Nancy Caldon Manning (1928-2016)

OBIT - Nancy ManningNancy Caldon Manning ended her journey through life Wednesday, August  3, 2016, several weeks after an automobile accident.

Always cheery and energetic, she frequently wondered why everyone’s  favorite color wasn’t pink.  She was born May 19, 1928 in Campton, NH, and lived in Plymouth, NH, until moving to California in 1953. She and first husband Robert Edwin Lee of Plymouth (married 1948) settled in Davis, CA in 1958 with their two sons, the late Robert “Bobby” Newton Lee and Dr.William “Billy” Bryan Lee of Salt Lake City, UT. She moved to Arbuckle in 1964 with her older son, Bobby, and married the late Lloyd V. Manning of Arbuckle, where she remained a resident. Her parents were Arthur and Elisabeth (Fifield) Caldon, both of Plymouth. Nancy and her paternal twin brother, the late Newton Caldon were subsequently reared by George and Pearl Steele, of Plymouth.

Nancy graduated from Plymouth High School in 1946 and went on to Plymouth State College. She loved gardening, including mowing her own lawn. She had a large collection of modern dolls and doll houses. Her own house was kept neat as a pin, just like an ideal doll house. Nancy enjoyed solving jigsaw puzzles and theme-based antiquing, such as collecting jewelry boxes  and mouse figurines. She had many friends in Arbuckle, including the “Lunch Ladies”, Leta, Dona, Phyllis, Earline, and Josephine. The Lunch Ladies would meet every Wednesday. Another of the Lunch Ladies, the late Kay Dawley, was also a good friend, as were Kay’s daughters Debbie and Dori. Nancy was a loving person, and would often meet others in the post office. Because of this, she was never alone. After the passing of her second husband Lloyd Manning, the late Lou Hassler of Arbuckle was Nancy’s significant other for several years. After Lou’s passing, almond grower Paul Wagner of Arbuckle was her loving friend and companion. Nancy and Paul ate dinner every night in her little yellow doll home in Arbuckle.

In addition to her twin brother Newton and first son “Bobby”, Nancy was preceded in death by brothers Winston and Donald. She has two granddaughters, Alena and Samantha, and a great-grandson, Jack.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2016, starting with a viewing from 10:00-10:30 a.m. followed by a service directly after. Burial will take place at the Arbuckle Cemetery immediately after the service.   

Arrangements are under the direction of McNary-Moore Funeral Service FD-410 www.mcnarymoorefuneralservice.com
