Eunice Mayer Sammartino, age 86, of Clintonville (formerly Marion) was welcomed into the portals of Heaven and into the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, on Monday, May 21, 2018 at Pine Manor Health Care Center, Embarrass.
Eunice was born on May 7, 1932 in Milwaukee to John and Augusta (Brunke) Mayer. She blessed and mentored thousands of young people as a parochial, public school, and a college level educator in Providence, RI, Boston, MA, and throughout Wisconsin. Eunice used her superb musical talent in many churches as an organist, pianist, and choir director, besides taught many students as a private music teacher. She was a favorite Sunday school teacher, Bible study leader, member of Ladies Aide groups, and was a member of TOPS Chapter WI-1003 in Clintonville. Eunice enjoyed the noon meals and fellowship at the Clintonville and Marion Senior Centers in her later years.

She is further survived by grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends. Eunice is preceded in death by her loving parents, a brother John Mayer Jr., aunts, uncles, and other cousins.
