Kelli Sue Mayer, age 55 of Lima, passed away on Easter Sunday April 12th, after a battle with cancer. Easter is a time when we are reminded that we will see each other again. She was born on June 10th 1964 to Charles and Dixie (Brandyberry) Mayer who preceded her in death, Charlie very recently.

She graduated from Shawnee High School & Apollo Career Center and went on to get a cosmetology degree in the state of Georgia in 1986. Kelli had been a member of Calvary United Methodist Church. She had lived in Georgia, Texas, Idaho, Arizona and Kentucky before returning to Lima 12 years ago to be with family and friends.

Survivors include brother Russ Mayer of Lima, sister Becky (Matt) Andros of Chandler, AZ, brother Nick Mayer of Lima, sister Luann (Steve) Crane, sister Lois Mayer, brother Steve Mayer, brother Scott (Kelley) Mayer and multiple aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was a kind, loving soul and will be missed by many. The family will have a celebration of Kelli’s life in May or June when the world is able to allow larger gatherings again.

Becky and I had the pleasure of enjoying a lot of life with kelli over the years, our trips to Mexico, Kelli living with us in AZ for awhile, building and decorating snowmen in OH over the holidays, and so much more. Kelli was always up for anything...even letting me put hot sauce on her tongue every time she used the English language incorrectly :). She always called me her favorite brother-in-law, but of course had to remind me...i was her only brother-in-law!!!! Kelli's smile and laugh were incredible and something i will never forget. I will miss the Kewpee gifts and pictures she would send me (she knew the naked baby freaked me out). Kelli is very loved and will be very very missed.
