Navy after college, hoping to see the world, but she ended up in Georgia.
Although her Navy adventures did not take her far, she did meet a handsome aviator named Pat, who soon became her husband. Pat and Prissy lived in Georgia, Tennessee and Orlando, Fla., before finding their home in Pensacola, Fla., in 1982.
She made so many things look effortless: cooking, decorating, entertaining, traveling the world, helping others and making people smile and feel loved. For the last 20 years, she could be found most days at her store, Galleria Lamps and Shades. At her store, she loved spending time with her friends who worked with her, chatting with friends and strangers who would come to the store and sharing her impeccable taste with people to help them find beautiful things for their homes. She had a way of making everything beautiful. She closed her store last year to spend more time with her grandchildren, who loved their “Coco” so dearly.
Prissy was an amazing, inspirational and loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. She was so very special to so many people and our hearts are heavy, knowing she will not be around to light up a room with her beautiful smile and laughter. Her generosity had no end. Prissy was always there when her family and friends needed her. She was a gift to all who knew her. She will be missed more than words can express.
Her family requests that memorials be made to Trinity Presbyterian Church, 3400 Bayou Blvd., Pensacola, FL 32503; or to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.
