Obituary for Priscilla Adela Gordillo

Ms. Priscilla Gordillo, (Ms. G. to her students), passed on February 10th 2020. Priscilla was 78 years old. Priscilla was born in Guatemala on March 29th 1941. One of five children to Emilio and Olivia Gordillo. After finishing her education in Guatemala she moved to Los Angeles in 1961 where she met and later married her firs husband Luis. They had two sons, Lou and Frank.

After their divorce she moved briefly to Guatemala, but soon returned to Burbank, CA with her sons. Priscilla was not one to let life hold her down and she wanted her sons to live in the Unted States. She was a conservative patriot and believed in the American Dream for everyone.

In 1978 the family moved to Lancaster, CA., and after several odd jobs from Eastside Turkey Farm to the Bianchi Leather Factory in Valencia, she found her true calling. Priscilla began working at Tropico Elementary school in Rosamond as an ESL aide teaching English to the children of the migrant workers of the area. This is what she loved to do and touched the lives of so many kids and their families. Students of hers went on to higher education and would call her years later to thank her for the inspiration and support.

Priscilla finished her career with AVUSD working as a substitute aide. She would brave the weather, wind and drive allo over the valley to help with the kids.

Priscilla did not drink or smoke, but loved to socialize and go dancing at the Antelope Valley Inn. She love her immaculate cars, visiting family and friends in Guatemala and getaways to Rosarito. She found peace in her faith and attended mass at Sacred Heart Church. Priscilla is survived by her two sons, Lou and Frank Ruschman, her surviving siblings, Enrique, Sergio, and Lucrecia and a great many cousins, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
