Marvin M. Manegold

WILMINGTON—Marvin M. Manegold, 81, of Wilmington, went home to be with Jesus on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022. He had been surrounded by family and was in the presence of his loving wife at Lightways Hospice Home in Joliet.
Born Oct. 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), who he married June 25, 1988; daughter, Cindy Steinhaus, of Arkansas; one son, Marvin M.

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.
