Birth: 1863
Death: Sep. 14, 1956

Amelia and Frank Mayberry moved to Whittier in 1910 from Barstow, where Frank was a miner. After the big oil strike in Santa Fe Springs, the Mayberrys stayed in the area through the 1950s, one the most prominent of the citizens to continue to live in their old homes. Amelia, grandmother of many children, and great grandmother to even more children, was called "Grandma Mayberry" by everyone in the area. Often, she would bake cookies and fill glasses of lemonade for the kids in the neighborhood. The Mayberrys sold properties that would eventually be resold as one acre parcels under the name of Sunshine Farm Acres. The Mayberrys donated a 14-acre parcel of land that would eventually become Amelia Mayberry Park.
