Virginia Catherine Manning (Perry) of West Hartford, CT died on Monday, May 27, 2019 at home while being cared for by her children. She was 96 years old. She was the loving wife of the late Deacon George Gerard Manning. Virginia was born on August 6, 1922 in Hartford, CT to Ernest and Isabel Williams Perry.

From the Diocese of Hartford, she received the medal of St. Joseph for her volunteer work. Every day she attended Mass and had a deep devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, praying more than one rosary daily. Virginia enjoyed playing scrabble, crossword puzzles and code breaker puzzles, and more recently played Words with Friends on her iPad.
