PRINE, Robinette (Williams) Age 97, recently of Byron Center, MI, and long-time resident of Xenia, Ohio, was ushered into the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Friday, May 2, 2014. She was born January 22, 1917, to James Orr and (Anna) Mabel Williams in Tranquility, Ohio. She was a graduate of Cedarville College and is part of the "Heritage Alumni." She was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years Lawrence (Larry) E. Prine in 1996. She is survived by her daughter Kathy (David, Sr.) Fath of Grandville, MI; her grandsons David "Kelly" (Sherri) Fath, Jr., of Bratislava, Slovakia, and Kevin (Heather) Fath of Smithville, OH; and four great-grandchildren, Justin, Josh, Carter, and Taryn Fath, all of Smithville, OH; and eleven nephews and nieces. Robby will be remembered for her sweet, gracious, gentle spirit, quick wit and sense of humor, and her love of animals, wildlife and nature. She was an elementary school teacher in both Adams County and Beavercreek school systems before she began helping Larry when his business grew as a builder and developer in Beavercreek. She was a long-time active member of 1st United Presbyterian Church which became Memorial United Presbyterian Church in Xenia, Ohio, before she moved to Michigan in 2010. She taught Sunday School, served as church treasurer, and was active in the ladies' groups. For several years Robby volunteered at Greene Memorial Hospital and worked in the gift shop.
