BEST, Priscilla Crit McArthur A resident of Sebastopol, California for fifty years, passed away from congestive heart failure on Wednesday, April 4, 2018. Born to Eva M. (Hunter) and James C. McArthur on May 1, 1927 in Mason City, Iowa, she was the younger sister to Jim McArthur. In 1945, her family moved to San Antonio, Texas, where she would later receive her nursing education and her RN certification. She worked as a pediatric nurse for almost a decade. She met her husband through friends, while working at Mercy Children’s Hospital in Sacramento, and they married June 30, 1956 in Waltham, Massachusetts. Upon his retirement from the US Air Force in 1967, Priscilla’s family moved to Sebastopol and joined the Community Church of Sebastopol, where she was active with Women’s Fellowship. She was a loving mother to Robert C. (Bob) Best, Margaret (Peg) Best Roush, and son-in-law John Roush. Her husband, Lt Col Robert B. Best Jr. preceded her in death. Of her many accomplishments, Priscilla worked diligently to establish life benefits for Bob through Social Security and North Bay Regional Center, which supports services and opportunities for the disabled.
