W. Joyce (Manchester) Marks Obituary
W. JOYCE MARKS (n‚e Manchester) of Riverside, CA passed away peacefully in her sleep on November 9, 2015 at 86 years of age. Beloved wife of the late Eugene Anthony, loving mother of Rocky (Anne), Kevin (Mary), Vicki (John), and Cindy, proud grandmother of Sara (Kirk), Kristy (Trevor), Erin, Courtney, Matt and Chris, dear great-grandmother of Tyler, Cindy, and Riley. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. Preceded in death by parents Ivy and Pierce Manchester and sister Dorothy Seidl. Joyce was born on 12/11/1928, which was a Friday. A little known fact: all members of the immediate family were born on a Friday. Joyce was proud to be a Riverside native, longtime St. Thomas parishioner and retired nurse (graduating in 1951). She loved the Dodgers, following them even when they were in Brooklyn. Her interests and hobbies included camping, reading, bowling, cooking, knitting, traveling, and retirement. Joyce thoroughly enjoyed adding to her vast collection of DVDs, books on tapes, cookbooks and newspaper collections. Her children lived in four different states, which provided many travel opportunities throughout her later years. She always liked to say, "They can run, but they can't hide." A special memory of Joyce's was when all nineteen members of her family were able to join her on an Alaskan Cruise in 2010. Visitation will be held at Acheson & Graham Garden of Prayer Mortuary on Thursday, November 19th from 5 to 8 PM. Rosary and Mass at St. Thomas on Friday, November 20th starting at 9:30 am, 3774 Jackson Street, Riverside, CA 92503. Burial at Riverside National Cemetery at 2pm. No flowers per Mom's wishes. Please donate to a nursing college of your choice in her name.
