March 13, 1934 - April 29, 2012

Lois I. (Swing) Prince, 78, Kokomo, passed away at 11:48 a.m. Sunday, April 29, 2012, at her home. Lois was born March 13, 1934, in Oakford, to Archie and Esta (Dickison) Swing. On Jan. 26, 1952, in Kokomo, she married Darrell Prince. He passed away Sept. 3, 2006.

After 32 years of service, she retired in 1988 from Delco Electronics, where she was a mechanical inspector. She was a member of the U.A.W. Local 292 and attended Fairview Baptist Church.

Lois enjoyed working in her garden, playing the one-arm bandits, traveling, collecting eclectic cookbooks, and most of all going to Bob Evans every Saturday with all her children and grandchildren, and any other family or friends who wanted to join. Lois enjoyed working with best friend, Pat DeWeese, Florida, and Lisa with Lisa’s Scissor Shack.

Surviving are her four daughters, Penny Carr, Kokomo, Pam Canard and companion Bob Jenkins, Delano, Tenn., Pat and Biff Hobson, Alvin, Texas, and Paula Hoosier and companion Garrett Friend, Frankfort; seven grandchildren, Doug Rybolt, Jeramy Rybolt, Angel Paquin, Jason Canard, Annette Dattilo, Gloria Tiberi and Shanika Hoosier; and 21 great-grandchildren.

Preceding her in death was her loving husband, Darrell Prince; sister, Betty Sargent; brother, David Swing; parents, Archie and Esta Swing; and two grandchildren, Abigail Burkhart (Rybolt) and Elizabeth Canard.

The family would like to send a special thanks to Hope, Laine, Lisa and Brent, all of Southern Care, and Dr. Hussain and Dr. Washington for making Lois comfortable. And also thank you to Jean Nearon and Tina Butler, who were always there and available at her bedside, along with Lois’ four daughters. Thank you also to Raymond Wilson who was a very close neighbor and family friend.

Services are 2 p.m. Saturday at Ellers Mortuary Webster Street Chapel, 3400 S. Webster St., with Chaplain Brent Kirby officiating. Burial will follow in Albright Cemetery. Visitation is 4 to 8 p.m. Friday at the mortuary.
