Ignatius E. Prisby

Ignatius E. Prisby, 88, husband of the late Lucille (Marcorelle) Prisby, of 31 Town Farm Road, Ipswich, died early Monday February 21, 2011 in the Rosewood Nursing and Rehab Center, Peabody following a brief illness.

Born in Ipswich January 19, 1923, he was the son of the late Rudolph and Mary (Zagula) Przybysz. He was educated in local public schools, graduating from Ipswich High School with the class of 1942. He enlisted in the US Army in 1943 and served in the European Theater, landing at Normandy shortly following D-Day. Returning to Ipswich after his honorable discharge, he continued his education, graduating from the Franklin Institute in Boston. He was employed for several years at Sylvania in Ipswich before going to work at General Electric in Lynn as a turbine inspecting engineer, and retired following thirty three-years of employment with GE.

Married in 1954 in St Stanislaus Church in Ipswich, the Prisbys made their home on Town Farm Road where they raised their family. He enjoyed gardening, playing golf and spending time with his family. Retirement gave him more time to work in his garden, where he happily tended his own crossbred roses. He was a longtime member of the Sacred Heart Church in Ipswich, a lifetime member of the PLAV Post 92, and the Kosciusko Club in Ipswich.

He is survived by his children Marie Harrington and her husband Robert, David Prisby and his wife Judy Sedgewick, Alan Prisby and Joan Prisby, all of Ipswich, and Carol Carll and her husband Peter of Braintree, and his grandchildren, Robert Harrington III, Connor Prisby and Erica Prisby, all of Ipswich, Andrew Carll, Adam Carll and Cara Carll, all of Braintree, Carly Hippert of Manchester, NH and Shane Prisby of Milford, NH. He is also survived by his brother John Prisby of Ipswich, and sisters Valeria Carosella of Roslindale and Kathryn Zabelski and Elizabeth Eliopoulos of Ipswich, and many nieces and nephews. He was the brother of the late Frank Prisby, formerly of Amesbury, Ann Strungis of Jamaica Plain, and Walter Prisby and Frances LeClair of Ipswich.

His funeral services will be held Monday February 28, 8 am from the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High Street, Ipswich, followed by the celebration of a funeral Mass at 9 am in Our Lady of Hope Church, Pineswamp Road, Ipswich. Family and friends are respectfully welcomed. Interment with Military Honors will be in the Cowles Memorial Cemetery, Ipswich. Visiting hours are Sunday February 27 from 4 to 8 pm.
