Alyce Caroline Mayo Obituary
January 7, 1931 - March 7, 2016 Alyce was born in Long Island City and spent her early years on the East Coast. She graduated from Syracuse University where she met her husband, actor Peter Falk. As a young woman, Alyce lived and worked in New York City as an illustrative artist and fabric designer, where she created one of the first Waverly designs. In the early 1960's, Alyce and Peter moved to Los Angeles. They had two daughters, Jacqueline and Catherine. While raising her family, Alyce pursued many endeavors which fulfilled her artistic calling. She enjoyed painting, decoupage, interior design, sewing, needlework, and music. After obtaining a Master's degree in music, Alyce became a well-regarded piano teacher in the area and developed a wealth of students. In her later years Alyce continued to live a productive and fulfilling life that included many friends and special relationships. Traveling to Europe and cruising with good friends was her joy. She loved to take daily walks, participated in the SAGES (a senior group for the arts at All Saints' Church in Beverly Hills) and enjoyed time with her beloved dogs. She was an avid gardener and enjoyed spending time outside in nature. Alyce was a loving woman, and dedicated herself to the people in her life. She could always be counted on and was a generous, loyal and loving friend. Daughter of the late Edward and Alice Mayo and sister of the late Jacquelyn Mayo, she is survived by her daughters, Jacqueline Falk of Los Angeles and Catherine Falk-Rothchild of San Marino, California; son-in-law Maynard Rothchild; two grandchildren, Logan and Liam Rothchild; a sister Edwina Downs of Pennington, New Jersey, and former husband Harry Derleth. A memorial service will be held at Pierce Brother's Westwood Village Memorial Park, 1218 Glendon Ave., Los Angeles, Ca. 90024 on March 29, 2016 2:00 PM with The Reverend Stephen Huber officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to "All Saints' BH SAGES" and sent to All Saints' Parish, 504 N. Camden Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.
