Priscilla E. (Boggs) Killian, a long time resident of Acton, passed away Tuesday, February 2, 2021. She was 87 years old. She was the beloved wife of John D. Killian to whom she was married for 64 years.

Mrs. Killian was born in Worcester in 1933 to the late George and Myrtle (Ridyard) Boggs. She was married to her husband John in 1957 and they settled in Acton where they raised their family. A longtime member of St. Matthews United Methodist Church, she spent many years singing with the choir. Mrs. Killian enjoyed time spent at the ocean, especially at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead where they spent many summer days. She was proud of her garden and loved to cook for family and friends. More than anything, she enjoyed time with her family, especially for a special occasion at the Wayside Inn. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends.

In addition to her husband John, Mrs. Killian is survived by her children Nancy Clark and her husband Bill of Westminster, David Killian of Framingham and Peter Killian and his wife Melanie of Oklahoma. She was the loving grandmother of Steven and Laura. She also leaves a brother George Boggs and his wife Jane of Worcester and a Brother-In-Law Al Manson of Stoughton. She was predeceased by her sisters Carolyn and Virginia.

Services for Mrs. Killian are private. In the spirit of the care she provided for so many years for her husband, the family encourages those who wish to make a donation in her memory to the American Heart Association 300 5th Ave., Waltham, MA 02451.

Priscilla was a friend of my mother since kindergarten in Worcester. She and Jack were my parents closest friends. Both were so helpful and supportive of my mom when our dad died in 2012. It is sad to hear of her passing and comforting to remember her smile and many kindnesses to all the Wilkinsons. Please give our deepest sympathy to Jack and all your family.

What a sweet, lovely lady. St. Matthew's won't be the same without her. I will so miss her smile, and her warmth.
