Catherine Elizabeth Mayer

Catherine Elizabeth Mayer, born on February 4, 1924, passed away peacefully at home at Hunters Crossing Place in Gainesville, FL on Sunday night, June 25th. In the weeks before her death, Catherine was comforted by the loving presence of her family, including her daughters Cathy and Ellen, her loving son-in-law, Alan and her grandchildren.
Catherine was a beautiful, kind and gentle soul. She was a truly sweet lady who spent her retirement years in the service of others. She sponsored many children from childhood to adulthood through her monthly contributions to World Vision. She was a longtime volunteer at Hospice Attic where she made many lasting friends. Catherine was a rare beauty but in her modesty she valued kindness and good character above all.
Catherine is survived by her daughters, Catherine Parlapiano (Alan) and Ellen Mee (Michael), and her grandchildren and their families; Adam Parlapiano and wife Corie, Jessica Parlapiano Arledge and husband Tom, Ross Hall, Eric Pickford and Brennan Pickford. She is also survived by her beloved great grandchildren, Gavin Arledge, Kili Pickford, and Brielle Pickford.
We wish to express our enormous gratitude to Catherine’s friend and longtime caregiver, Marilyn “Mel” Jordan, who stood by us through thick and thin, and the wonderful and supportive staff at Hunters Crossing Place and Haven Hospice.
Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Haven Hospice 4200 NW 90th Blvd. Gainesville, FL 32606 and/or World Vision at www.worldvison.org.
