Obituary for Nora Pryor
Nora was born to Francisco and Gregoria (Villena) Yambao on April 1, 1946 in Santa Rosa Laguna, Philippines. She passed away February 10, 2017 in Pensacola, FL at the age of 70. Nora graduated from Santa Rosa High School and attended Far Eastern University, both in the Philippines. She and her children traveled to many places but made Pensacola, Florida their home and raised her children there. She made a career with NEX and DFAS and retired in 2009. She enjoyed tending to her rose bushes and plants, bowling, movie going, shopping and visiting the casinos. She was proud of her family and loved spending time with them more than anything as she selflessly devoted herself to them. The love she had for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was unconditional. There was not a heart untouched by her kindness. She was the most beautiful person with the purest heart. She will be missed dearly. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, siblings; Susan Y. Oville, Asuncion Y. Pendon, Sonia Y. Barton, Francisco V. Yambao, Salome Y. Principe, Claro V. Yambao, Gavino V. Yambao; son-in-law, James “Jimmy” Johns and brother-in-law, “Jim” James Barton. She is survived by her beloved children, Maria Johns, Lealana (Lanny) Gonsoulin and Fransis “Lee” Pryor; her grandchildren Tabitha “Niki” Davis, Bridgette Culver, Raven Gonsoulin and Dylan Pryor; great grandchildren; Maria, Grayson and Stevonnie; siblings Jose V. Yambao, Maria Rita Y. Wee; numerous nieces and nephews from the Philippines. Visitation will be 11am with services to follow at 12pm at the Faith Chapel Funeral Home in Pensacola, FL.
