Obituary for Sharon "Sherry" Marie Manning

Sharon Marie Manning was born at St. Joseph’s Hospital on August 2, 1945 in Tacoma, WA and passed away on August 5, 2017. She is survived by her loving companion, Russell “Rusty” Bass; two sons Scott (Paula) Manning and Jeffrey (Meghan) Manning; and three grandchildren Alison, Lexsi, and Hunter Manning.

Sherry attended school at Holy Cross and graduated from Wilson High School in 1963. After high school, Sherry got married and became a mother of two boys. She enjoyed being a part of a women’s soccer team, reading, and couldn’t get enough of crime shows. At 50 years old, Sherry became a grandmother and adored her grandchildren. Sherry was very giving to her grandchildren and was always there to support them in dance and soccer. After her divorce, she preferred to unwind at Ben Dews, where she met Rusty Bass. She truly found a partner who included her and enjoyed living and traveling with him for the past 14 years. They traveled to Reno, Las Vegas, and Laughlin where they would gamble and relax. She also enjoyed spending time with her son, Scott, and his family. Sherry was very dependable and had an incredible work ethic. After 20 plus years working as a computer programmer, she retired from Tacoma Public Schools in 2012.

Sherry requested to be cremated and did not want a memorial service. Sherry was loved by all that knew her and was incredibly kind. She will be truly missed.
