With unmendable broken hearts we regret to announce the passing of our beautiful, brilliant, loving sister Priscilla (Pre) Ubysz, 62, of New Britain. She passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 9 at The Hospital of Central Connecticut. She was born on Feb. 1, 1959, in New Britain to Alexander and Lucille (DePietro) Ubysz.

Priscilla was employed by Pratt & Whitney as an Associate Director of Library and Information services for over 30 years. Priscilla achieved her Masters degree in Library Science from University of Hawaii and her Masters degree in Education from the University of Connecticut. She received numerous awards and accolades. Priscilla was a founding member of the Industrial Technical Information Managers group where she organized and hosted many meetings, as well as serving on several committees. Priscilla was a member of the American Library Association, The Connecticut Library Association, and on the board of The Connecticut Library Consortium, and the Special Library Association where she held various board positions since 1989.

In addition to her love of learning, she enjoyed reading, traveling, trying new foods and bowling. She attended the Book Expo in New York annually as well as traveling to Maine to enjoy the beach and shopping with family. She bowled for many years on the Otis Bowling league. Priscilla also assisted with the annual St. Ann’s Passion Play for 35 years. Every year around Christmas, Priscilla sent out a highly coveted newsletter. Everyone couldn’t wait to find out if they made the cut.

Priscilla was very patient and kind. No one could have been more loving or loved. She will be mourned by her devoted sister Suzanne Schufer of New Britain, her identical twin sister Patricia Ubysz; they were together since conception, never apart and true soul mates, beloved nephews Edward Schufer and wife Nicole of Plainville, Alexander Schufer of New Britain, a great niece and nephew, a special cousin Judi Bernacki and family, and many countless friends across the United States. She was predeceased by her loving parents Lucille and Alexander Ubysz. Priscilla’s life was stolen too soon after a hospitalization that resulted in Covid, where she unfortunately lost her battle. No words can describe the devastation of losing our beloved sister, aunt, cousin and friend.
