GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (April 20, 2017)—HomeCare announces with great sadness that the wife of long-time industry advocate Sheldon Prial, Thelma Prial, passed away Monday, April 17. She is survived by Sheldon, her husband of 67 years, her children and grandchildren.

“Mom and Dad were truly inseparable in both their lives and their careers,” shared their children, Pam Stein and Jon Prial. “From the pharmacies they ran to the home health care dealer co-operative they established, they made every decision as a team and they never disagreed on anything. (according to Dad!)”

They are most proud about their wonderful family, daughter Pamela Stein and son Jonathan and his wife, Lisa and their grandchildren Daniel and wife Anne, Amanda and husband Matt, Sarah and fiancé Kevin, and Jeffrey and partner Angela.

Sheldon Prial turns 90 on May 5. He will continue to have access to his personal email,, for industry members who wish to reach out.
