A Celebration of Life will be held on June 5th, 2019 (4PM – 8 PM) at The Livery Stables Events Hall at 1104 Main Street, Pleasant View, TN 37146.

Mrs. Baldwin was born on January 25, 1940 in Bangor, Maine to the late Edmund and Mildred (Perry) LaPointe. She was an expert in the field of interior and exterior home design, which fed her passion for bringing beauty to everything around her. She was an avid gardener, and created stunning gardens in every home that she owned. Later in life, she became a hospice caregiver, because she felt that she could offer compassion and companionship to her friends near the end of their lives. She taught her children traditional Christian family values by example, and to look for beauty in the world.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by a son, Brien Dossiere; brothers, Perry and Dudley; sisters, Betty, Suzanne, and Elle.

She is survived by son, Jeff (Jane) Dossiere; daughter, Susanne (Jeff) Crow; sister, Judy Standley; and grandchildren, James, Jeffrey, Jennifer, Anthony, Jason, Jesse, and Evan.

floral squarePriscilla will be greatly missed by so many. She truly loved her long-time career as Nana, and always tried to help others less fortunate. The giving of gifts, even if they were sometimes a little wacky, was her love language. It was well-known that if you happened to mention that you needed something, anything, she would try to buy it for you. She was so sweet, and her heart was always to help others.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution to the Sycamore High School War Eagles Football Team in her memory, as she always wanted to support her children’s endeavors.
