In Memory of Agnes R. Pricaro

Agnes R. Priscaro
2/22/1935 – 12/8/2019

The Housing Authority of the City of Erie (HACE) Board of Commissioners and staff would like to offer its condolences to the family of long time HACE Board Member Agnes Priscaro. Agnes served as a HACE Board Member from 1980 until 2016. In 2004 John E. Horan and the HACE Board of Commissioners honored Agnes by naming the former Westbrook Housing Development, the Agnes Priscaro Apartments.

Agnes was an advocate for those in need and a champion for children and the less fortunate who were served by the Housing Authority of the City of Erie. In addition to her duties as Chairwomen for the HACE Board of Commissioners Agnes created and led the Kiwanis Youth Choir made up of children living in the John E. Horan Garden Apartments. Every Christmas was a little brighter when Agnes and her youth choir would come to Schmid Towers and sing Christmas Carols for the HACE staff and the residents at Schmid Towers.

Agnes made a real difference in the lives of the residents of the Housing Authority for over 30 years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family!
