Another great Bing Crosby fan we lost - Priscilla Koernig. She was a dear friend and mentor of mine for many years.

Born to Frederick Richard Koernig JR. and Gertrude (Ross) Koernig in San Francisco on August 8, 1933, she was 6-years-old the family moved to San Mateo. She graduated from San Mateo High School in 1951, was a member of the Hillsdale Methodist Church in San Mateo. She worked her entire career at Bank of America.

She loved animals and had many cats and dogs during her life. She also loved to travel abroad as well as in the states, especially to Hawaii to see Don Ho. She was a huge fan of Bing Crosby and at one time was a president of his fan club from 1971 to 1980.

She was also a pianist and her parents brought a baby grand piano which sat in her living room until she moved to Clearlake. She lived in her San Mateo family home until she moved to Brookdale Assisted Living Home in Clearlake to be by family. She brought her dog Daisy to live with her. 

Priscilla is survived by her cousins, Mary Cordell Stiehr (Larry), Thomas Cordell (Linda), William Cordell, and Frederick Cordell (Linda); many other cousins; and many friends, Joyce and Brian, Fritzi, and Jesse and Marsha. Dear Priscilla died on June 29, 2016. Priscilla will be interred at Skylawn Memorial Cemetery in San Mateo on Saturday July 9, 2016, at 12 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to your favorite animal shelter or Hospice Services of Lake County. Arrangements under the care of Jones and Lewis CLMC Lower Lake, CA...
