McManamon, Joseph  
Hon. Joseph Francis McManamon Hon. Joseph Francis McManamon 12/15/2014 Joseph Francis McManamon, 95, died peacefully in the early hours of Monday, December 15, 2014, at his home in Wilmington, Delaware. Joe was born at home on September 15, 1919, in Cleveland, Ohio. He was the son of the late Irish immigrants, Joseph and Catherine (Moran) McManamon. The oldest of five, Joe was preceded in death by his brother Fr. John McManamon, O.F.M., (Cleveland) and sister, Mary Clare Mangan (Cleveland); he is survived by his brothers Fr. James McManamon, O.F.M., (Cleveland) and Dr. Thomas V. McManamon (Betty) (Spokane, Washington). In addition, Joe leaves behind his beloved wife, Ann (Aherne) McManamon (Wilmington); his children, Penelope (Penny) Fatora (Dave) (Falling Waters, West Virginia), Thomas J. McManamon (Leslie) (Dublin, Ohio), and Mary Brigid McManamon (Wilmington); seven grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and eleven nieces and nephews. Joe had a long career in public service. He was a lieutenant in the Navy during World War II, serving in the South Pacific. Returning to Cleveland after the War, he worked for the Cleveland Police Department as a homicide detective and an instructor at the Police Academy while attending law school. Joe and his wife, Ann, opened their own law practice, which they ran for about twenty years. From 1968 to 1970, Joe served as Cleveland Safety Director, the civilian head of the Police and Fire Departments. Thereafter, he returned to private law practice until 1977, when he was elected to the bench. Joe served first on the Cleveland Municipal Court and then on the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, retiring in 1993. Joe was a devout Catholic, attending St. Joseph's Franciscan Seminary in Hinsdale, Illinois, for six years. He received his A.B. from John Carroll University in Cleveland. It was his understanding of Christ's message that led him to join the civil rights movement in the 1960's. In the face of intense bigotry, including death threats, he worked for the election of Carl Stokes as Mayor of Cleveland, the first African-American mayor of a major American city. One of Joe's proudest moments was meeting the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Joe was an avid golfer, having begun as a caddy in his tweens. He took his clubs on vacations and thoroughly enjoyed his time out on the "links." He even accomplished a hole in one in his lifetime. When he retired, he and Ann moved to Pensacola where they lived on the first tee at Perdido Pines Golf Course for many years. Subsequently, they moved to Heron's Forest. During his time in Pensacola, Joe was an active member of Holy Spirit Parish, including teaching RCIA classes. As Joe approached 90 years of age, he and Ann decided to move to Wilmington, Delaware, to be closer to family. Although he missed the warm weather of Pensacola, his friends there will be comforted to know the last years of his life were spent happily among his family and new Delaware friends.

Myers, Joan  
Joan R. Myers 1929 - 2014 Joan Ruth Ziebell Myers was born on October 6, 1929, in Kendallville, Indiana and lived her life fully until her passing on Friday, November 21, 2014. She was the only child of Clarence and Bernice Ziebell. After graduating from Kendallville High School (class of '47), Joan was active with Tri Kappa, an Indiana women's philanthropic organization. In 1951, she earned her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University, graduating with honors. She taught kindergarten and elementary school for many years. In eighth grade, Joan first met her future husband, John David Myers, when his cousins held her arms so that he could kiss her. They did not see each other again until they were both in college. They were married Christmas Eve of 1952 by John's grandfather, a Methodist minister, and were married for 56 years. They travelled together throughout John's 30 year Navy career, living in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Illinois, and moving to Pensacola in 1968, where they retired and enjoyed the rest of their lives. Joan was very active with both the Navy Relief Society, where she served as Volunteer Chairman, and the Military Officer's Wives Club. For years, both John and Joan were active members of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. Joan served on the Altar Guild, held the offices of President of Women of the Church, Secretary of the Vestry, Co-President of Sunday School, and Episcopal Young Churchmen (EYC) Advisor. Joan was also very active with the Escambia High Band Boosters where she enjoyed interacting with the kids, working in the concessions stand, fundraising for the band and chaperoning football games and band trips. Joan continued her association with the EHS band, when her granddaughters joined The Pride. Joan enjoyed many things - playing the piano and organ, travelling, gardening, and volunteering - but her greatest joy was her family. She loved them dearly and taught them to value education, faith, helping others, and loving one another. Her death leaves a great hole in their lives and in the lives of those who knew her. She is survived by her daughters Jody Kellerman (Keoki) and Janna Wood (Craig - for whom she was a second mother), and four grandchildren Kai and Kii Kellerman and Kelsey and Kayla Wood. A Memorial Service will be held on December 27, 2014 at 10:00 am at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church located at 805 N Blue Angel Highway. Interment will follow at Pensacola Memorial Gardens.
