Obituary for Rochelle "Rocki" A. Mayr

Rochelle “Rocki” Ann Mayr, nee Smith, 80, of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, died on June 28, 2019, following a brief illness.  She was born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, on August 22, 1938, the first of four children of Pearl and Wilber Smith.  Rocki graduated from Fox Lake High School in 1956.  She graduated from St. Agnes School of Nursing in 1959 and obtained a Bachelor of Nursing Degree in 1983.   

Rocki married Bob Mayr on August 27, 1960, in Fox Lake, Wisconsin.  They made their home in Beaver Dam for many years. She and Bob were long-time members of St. Peter’s Catholic Church and were very active in the Knights of Columbus.  Rocki was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary for 65 years. 

Rocki had a long career in the nursing field, retiring as a correctional nurse from Fox Lake Correctional Institution.  There, she was instrumental in developing infection control measures when HIV/AIDS first became a major challenge.   

In 2014 Rocki moved to Fond du Lac, where she was a beloved member of a warm community of friends. She was a friend of Bill W., and served the AA community in several volunteer capacities. She was very social and enjoyed entertaining.  She loved to travel and made many trips abroad after she retired.  Rocki enjoyed playing cards, especially bridge, and loved to read.     

Rocki is survived by her brother, Lonnie (Linda) Smith; her sister, Carleen (Tom) Tigner; her children, Sue (Tim) Griffin, Todd (Brenda) Mayr, Craig (Katrina) Mayr and Jason (Lorelyn) Mayr; her grandchildren, Meghan Griffin, Aidan Mayr, Samantha Mayr, Jack Mayr, Josh Steger, and Faith (Jasen) Bullock; other relatives and many friends.
