Barbara Hill Phillips Mayer passed away on Jan. 26 after a long illness. She was the beloved mother of Kate, Daniel and Beth Mayer, whose father, Wayne Mayer, died in 1987. She is also survived by her sisters Lee Stephenson (Greg), Nancy Phillips, Paula Phillips-Biliter (Fred) and Mary Phillips Davies (Wyn), as well as many nieces and nephews. Barbara was born in Evanston and attended Lincoln, Dewey, Nichols Middle School and ETHS. She worked as a health clerk in District 65 schools for 18 years.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. on March 7 in the chapel of the First Congregational Church of Evanston, 1445 Hinman Ave.

Ms. Mayer’s children have requested that those attending wear green – her favorite color– and dress in casual attire – as she would have wished.

Memorial donations may be made to The Alzheimer’s Association.
