LOGAN, Utah Vivian Prince Swapp, 78, passed away in Logan on Tuesday, Nov. 9, 1999, from complications resulting from a stroke.
Vivian was born Oct. 4, 1921, in St. George, Utah, to Joseph William Prince and Mary Isabelle Williams.
She received her early education in St. George, graduating from Dixie Junior College in 1942.
Vivian married her high school sweetheart, Bill Swapp, on Oct. 10, 1942, in the St. George LDS Temple. She traveled with Bill during World War II while he was in the Army Air Corps, then returned to St. George in 1945 where she worked for the telephone company. They moved to Logan in September of 1957 to finish their education at Utah State University. She graduated from Utah State in June 1961. She taught school at North Cache and Sky View until she retired in 1985.
Vivian accepted many callings in her church. At the time of her death, she was teaching in Relief Society and fulfilling her visiting teaching assignments. In 1986 Vivian and Bill were called to serve in the Arizona Phoenix mission for the LDS Church and served on the Navajo Indian Reservation.
Vivian served in various volunteer organizations. She enjoyed working with all those at the hospital and Meals on Wheels. She was compassionate and caring and enjoyed giving service to others. Her family and friends were her greatest joy.
She enjoyed traveling to many different places around the world and met many wonderful people. Vivian touched our lives in everything she did. Her example has inspired all of us. Survivors include her sister, Rolaine (Bevan) Nazer of Logan; a foster daughter, Francena (Ed) Sandoval of Farmington, N.M.; and three foster grandchildren.
Vivian was also fortunate in that she has very special nieces and nephews who are as close and caring as sons and daughters.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and a sister, Velva Covington. The family extends a heartfelt thanks to Dr. Cunningham, the great nurses who cared for her and to Krista for the kindness and compassion she showed us.
