BENTLEY, CORALIE ANITA MAYER Coralie Anita May Bentley passed away peacefully on May 12, 2011 after a heroic battle with cancer. She was surrounded by loving family. Born in Philadelphia on October 29, 1929, the day of the stock market crash, she lived through a turbulent and exciting period of American history. In 1941 she lived with her parents in Manila, Philippines when it was bombed by the Japanese, and she lived for the next two years in the Santo Tomas internment camp. She married Frederick Mayer in 1949 and nurtured 8 children. She was a loving mother, successful real estate broker, a consummate bridge player, and dear friend to many residents in the Rancho Carlsbad community where she lived since 1983. Preceding her in death was her beloved daughter Dorothy Mayer, Fred Mayer her husband of 47 years, and Charles Bentley, her husband of 7 years. Her surviving children are Marita Mayer, Theresa Boatwright, Rick Mayer, Christopher Mayer, Barbara Mayer Stillions, Michael Mayer, and Angela Enos. She is also survived by her brother Charles Noble, half-sister Margaret Loftus, 13 grandchildren and 4 great-grand-children. No one who knew her was untouched by her generosity, intelligence, and smile. She loved many people who will love and miss her.
