Olive “Mae” Prystai

1931 – 2017

It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of our mom, Mae Prystai, on May 10, 2017 at the age of 86, with her family by her side, at her home in the Piccadilly Care Home, Salmon Arm. Mae was born on May 8, 1931 in Atlin, British Columbia. She was predeceased by her husband George, infant daughter Katherine Anne, parents, Robert and Olive, and her brothers and sisters, John, Kathleen, Bill, Mavis, Nora, Donald, June, Shirley, Roy, Kenneth, and Joan. She will always be remembered in the hearts of her sister Bobbie of Whitehorse, her children, Kevin (Judy) of Sicamous, Janice (Jeff) of Sicamous, Chris (Patrick) of Edmonton, Peter of Langley, Cathy (Carey) of Abbotsford; grandchildren Travis (Crystal), Michael (Briana), Cole (Devon), Dane, Reid (Michelle), and great grandchildren Riley, Hudson and Noah. Mae will also be fondly remembered by all those who were extended family and friends and all those she touched with her thoughtful ways. There was nothing more important to Mae than family and she was an inspiration to us all.

Our family sincerely thank the staff at Park Place Piccadilly Care Home for the wonderful, loving care given to Mom from her first day there to her last. We would also like to thank Dr. Dirk Breugem for his loving care. Your kindness and compassion will always be remembered. A celebration of Mae’s life will be held on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 2:00 pm in the chapel at Fischer’s Funeral Services, Salmon Arm.
