Jeanne was born to Earl and Marie Price in Paris, Illinois on December 14, 1920. She grew up on Cherry Street in Holland and graduated from Holland High School in 1938. She graduated from Albion College in 1943 and was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority.
Jeanne married Larry Prince in 1943. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grand mother. Jeanne’s greatest joy was her family and her special love was felt by everyone.

After returning to Holland in 1980, they remained season ticket holders for 65 years and Jeanne was still attending MSU football games last fall.
