“I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks.”
Patricia Anne (Hartz) Manna, age 90, of Dallas, Texas, passed away on the morning of November 11, 2022, in her home. Pat was born on February 10, 1932, in Reading, Pennsylvania, to Claire S. Hartz and Mary E. Coyle.
Pat graduated from Shillington High School and attended West Chester STC where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree. Pat and her husband Robert S. Manna, of Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania, were married in 1954. Pat is survived by her husband, her two children, Matthew and Michael (Catherine), and her two grandchildren, Joe and Madeline.
Pat was well known, among family and friends, as the hostess of the family Trim Our Tree Christmas Party. Over the years, the guest list for this annual event grew to more than 250 persons. Each year, attendees were required to bring an ornament for display on the Manna Family Christmas tree. Most of those ornaments, some of which date back to the late 1950’s, exist and are put to good use each December.
A private memorial service will be held on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery.
The family would like to thank Faith Presbyterian Hospice for the excellent care they provided to Pat. Remembrances may be made in the form of contributions to The T. Boone Pickens Center/Faith Presbyterian Hospice: https://www.forefrontliving.
