Nevart (Nuv) Macer Obituary
April 21, 1921 - October 15, 2017 Nevart Akullian Macer, or "Nuv" as she was affectionately known, was born on April 21,1921 in Albany, New York, to an Armenian immigrant family. Her parents were both born in Southern Turkey. Nuv attended St. Agnes Preparatory School for Girls in Albany, New York, and William Smith College in Geneva, New York, graduating with a degree in sociology. Following college, she worked as a social worker for the New York State Department of Social Services in adoption placement, for two years. She met and married the love of her life, George Armen Macer (née Mahseregian), a medical doctor serving as a captain in the Air Force. For Nuv, it was love at first sight, as George first stood at her doorstep. They married in Albany, New York, on June 24, 1945. Following their marriage, they moved to California and settled in George's hometown, Pasadena, CA. Nuv and George had four children. Nuv's greatest joy and sense of pride came from her family. She adored George and was a devoted mother and homemaker. She was known for her warmth, her outgoing personality, her sense of style, her exemplary cooking and entertaining, and her eagerness to help everyone. In addition to her unsurpassed attentiveness to her family, Nuv was active in service organizations, including the Altadena Guild of the Huntington Memorial Hospital, the American Cancer Society, the Pacific Coast Obstetrical and Gynecological Society, the Los Angeles OB-GYN Assembly, and Cilicia Congregational Church. Nuv passed in her Altadena home of 67 years, with her children at her bedside on October 15, 2017. She was laid to rest in a heartfelt graveside ceremony attended by her immediate family on October 28, 2017 at Mountain View Cemetery in Altadena, CA. She is survived by her daughter Lynne Macer Rhodes, her son George Macer Jr. (Bud), her son James Macer, her daughter Jemela Macer, and her 9 grandchildren. She is a deep loss to the Macer family. No further services are planned. Donations may be made in her name to the Altadena Guild of the Huntington Memorial Hospital (http://www.altadenaguild.org/donate.html).
