Hundreds gathered to pay tribute to Priscilla Payne Hurd at the Cathedral Church of the Nativity on Wyandotte Street in Bethlehem recently. Some remembered her service to the community. Others recalled her leadership.

The 650-seat church was nearly full of friends, family and others who came to celebrate the life of one of Lehigh Valley's most well-known philanthropists, who died last month.
