Jane S. Prince, 57, who worked at the Annandale campus of Northern Virginia Community College and who was active in service groups, died at Fairfax Hospital Tuesday following a stroke.

Mrs. Prince, the former Jane Constance Shilling, was born in Albany, N.Y., and grew up in Pelham, N.Y. She attended the College of William and Mary and in 1945 married Altus E. Prince, and Army officer. Over the years, the family lived at various military posts in the continential United States and also in Hawaii and in Germany.

They made their home in the Washington area in 1963. After his retirement from the Army, Col. Prince worked for Northern Virginia Community College. He died in 1971.

Mrs. Prince worked in the admissions office of the college from about 1974 until her death.

She was a member of the Parents Without Partners organization. She also was a volunteer worker with the Heart Fund, the American Cancer Society and the March of Dimes. She lived in Fairfax.

Survivors include a daughter, Carol P. McCrone of Carmel, Calif., and two sons, Lawrence E. and Stephen G., both of Fairfax.

The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Burke (Va.) Rescue Squad, or to the American Heart Association.
