Carol Lynne (Nathan) Mann was born in Stockton, California on August 16, 1945 to Richard Henry and Amelia “Millie” (neé Walters) Nathan. She passed away the evening of June 5, 2020; she was 74. She is known by her grandchildren and others as "Noel".
Carol graduated from Amos Alonzo Stagg High School (Stockton) in 1963. She started her career at the Social Security Administration in 1964 and proudly retired in 2000 after 36 years of service. Carol’s knowledge of ASL (American Sign Language) allowed her to communicate with her deaf and hearing-impaired clients.
Carol married Larry Mann in 1977. They moved to Milwaukie, Oregon in 1980 where they could be closer to their Northwest family. Carol and Larry were active members of Glenfair Church in Portland. She enjoyed bowling, knitting, baking (pies being her specialty), reading, tending to her urban garden, playing cards, cheering on her Golden State Warriors, San Francisco Giants and 49ers. She also enjoyed traveling with Larry and would cruise to places around the world, many times with family or friends. They always returned with new friends. They regularly visited “the kids” or other family. Those visits always included a “honey-do” list…which Carol and Larry loved doing. Carol continued her visits and “honey-doing” after Larry’s passing 3 years ago.
Carol is survived by her family, Nicolette Allan of Beaverton, Oregon, Ericka Baltzer of Clinton Township, Michigan, Chris (Donna) Mann of Corvallis, Oregon, and Kimberley (Dale) Dunkle of Castor, Alberta; her grandchildren, Katie Mann, Lori (Cameron) Ward, Alexis Allan, James (Elizabeth) Allan, Tyana (Kevin) Misiuda, and Greg Baltzer; her great-grandchildren, Jackson Misiuda, Cora Misiuda, Caden Misiuda and Thomas Allan; as well as her great-niece, Alexa Willis. She is preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Larry Mann; her parents, Millie and Henry Nathan; her sister, Jacqueline Johnson; and niece, Christine Willis.
A Celebration of Life is tentatively planned for August 16, 2020. Please check back for updates.
