Shirley Manning passed away peacefully on April 21, 2012, at the age of 70 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Shirley was born on April 12, 1942, in Elgin, to her parents, Earl and Sophie (Heine) Dollar. She shared a loving marriage with her husband Norman Manning for over 43 years. She proudly served as a teacher in Taylor ISD for 36 years, and for 39 years total in the state of Texas.
Family was always most important to this generous, loving lady. Her family understood that she was always there to help with anything they needed while never expecting anything in return other than their love. Her children, grandchildren, and extended family and friends were always in her heart and on her mind and she showered them all with her caring love.
She leaves behind her loving family; husband Norman Manning, of Taylor; sons, Jon Manning and wife Lisa, of Taylor, and Will Manning and wife Kristina of Salado; grandchildren, Amy and Kayla Manning, of Salado; and brothers, Bobby Dollar, of Austin, and Walter Dollar, of Edna. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
A rosary was held Monday at Providence Funeral Home in Taylor. A Funeral service is scheduled for 3 p.m., Tuesday, April 24, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylor with burial to follow at Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Cemetery in Pflugerville.
