Obituary

Beth Mazzocchi Ayres, of New Smyrna Beach, passed away Monday, September 25, 2017, at the age of 48.  Beth was born January 28th, 1969, in Morristown, New Jersey, to Samuel and Deanna Mazzocchi. She attended St. Vincent Martyr Grammar School (Madison, NJ), Academy of St. Elizabeth High School (Convent Station, NJ), was a proud Jasper at Manhattan College (Riverdale, NY) and received a Master’s degree in Teaching from Seton Hall University (South Orange, NJ). 

Beth taught Language Arts for 20+ years in both New Jersey and Florida.  While living in Florida, she was employed at Basilica School of St. Paul’s (Daytona, FL) and, at the time of her passing, she was employed at Galaxy Middle School (Deltona, FL) as a 6th grade Language Arts teacher.  Beth loved teaching children and brought her “New Jersey flare” with her into her Florida classroom.

Beth is survived by her loving husband, Joey Ayres, who made her happy every second of everyday.  She is also survived by her two children, John and Matthew Sermania, whom she loved dearly and with all her heart, as well as her loving aunt, Susan Dyer.  Beth is preceded by her parents, Deanna and Samuel Mazzocchi. 

Services will be held at Baldwin Brothers, 1 North Causeway, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, on Friday, September 29th 2017, from 10am to 12pm.  A viewing will be held from 10am – 11am with a Catholic service beginning at 11:00am.

Beth will be remembered for her love of life, her humor, her sense of adventure and her ability to make anyone who came into her home feel welcome and like family.

“We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.

For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories.  Your love is still our guide.

And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side … ” (Tanner)

Beth, you were loved by many and will be missed.  Thank you for the memories, your friendship and your love.

    She was a great teacher, and the best type of friend I could ask for. Mrs. Ayres helped me through my first year of middle school and I thank her for everything she has done.

    Rest in peace.
