Priscilla M. Rook, 81, of Crystal Lake, Ill., passed away on Thursday, March 14, 2013, in Crystal Lake.
Born on March 3, 1932 in Beverly, Mass., she was the daughter of Ernest and Maude (Trask) Sampson.
In her younger years, she delighted in riding her bike all around town and through Turnberry. Priscilla worked as a receptionist at Home State Bank where she quite often treated the staff to her delicious baked goods. Baking was one of her specialties.
She also loved the sea – her dad was a lighthouse keeper. She collected lighthouses and loved lobster! She was a very active member at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Crystal Lake and belonged to Mary Circle, where she had so many wonderful, longtime friendships.
Those left behind to cherish her memory are her children, George Edward Rook of Cary, Lisa (Douglas) MacKenzie of Crystal Lake, Chris (Mindy) Rook of Aurora, and Steve (Jessica) Rook of Barrington, RI; her grandchildren, Tyler, Tasha, and Riley MacKenzie, Joshua, Jarrod, Remy and Delaney Rook, and Sampson and Oliver Rook; her sister, Bessie Sampson Drolet; and many loving nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her former husband George Edward Rook, her parents, and her brother, Allison Sampson.
The memorial service will begin at 12 p.m., Saturday, April 6 at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, Crystal Lake with a luncheon in Fellowship Hall following the service.
