Placeholder Image
Daisy Imogene Cardoza, 92, entered into eternal rest in Manteca on Nov.  4, 2010. She was born on September  5, 1918 in Buckhart, Missouri, to the late Mr. & Mrs. Harry and Sylvia Clark. She joins her beloved husband of 51 years, John A. Cardoza, in heaven.

Daisy leaves behind her loving daughter, Sylvia Rommel of Manteca, and her two loving grandchildren Christopher Rommel and Andrea Rommel, also of Manteca.  She is also survived by siblings Elpha Sue Childers, Springfield, Mo.  and Orben Clark, Ozark, Mo., along with many nieces, nephews and friends.

As a young girl during the Depression, Daisy always worked hard and knew the value of a dollar. After coming to California at 16, she eventually settled in Livermore, where Daisy and John met and were married on Dec 31, 1956.  She was a cosmetologist by trade and owned beauty salons there and raised her family. Always a collector of all kinds of antiques, she opened a store in Manteca and upon retiring she and John moved there. They resided in Manteca for 30 years.

Daisy was an avid genealogist and wrote a book on the Clark family history. She was a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and a dedicated member of the Red Hat Society. She had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening, baking, crocheting, quilting, crosswords and spending time with her friends at Bingo. Daisy also enjoyed traveling, going to Missouri often to see family.

Daisy was a wonderful wife, loving mother and cherished grandmother who will be greatly missed.  She will be remembered for how she excelled at whatever she did, her curious personality, her love for people and above all her unconditional love for her family.
