Manya Marilyn Ferguson

July 19, 1947 — July 4, 2024

Pocatello

Manya (Popoff) Ferguson passed away peacefully at Elegant Assisted Living in Pocatello, Idaho on July 4, 2024 after a long battle with congestive heart failure.


Manya was born and raised in Bell, California, and worked for much of her life as an executive assistant. She met Wayne, the love of her life, through their high school alumni website not knowing they had actually met for the very first time in elementary school. They married in August of 2000 and lived in southern CA before moving on to Henderson NV, Winnemucca, NV and eventually retired with their “fur-babies” in Pocatello Idaho.


Manya was an outgoing, caring, spirit with a sharp wit and great faith. She loved God, her family, friends, church family, and caregivers and was making jokes up until almost the very end. While she will be greatly missed by her brother Pete, sister Tanya, family and friends, she is greatly welcomed in heaven where her husband Wayne and her parents have waited to greet her.
