CAMDEN — Priscilla Kelley Sadler, 90, peacefully passed away at the Sussman House in Rockport, Maine on June 22, 2022.

At an early age Priscilla excelled in athletics. Living in New York City after college, she developed a love for opera. She left the city on weekends to become a very competent skier, often in Vermont. Her love of travel was confirmed after earning a leave of absence from her work as a lab technician at the Cornell Medical School New York Hospital. She traveled to Stockholm and worked at the Karolinska Hospital for 1 ½ years. She returned to her previous position at the New York Hospital and worked there until she retired.

Her family and her many friends and acquaintances not only remember her as being very warm and generous but also for her delicious blueberry pies she perfected when visiting family in Camden, Maine.

She was predeceased by her husband, John McIntosh Sadler, and her father and mother, Stillman Francis Kelley, II and Grace Kathryn Norris Kelley, and a sister, Meta Kelley. She leaves her sister Edith K. Kelley Manns of Camden, Maine, and her brother, Stillman Randolph Kelley of Deland, Fla. and Camden, Maine; her stepchildren John McIntosh Sadler, Jr., Vivienne Sadler Spauls, and Dana Sadler Mott, and the grandchildren and descendants of both Kelley and Sadler families.

Priscilla, also known as Cil or P.K., loved and was beloved by her family, including many nieces, nephews and acquaintances. She was 12 and Jenna Hardy Speer was 13 when they met and they remained best friends for 78 years. She had long and caring friendships with Mark and Lotten Olsen of Sudbury, Massachusetts, Catharina and Bob Weaver of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Lakshmi Khemani of New Providence, New Jersey, Martin Heckleman, and Edith Daniels Tucker.

More than anything in her last few months, she enjoyed walking down to a point on Lake Megunticook, sharing its beauty with friends, family and caregivers. She greeted them always with warm and sparkling smiles, reminding them when they were leaving that she would “see you tomorrow.”

Priscilla will be buried beside her family in the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Sussman House Volunteer Fund, 40 Anchor Drive, Rockport, Maine, 04856, or the Megunticook Watershed Association, P.O. Box 443, Camden, Maine, 04843.
