The family would like to give a special thanks to Wilson Manor, who took such great care of her for the last couple of years.

Private graveside services will be held on Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 2 p.m. in the Wilson County Memorial Gardens with Bro. Jonathan Richerson officiating. Grandsons will serve as pallbearers.

Due to the concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic there will be no visitation prior to the graveside service. The family of Mrs. Mann understands that due to the current restrictions regarding large gatherings, many who wish to show their love and support in person will be unable to do so. Therefore, they would like to express their sincere gratitude for all the thoughts and prayers extended to them at this time.
