Erin Elizabeth Cain Prost – Homosassa, Fla.

Erin Elizabeth Cain Prost, 42, of Homosassa, Fla., was murdered on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at her home.

A native of Worcester, Mass., she was born April 13, 1975, to John and Gail (Boyer) Cain, one of three children. Erin grew up in Warwick Rhode Island, graduated from Rhode Island College and moved to Homosassa 11 years ago from North Attleboro, Mass. Her Florida professional working life held several facets.

Erin was known for her “million dollar smile”, sense of humor, and laugh. She enjoyed decorating, traveling, refinishing furniture, antiquing and spending lots of quality time with her family and friends. Erin loved Florida, being near the water, her house, and was extremely proud of her “farm.”

Erin was preceded in death by her mother, Gail (Boyer) Cain. She is survived by her son Zachary J. Cain, Homosassa, Fla.; her father John Cain and his wife, Huang Jing, Homosassa, Fla; sisters Jennifer Preston (husband Michael), Cumberland, R.I, and Christina Irons (partner Gregg Grafton), Warwick, R.I; nieces Hayley and Sydney Preston, Cumberland, R.I., and Ashley Irons, Warwick, R.I., and her ex-husband Andrej Prost.
