Eva Mae Mayfield / May 14, 2018

On the evening of Sunday, March 6, 2016, Eva Mae Mayfield passed away at the Crozer Medical Center in Upland, Pa. On Feb. 1, 2016, she sustained critical injuries from an accident in her home. Her children and brother were by her side, as she peacefully made her transition.

She graduated from Mary M. Bethune High School in 1962. She met her former husband, Andrew A. Mayfield and moved to Philadelphia. She had a wonderful 28 year career at the United States Post Service (USPS), where she held various positions in a number of USPS locations throughout the Philadelphia area.

Eva’s greatest love by far was her family. Her children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews and her friends experienced unconditional love. One of her greatest joys was embodied in helping and supporting others and doing what she called “God’s Work.” She also shared her faith with her Yoruba brothers and sisters.

She is survived by her two children, Carl A. Mayfield (Pinkie) of Washington, DC and Rhonda E. Mayfield of Philadelphia, her grandchildren, Marvin L. Stewart Jr., Sydney A. Mayfield and Carl A. Mayfield II; her sisters, Ida Wimbush (James), Venus Lewis (Sam), Lemma Lewis, Rose Marie Lewis (Harold); and her brothers, Henry Lewis and Peter Mack Lewis; and a long host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

Eva was preceded in death by her parents, John Isaac Lewis and Kate (Stephens) Lewis; her former husband Andrew A. Mayfield; her brothers Doctor Clyde Lewis, William Isaac Lewis (Novella), James Lewis (Shirley), Wilson Lewis (Peggy), Billy (Belle), Joe Lewis (Brenda) and Walter Lewis.

One of our mother’s parting wishes was a lively party with Soul Music. She called it “Real Music.”

We will have memorial service and celebration of her life June 2 from 3-7 p.m. at 1405 Chesapeake Avenue, Annapolis, MD 21403.
