Marilyn Anstey died peacefully on October 29, 2016. She was surrounded by her children, loved on and lifted in prayer by so many. Marilyn was a long time resident of Fremont, having also lived in Ripon and most recently in Livermore. She had a long career at Kaiser Permanente, helping to open the hospital in Fremont. She retired from Kaiser in 1998. She is preceded in death by her parents Clifton and Wilalpha Ivey, step-mother Rose Ivey; her brother and sister-in-law Glynn and Jerry Ivey. Her beloved husband of 50 years Donald Anstey passed away in 2003. She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law Fred and Judy Ivey of Hudson Ohio; her nieces and nephews and their children. She leaves her children Jerry and Cheryl Anstey of Livermore; Donnelle and Craig Macho of Woodbridge VA; and Donnetta and Bruce McNeil of San Antonio TX. Her sweet grandchildren Melissa and Kiris Calo-oy; Nicole and Antonio Zevallos; Jenna and Ryan Cook; James Anstey and fiancée Karen Bieraugel; Rachel and Danny Foret; Kevin and Sarah Macho. And her precious 11 great-grandchildren Isabella, Phillip Vittoria and AJ Zevallos; Samson and Asher Calo-oy; Madeline, Gavin, Amelia Foret; Ethan and Aubrey Cook. It's with great faith and strength that she walked in this world. She always only made lifelong friends. She will be greatly missed. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

  1. Hello Brother Jerry,

    So sorry about your loss of your Mom. Our faith is her sight. She sees who we hope to see. She has seen Jesus.

    Soon, you will see her and Him. Resurrection is reality. God is good.

    May God bless you now, and always, in all ways. I love you, my friend.

    Grace and peace, Jeff Winfrey

  2. I grew up believing that Marilyn was a cousin and was always confused that she wasn’t included in our Easter girls’ picture. Finally her mother, whom I adored, explained it to me and I discovered it made no difference; she was my cousin. A favorite memory was her New Years Eve parties. All the teenagers came and sang, danced and ate the night away. She always was full of joy and had a nice word for me. I will miss her.

  3. When I think of Marilyn The first word that comes to mind is precious. She was one of the sweetest most gracious ladies I have ever met in my entire life . She was one of those rare people that you meet in your life that make you want to be the best person you can be. Marilyn Will always have a special place in my heart because she touched me so deeply. I truly feel honored to have had the opportunity of meeting her during her journey here. I have no doubt the Lord has a very special place set aside for her in heaven.
