Priscilla "Pat" Ann Likely

January 19, 1942 — August 10, 2023


Priscilla Ann Likely, an esteemed Samples Manager at Hallmark for 28 years, until her retirement on April 4, 2006, passed away on August 10, 2023. Born in Kansas City, Kansas on January 19, 1942, Priscilla's life journey was one of dedication and love for her family and community in Independence, Missouri. As we bid farewell to this remarkable woman, it is with a heavy heart that we celebrate her legacy. 

Priscilla's career at Hallmark was marked by professionalism and a genuine passion for her work. Her commitment to excellence earned her the respect and admiration of her colleagues. Through her meticulous management of the samples department, Priscilla played an essential role in ensuring Hallmark's continued success. Her contributions will be remembered as a testament to her unwavering dedication. 

Outside of the workplace, Priscilla was a pillar of strength within her community. Her remarkable devotion to the VFW Auxiliary 1000 led to multiple appointments as its President. Priscilla's leadership skills shone brightly as she guided the organization in supporting veterans and their families through various initiatives and programs. Her tireless efforts brought comfort and joy to many lives. 

Priscilla's compassionate nature extended beyond her involvement with the VFW Auxiliary. She selflessly served as a Den Mother for Cub Scouts, providing guidance and encouragement to young boys striving to be tomorrow's leaders. The impact she made on these impressionable minds will forever be cherished. 

One of Priscilla's proudest accomplishments was raising and showing quarter horses during her children's formative years. With an incredible passion for these magnificent creatures, she nurtured a stable of 21 quarter horses at one point in time. In addition to her endeavors with quarter horses, Priscilla held a beautician's license, showcasing her versatility and love for all things creative. Her artistic touch left a lasting impression on those fortunate enough to have experienced her talents. 

Priscilla's warmth and devotion extended to her family and friends, who will undoubtedly miss her presence in their lives. She is survived by her adoring children: Laura (Steve) Pearl, Elizabeth "Beth" (Colin) Braley, and Donald "Gene" Likely. Priscilla's legacy continues through the lives of her beloved grandchildren: Jessica Williams, Vanessa Reynolds, Natalie White, Ashley Likely, Paige Likely, Chaise Likely, Kacie Likely. The abundance of love in Priscilla's life extended even further as she was blessed with 11 great-grandchildren. Priscilla was also blessed with the companionship of her siblings. Survived by Jay White, Eileen Taber, and Mary Pollick; their bond was an unbreakable testament to the strength of family ties. 

She now rejoins her loving husband, Robert Edward Likely, with whom she shared countless cherished moments. Priscilla was also the daughter of Raymond Earl White and Clara Bell (Branner) White, both of whom preceded her in death. 

In reflecting upon Priscilla Ann Likely's remarkable life journey, we are reminded of the incredible impact one individual can make in the lives of others. Her unwavering dedication to her career, community involvement, and family exemplified an extraordinary woman who lived life to its fullest. 

As we celebrate Priscilla's life and bid farewell to a remarkable soul whose light shall forever shine brightly in our hearts, may we find comfort in the knowledge that her legacy will continue through those she has touched. May she rest in eternal peace knowing that she made an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing her.
