Sandra L. Manning, 66, of Warren died Sunday, October 16, 2011 following a courageous three year battle with illness. She was born February 9, 1945 in Bradford, PA to the late Ken and Betty Ray Coldren. A 1963 graduate of Bradford Area High School and former resident of Reading, PA, she retired from Integra Bank after several years of service. Quite the crossword puzzle aficionado (always in pen), Sandra was an avid reader; she enjoyed word games on her computer and had a mastery of the card games. Her greatest joy was her family- being known as a wonderful, loving wife and mother and caring grandmother to her granddaughters. Sandra loved sitting around the fire at her cottage on Chautauqua Lake and enjoyed her travels, especially to the Grand Canyon. She was a past member of the Lakewood Rod and Gun Auxiliary.
Sandra is survived by her husband, William Manning, whom she married on February 8, 1964 in Limestone, NY. A daughter- Michele Albaugh and her husband Jeff, of Warren; Two sons- Stephen Manning and his companion James Wilson, of Portland, OR, and Jeffrey Manning and his companion Amy Flatt, of Reading, PA; Two brothers- Kenneth Coldren and John Coldren, both of Bradford; A sister- Jane Kohler, of Bradford; and two granddaughters- Dominica and Olivia Luzzi, at home.
