John Wiley Day

MARSHALL, Ill. — John Wiley Day, 91, of Marshall, formerly of Sutherlin, Ore., passed away on Feb. 9, 2014, at Union Hospital, in Terre Haute, Ind. John was born Aug. 24, 1922, to Wiley Day and Mae Cooper Day, in Lubbock, Texas. He married Melva Mazza on Sept. 20, 1965.

He was preceded in death by one brother, Sanford; and two sisters, Valentine and Georgia; two sons, Edward Mazza and Fred Mazza; and a daughter, Nancy Norman.

He is survived by one daughter, Judy Antunez of Marshall; a daughter-in-law, Debbie Mazza of Rogue River, Ore.; grandchildren, Tammy DePasse, Terri (Mike) Woldahl, Kenny “Skoal” Johnson and his companion Racheal, Debbi Mazza, Robert (Trisha) Mazza, Tim (Sheri) Mazza, Rick (Jill) Mazza, Lyssa (Dick) Arnett, Randy (Rhonda) Natho, Frank (Pam) Natho and Mark Natho; several great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.
