Obituary for Tola Pearl Mayer

Tola Pearl Mayer, age 83 of Humboldt died July 20, 2020 at Colonial Acres Nursing Home in Humboldt. Pearl was born July 21, 1936 in Humboldt, the daughter of Oliver and Nora (Johnson) Stauffer. She grew up on a farm just south of Humboldt and attended school in Bern, KS. Pearl loved helping her dad out on the farm. No chore was a “chore” if she got to do it with her dad. She met and married Oren D. Mayer around 1960 and they were blessed with one son, Gene, who may have been the apple of everyone’s eye. Pearl worked in the clinic of Doctors Heim and Stappenbeck with her sister Pat Badberg. They had a lot of fun teasing each other. Next, she worked for Dr. Stripe in the clinic and the Humboldt Hospital where she assisted in surgery. Pearl was blessed to be in the room when her first grandson was born. She later worked at Colonial Acres Nursing Home. Pearl joined the Foster Grandparent Program when she lived in Waverly and she loved being able to help all of those kids. Her three grandsons were the light of her life, especially after the passing of her husband, Oren in 1990. There wasn’t an event she missed, if one or all of the boys were involved. Pearl was a kind and gentle woman. She would help anyone, at any time. She will be greatly missed. Survivors include her daughter in law, Deb Mayer; grandsons, Jason, Jaime and Kristopher; 4 great grandchildren; sister, Pat Badberg; many other relatives and friends. Pearl was preceded in death by her parents; husband; son; brothers, Henry, Stanley, Johnny, Robert and Bill; sisters, Ruth Anne and Emma Lou.
