Obituary for Chrisanthe Prappas

Chrisanthe V. Prappas, a loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by loved ones on June 1, 2018.

She was born in Detroit, Michigan, 1933, to Anthony and Harriet Anagnos Vourax. Chrisanthe graduated from MacKenzie High School in 1951.

Chrisanthe was a brilliant business woman and incredible mother, friend, and mentor. Among many business accomplishments, she served as Vice President of The Genesis Group, and Owner and CEO of Specialized Residential Care. She retired at the age of 75 but continued to mentor business owners within the field of Head Injury Rehabilitation and Supportive Living. She is well known for her quick wit, memorable laugh, impeccable style, and indelible love for her three sons and family. Her most cherished legacy is that of her 6 grandchildren with whom she had a very close and loving relationship with. Her varied hobbies included golf, collecting fine art, classical music, and entertaining friends and family with beautiful parties. Chrisanthe was truly happiest when she was able to have all three of her “boys” in the same room sharing love, laughter, and cherished memories.

Both parents preceded her in death along with her best friend and brother Myron Vourax. She is survived by her three loving sons Paul (Carolee Colter) Prappas, James (Jennifer) Prappas; Dean (Kathleen) Prappas, sister Helen (Sylvan) Winocur; granddaughters Kristen and Alexandra; grandsons Brendan, Wyatt, Radek, and Theo; two nieces; two nephews and extended family members.
