Obituary of Coral Diana Manning
Manning, Coral Diana
December 31 1929 to November 16 2022
With heavy hearts and deep sadness we said farewell to a very precious English rose on Wednesday, November 16, 2022. Coral Diana will once again be with her cherished husband Douglas Agate Manning who passed away in 2010.
Left to mourn this loss is her family in England, sister-in-law Enid (late Colin) Craik, nephew David, nieces Coral and Diana (Marcus), as well as great nephews Dylan and Stephen. Coral was predeceased by her parents Herbert and Ella (Griffin) Craik and niece Kimberly.
There will be an immense void in the lives of her adopted Canadian family. Coral will forever be loved and missed by Barbara (late George who she loved like a son) Foster, Grandma to Joseph and Nicole Foster and her very special Great grandson Gabriel.
Coral was a woman with a loving heart while also possessing grace and style. Her skills varied from a career in drafting and mapping to gourmet cooking, piano playing, and seamstressing to her most precious hobby of creating and maintaining a prestigious English garden. Coral fully enjoyed her travels to numerous countries while supporting her husband in his career as a renowned artist. She was a woman that loved life and adventures it held.
At Coral’s request the funeral arrangements will be private and in the care of Blair & Son Funeral Directors, Perth.
In remembrance of Coral, contributions to the University Hospital Kingston Foundation or Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario would be appreciated.
