Obituary — Mae Annie (White) Pringle

Memorial services took place July 31 for Mae Annie (White) Pringle, who died peacefully in her sleep July 28 at the home of her granddaughter in Concord, Calif. She was 97.

Born Nov. 5, 1905, in Winter County, Ala., she moved to Southern California in 1942. She relocated to Oakland, Calif., in 1944, and later resided at Santa Rosa, Calif. She moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1996, where she made her home with her son, Vern Lee, until just before she died. She had been employed by the Southern Pacific Railroad before her retirement. She was a member of South Lake Tahoe Senior Citizens, Inc., and was an avid bowler. She began bowling in 1965 at Oakland, Calif., at the age of 59. The oldest of 80 members of the South Lake Tahoe Seniors League, she bowled for the Travelodge team. Her highest game, 199, as well as her highest series of 572, were both rolled at Santa Rosa Bowl, Santa Rosa. In 1970 she captured the High Game Handicap of 258 at Santa Rosa and in the 1998-99 season at Tahoe Bowl she won the Season High Handicap Series, 722, in the South Tahoe Seniors League. She has been an inspiration to all she knew.

She is survived by sons, Vern Lee of South Lake Tahoe, and Wallace Lee of Yerington, Nev.; grandchildren, Jackie Eklund, Randy Lee, Mary Anne Dunham, Brian Lee, Tara Lee and Benji Lee; and 10 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents and 12 brothers and sisters.

The family would like to express sincere thanks to Hospice for the loving care she received.
