Carol Elaine McManus
Carol Elaine McManus, 62, was born in Houston, Texas on October 30, 1957. She passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 28, 2020.
Carol was a graduate from Pearland High School, Class of 1976. Later she graduated from Alvin Community College with her Associates Degree in Nursing. Carol lived in Pearland, Texas most of her life. Carol worked as a Home Health R.N. in the Houston area for over thirty years. Carol loved building relationships with her patients and cared for them deeply.
She spent the time that she was not working doting on her two grandchildren, Aiden and Addison. She loved animals, especially the family pets, Charlie, Ginny, and Max (whom she called Mikey).
Carol loved chatting with coworkers, spending time on Facebook, and shopping at Burke’s Outlet. She loved to bring home little gifts or candy for her grandchildren. She always had CNN on in the background while she did her charting in the evening. She often struggled with technology, but she persisted. She donated to many charities and causes that she believed in. She was an incredible grandmother or “Nina/Ina” and mother. She was extremely giving and full of love. She will be missed greatly. Addison, her granddaughter, is finding comfort knowing that she is up in Heaven with Mer-Mer.
She is preceded in death by parents, Gerald and Mary Sue McManus, sister, Deborah Orr, and oldest daughter, Meredith Freeland.
She is survived by daughter and son in law, Heather and Jon Reese, grandchildren, Aiden and Addison Reese, and sister, Sandra McManus.
