Quineth "Queen Esther" Manning

April 1, 1941 — December 8, 2023

 

Quineth “Queen Esther” Manning, was born on April 1, 1941 in Franklin, Texas to her parents, Lula B. and Quincy Jones. She was the 4th oldest of ten children born to this union and was raised with her siblings, James, Terry, Thomas, Quincy, Riley, Naomi, Margaret and Ruth Lee.

Queen’s educational journey began at Clovis High School in Clovis, New Mexico. She embraced the opportunities presented to her during her academic years.

Following high school she began a career in custodial services and housekeeping. She also dedicated her career to caregiving where she served as a foster care provider. Queen had a diverse career that showcased her dedication to helping others. Her commitment to providing a safe and nurturing environment for those in need earned her respect and admiration.

In 1957, Queen Esther became the proud mother of a beautiful baby girl, Wilma Jean Peters. Queen was a loving and devoted mother who nurtured and loved her only daughter dearly. Jean’s fondest memories of her mother was her unconditional love and support she provided to her when she had her own children.

In 1974, Queen Esther was joined in holy matrimony with Alvin G. Manning in Denver, Colorado. The couple enjoyed many loving years together where they would gather with family and friends for gatherings and parties.

Queen was a woman of many passions and interests. She devoted her life to Christ and was a member of Unity Church of God and Christ where she served for many years. Queen Esther loved being a grandmother and she loved taking her grandchildren to church. She enjoyed trips to Las Vegas and the mountains. Additionally, she thoroughly enjoyed cooking, shopping, and watching all her favorite old western movies, listening to her gospel music and country songs. Calamity Jane was her favorite western movie; The Williams Brothers was her favorite gospel singers and George Jones was her favorite country singer. Gatherings with her best friends Rose Long and Mary Green brought her immense joy, especially when they played cards or simply spent quality time together.

In this time of grief, we remember Queen’s impact on those around her. She leaves behind cherished memories and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Alvin G. Manning; brothers, LQ, Terry, Thomas, James; sisters, Naomi, Margaret and Ruth Lee, as well as her granddaughters, Lakesha Deshayzor Ford and Nicole Denise Talley.

Queen Esther will forever be remembered by her daughter Wilma Jean Peters; granddaughters Latanya Huling (Walter) and Theresa Peters; grandsons David Peters, Aaron Talley (Britnay), Jerome Talley; brothers Quincy Jones and Riley Jones. Additionally, Queen will be remembered by her seventeen great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren, her foster children and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

Her legacy of compassion, kindness, and dedication will continue to inspire all those whose lives she touched.

Psalms-23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
