Frances Jeanette Enick, 95, of Mishawaka passed away Friday, December 27th in her residence at Waterford at Edison Lakes. She was born September 15, 1924 in Highland, IN to the late Anna (Ericks) and John Swart and lived in the South Bend area since 1954. On June 25, 1953 in Highland as Frances J.

Fran enjoyed being a mother and was immensely proud of her family. She played the piano, sang, sewed and prepared delicious meals. Her strong faith in God carried her through hardships. We are thankful for the Christian role model she was to her family and so many. She enjoyed watching sports, was a dedicated wife and was a most delightful mother. She was involved with Bible Study, taught Sunday and Bible School. Over the years she worked for Ford Motor Co., Norfolk Southern Rail Road, was an Avon Representative and worked for Meade Electric. She leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories and was simply the best, better than all the rest.

Burial will follow in Highland Cemetery. The family will receive friends in the church on Tuesday from noon until the time of the service.
