In Memorium: Perri Ellen Mayes, Leading Milwaukee Mediator – 1960 – 2018

Perri Ellen Mayes passed peacefully on March 1, 2018, after a short illness, which she battled with grace and courage.


She was the beloved daughter of the late James and Eugenia Mayes. Perri was a lifelong resident of Milwaukee and graduated from University High School. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington University then continued her education at Drake University Law School for her Juris Doctorate.


Perri was a respected member of the dispute resolution profession as both an educator and practitioner. She taught mediation courses and served as director of the Mediation Clinic at University of Wisconsin – Madison. She frequently gave presentations at state and national conferences.


She had served as past president of both the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR), an international association, and the Wisconsin Association of Mediators (WAM), a statewide association. Perri received WAM’s 2012 Distinguished Service Award honoring outstanding dedication to the field.


Perri’s final weeks were filled with love and support from family and many loving visits from her friends. She will be dearly missed by her family members in the United States and Greece, her friends both life-long and new, and her colleagues.


Visitation will take place on Thursday, March 8, 2018, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM at Sts Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church, 2160 North Wauwatosa Avenue, Wauwatosa, followed by a Funeral Service at 11:00 AM. Interment will take place at Wisconsin Memorial Park Cemetery. Memorials in Perri’s name may be made to Sts Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church.
