Marilyn “Junior” Manny passed away March 2, 2019, in Missoula.
Born Jan. 23, 1943, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, to Richard and Arlene (Personett) Mansfield Zeihen. The family then moved to Montana in 1944. Marilyn married Richard A. Manny on Jan. 27, 1961, in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, and they had two sons. She was a supportive military spouse and dedicated mother. She spent lots of time at the race track and down in the sand dunes of Oregon. She enjoyed fishing, laughing and making friends wherever life took her — but camping was not a favorite pastime.
Surviving are her husband Richard A. Manny of Corvallis; and two sons, Rick and Brent; sister, Judith (Elden) Roberts of Stevensville; half-siblings, Sandy Klev, Richard Mansfield, Thomas Mansfield, Debra Knowles and Marcia Kirkes; granddaughter, Claudia Gray of Reardon, Washington; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by her parents and brothers: Pete, Dale, Wayne, Jerry and Jim Mansfield.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Marilyn on Saturday June 1, 2019, at the Corvallis Grange #17 — details to follow
