Her obituary:

Donna L. Prisnock, of Jefferson Twp., Berks Co., and formerly of Perkasie, Pa., passed away Thursday, June 22, 2017, at Reading Hospital, West Reading, Pa. She was 58.

She was the wife of David L. Prisnock. The couple had their first date on December 14, 1984, and were joined in marriage on December 14, 2000.

Born in Philadelphia, Pa., she was the daughter of Nelson F. and Barbara (Collins) Hollenbach, of Perkasie. She was a 1977 graduate of Pennridge High School, Perkasie.

A Licensed Practical Nurse, Mrs. Prisnock was employed by Lincare, Reading, Pa., for many years until 2010. Previously, she worked for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pa.

An avid reader and gardener, she was particularly fond of animals and the outdoors. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Surviving, with her husband and parents, are a son, James G. Parsons and his wife, Victoria, of Arlington, Va.; a daughter, Faith P.
