Marvin M. Manegold

Age 81 of Wilmington, Illinois went home to be with Jesus on Saturday morning, November 26, 2022. He had been surrounded by family and was in the presence of his loving wife at Lightways Hospice Home in Joliet, Illinois.

Born October 27, 1941 in Joliet, Marvin was a son of John William, Sr. and Edna (Wren) Manegold. He was raised in Carbon Hill and spent his career working for the railroad. Marvin retired in 2002 from Norfolk Southern, following 36 years of service. He was a man of unwavering faith, which only grew stronger throughout the years.  He was a member of Harvest Worship Center Church in Wilmington, and in his free time enjoyed nearly anything related to horses or trains. Marvin had a great sense of humor, and beyond his tough reputation proved to be a selfless individual who would give anything to anyone. Gone from our sight, Marvin leaves behind a wonderful example of peace, love and salvation.

Survivors include his wife, Marcia (nee Carr) whom he married June 25, 1988; daughter, Cindy Steinhaus of Arkansas; one son, Marvin M. Manegold, Jr. of Alabama; grandchildren: Cheryl (Tony) Blowers, Christina (Ryan) Johnson, Marvin M. (Rachel) Valentine, Stephanie (Ryne) Eickmeyer, Nikki Nichols and Tim (Alexa) Steinhaus; many great grandchildren; his sister, Barbara (the late Gill) Billings of Florida; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Charles and Angie Carr of Wilmington; brother-in-law, Don (Yolanda) Carr of Arizona; numerous nieces and nephews, including his special nephew, David (Dana) Manegold, and his special companion, Tiki.

Marvin was preceded in death by his parents; son, James Manegold; brother, John Manegold, Jr.; two sisters: Elizabeth Ann Ashton and Debbie Hastings, and three nephews: Joseph Vargas, Walter Nonanburg and Richard Carr.
