Cleo Prince, affectionately known as “Sister,” was born in Hughes, Arkansas, to the late Andrew Sr. and Dora Rogers on June 30, 1927. Cleo was the second child born to this union. She accepted Christ at an early age through baptism serving as the mother of a church in Gary, IN.
Cleo moved to Indiana in her prime, taking on many jobs as a caretaker well into her eighties with vigor. Cleo was a combination of love, warmth, kindness, and laughter who met no strangers. Cleo was a mentally strong, inspired, God-fearing woman who lived to empower those in need taking pride in her role as the mother to many. The courage displayed throughout her life remains commendable with honors in her role as Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend, and dedication to God.
Cleo is preceded in death by her parents Andrew & Dora Rogers; sons Russell and Neal Tyler and grandson Eric Tyler.
Cleo leaves to cherish in her memory her son, Willie James Tyler of East Chicago; sisters Ethel Butler, Almedia Sanders and Vivian West both of East Chicago, In and Dora Dean of Hobart, Indiana, Daisey and Hadie and brother Andrew Rogers Jr. of Forrest City, Arkansas; special nephew Johnny Sanders of East Chicago, IN and a host of nieces and nephews.
