Barbara Pearl Mayernick

April 12, 1933 — March 21, 2021

Barbara Pearl Mayernick went to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 21, 2021. She died peacefully at home, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Altoona—a daughter of Bartley and Elva (Gesser) Lindemer. On July 24, 1954, she married her sweetheart, Robert John Mayernick, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Juniata. She is survived by her husband of 66 years; a son, Jeffrey, of Altoona and a daughter, Michele McNutt (Ford), of State College. Grandchildren: Michael and Cheyenne Mayernick; Sarah, Patrick, and Nicholas McNutt. Surviving are her siblings Beverly Seese, Cora Lanzendorfer, Walter Lindemer, Janet Baker, Doris Lindemer, and William Lindemer. She was preceded in death by sisters Bonnie Lindemer and Vara Boyles. After graduating from Altoona Area High School in 1951, she worked her entire career as a folder at Butterick and retired in 1995. Barbara was a member of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus Catholic Church where she served as a Eucharistic Minister and an usher. She was also a member of the Welcome Committee and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. In 2005, she was a recipient of the Prince Gallitzin Cross Award, which recognizes Catholics who exemplify in their discipleship the evangelizing characteristics of the Reverend Priest and Prince, Servant of God Demetrius Augustine Gallitzin. Shopping for her family, cooking, and baking, especially cookies and pumpkin rolls, brought her great joy, along with decorating her home for various holidays and hosting family get-togethers. She also loved spending time with her grandchildren and was a very special “Gram Gram.” Barbara loved God, her family, and her church family. She was very generous with her time and talents and was always willing to help anyone in need. She was truly a servant of God. The family would like to thank all her caregivers from Integrity Home Care and the UPMC hospice nurses who provided her with compassionate and loving care. There will be a private viewing for family, but all are welcome to a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus Catholic Church, Altoona. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery. In memory of Barbara, contributions may be made to the “Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) St. Therese Conference” at 2301 5th Street, Altoona, PA, 16601. Arrangements are by Mauk & Yates Funeral Home, Inc.
