Priscilla Marie Nierling

With profound sadness we announce the passing of Priscilla Marie Nierling, our loving and devoted mother on October 5, 2020. She was a friend to all those whose lives she touched.

Priscilla was born on April 16, 1948 in Spring Gove, Minnesota to Malcom and Estella "Maria" Shefelbine. She married her high school sweetheart, David Anthony Nierling. They moved to Colorado to start their new lives together and to raise a family.

Priscilla was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as grandma. All whom loved her dearly will never forget her tenacity, wit, charm, grace and undying love and care for them.

She will be forever missed and is survived by her children: Dave Nierling, Lisa Talbot, Mike Nierling; daughter-in-laws Michelle Nierling and Ulli Nierling; Lisa's life partner: Gerard "Jessie" Madrid,; grandchildren: Adam Nierling, Jacob Talbot, Cade Nierling, Luke Nierling, Tim Nierling; great grandchildren, Ashley Valentine, Michael Nierling; sister Brandy Rice; and brother Ronnie Shelfelbine.

She was preceded in death by her husband David Nierling and granddaughter Ashley Nierling.
