Priscilla Carrow, hospital worker who died from Coronavirus

New York, NY — The coronavirus has caused the death of another beloved health worker, Priscilla Carrow from New York City. She was a Coordinating Manager at Elmhurst Hospital Center where so many other patients with COVID-19 have died.

New York State Senator Jessica Ramos announced the tragic news on her Twitter account on March 30th.

“Heartbroken to share my neighbor Priscilla Carrow passed away due to COVID-19. She was a crucial member of our community for 25+ years, proud @CWA1180 & @queensCB4 member & former coordinating manager at Elmhurst Hospital & staffer for my predecessor Jose Peralta. Rest in power,” Ramos wrote.

CWA Local 1180, a labor union in NYC where Carrow has been a member, also issued a statement on Facebook, saying that Carrow was a “passionate leader” and “extremely active in her community.”

“We lost one of God’s most precious children due to the coronavirus, a blessed soul who gave her all every day at work at Elmhurst – a hospital overloaded with the coronavirus — to make sure others were taken care of,” said CWA Local 1180 President Gloria Middleton. “I am beyond devastated and heartbroken as is the entire Local 1180 Executive Board. Priscilla always had a huge smile on her face and kind words to offer. Please keep her family in your prayers.”

Those who knew and loved Carrow also expressed their heartbreak over her unfortunate death.

“Condolences to Priscilla’s family she was a firecracker,” Celeste Spriggly commented on the Facebook post. “Always a ray of sunshine a great soul Im in such disbelief she always would light up a room and always made me laugh. An advocate for the underdog. I will miss you Priscilla. Sleep in peace. Xoxo”
