Sherry Neese Manning

Sherry Jan Manning passed away at her home in Mexia on August 20, 2023 at the age of 73.  A Service of Death and Resurrection will be 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 2, 2023 in the First United Methodist Church with Reverend Jaime McGlothlin officiating.  Visitation with the family will be prior to the service beginning a 10:00 a.m.

Sherry was born February 12, 1950 in Mexia, Texas to James Hoyt “Dick” Neese, Jr. and Dolly Faye (Moore) Neese.  She graduated from Mexia High School, Class of 1968 where she was a twirler in the Mexia Blackcat Band, in addition to other activities.  Continuing her education, Sherry graduated from Kilgore College, where she performed with the Rangerettes, and went on to graduate from Texas Tech University with her Bachelor’s degree in education. 

Sherry ‘s teaching career spanned many years, prior to retiring from Mexia ISD.  She was dedicated to her job and touched the lives of many children throughout her career. 

Sherry was the proud mother of two boys, Dustin and Brandon, and an even prouder grandmother of four grandkids, Julianne, Alyssa, Carter, and Grady.   Due to her kids living out of state, she was always planning trips for the Christmas holidays and time off in the summer to visit them.  There wasn’t anything she enjoyed more in life than spending time with her kids and grandkids; her family was her life.

Sherry was a longtime member of the First United Methodist Church in Mexia.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Dick and Dolly Neese; brother, James “Hoyt” Neese, III; and nephew, James Hoyt “Jamie” Neese, IV.

Sherry is survived by her sons, Dustin Manning and wife, Brandy, Brandon Manning and wife, Kelly; grandkids, Julianne Manning, Alyssa Manning, Carter Manning, and Grady Manning; and nieces  Cindy Neese Vincent and Kari Neese Adams.
