Services will be held Tuesday, Dec. 23, for Phyllis Jean Lewis Prible, 82, a longtime resident of Malvern and a world traveler who died at home Friday, Nov. 14, of complications from liver disease.
Born in Huntington, Ind., to Roscoe R. and Mildred Lewis, Mrs. Prible moved to Malvern in 1967 and remained there for 47 years. Her life was centered on her family.
She and husband, Glen V. Prible, were four days short of celebrating their 64th anniversary. They had never spent an anniversary apart, said her daughter Susan P. Warmuth.
"Glen always took the day off to celebrate their love, and they cherished each moment together," Warmuth said.
The Pribles traveled to six continents and all 50 states. Mrs. Prible loved the adventure, exploring cultures and making memories she could bring home and share.
"She was a world-class lady, with love, compassion, and true awe of everything around her. She never ceased to appreciate what she saw, and learned and experienced the world around her. But she was a humble woman, never [taking for granted] her place in the world," her daughter said.
In addition to her husband and daughter, Mrs. Prible is survived by sons Steven L., Kitt I., and Kim E.; four grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; three brothers; and a sister. Another brother died earlier.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 23, at the D'Anjolell Memorial Home, 392 Lancaster Ave., Frazer. Visitation starts at 10 a.m. Burial will be private.
Donations can be made to the Clare & Edith Prible Scholarship fund, c/o Boehmer United Methodist Church, 3467 S. 600 West, Liberty Center, Ind. 46766.
