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.
Friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Mae may do so to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC, Box 277, Station M, Kamloops, BC, V2C 5K6 or Piccadilly Care Home, 821 10th Ave. SW, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 1T2.


  1. It is with a smile on my face that I remember Mae and all of her antics at The Victorian, she and Alice were a team and the stories of their shenanigans are going in my book forsure.
    Mae is someone I will always remember with great fondness. Tracy

  2. Condolences to Kevin, Janice, Christine, Peter and Kathy and their families on the loss of their mother , grandmother and great grandmother. Have memories of both Uncle George and Aunty Mae stopping in Edmonton to visit and our times in Yorkton. Also when they moved to Vernon and lunch in Salmon Arm two years ago where I had a nice visit. Thoughts and prayers to all.
