FARMINGTON — Priscilla Quirrion, 91, of Wilton died early Saturday morning, at Orchard Park Nursing Care Center in Farmington. She was born in Fayette on Feb. 23, 1927, a daughter of Herbert and Eva Keene Dyke and attended Jay schools. On Nov. 10, 1962, she married Phil Quirrion in Chesterville. He died on her birthday, Feb. 23, 2002.

Mrs. Quirrion worked at Norwock Shoe and later at G.H. Bass and Co. in Wilton, as well as at W.S. Wells & Son Canning Co. in Wilton. She was an avid Red Sox fan as well as being a fan of the Chicago Cubs. She also enjoyed roller derby and ice hockey — especially the fights. She will be remembered as being an animal lover, doing word puzzles, crocheting and being happiest when she had a large and bountiful garden.

She is survived by her sons Brian Chick and Brent Quirrion, both of Jay; a daughter, Robin Carrow, and her husband, Eric, of Vassalboro; sisters Marcella Farrington of Wilton, Ellen Coolidge of Jay and Christine Flynn of British Columbia.
