Sondra Shyann Manning

November 2, 1994 - March 31, 2021

Carson City resident Sondra Shyann Manning, 26, entered eternal rest on March 31, 2021.

Born to Leni (Miller) Manning and Charles David Manning, Sr. on November 2, 1994 in Fountain Valley, California, Sondra was a bit of a surprise, arriving home to meet her 11 year-old sister, Natasha Lee Kennemur (Jeremy) and her 10 year-old brother, Charles David Manning, Jr. (Carey).

Sondra studied cosmetology, training at the prestigious Redken I.A.S. with two of her besties, but she changed her focus to sales at which she excelled, capitalizing on her innate charm and convincing candor. Sondra was a devoted and loyal friend to many, loving with depth and pure intention. She possessed quick wit and a wicked sense of humor. Kind and compassionate, Sondra was a bright spot in the lives of all who encountered her.

She was preceded in death by her father, a loss she felt acutely and never recovered fully from.

She is survived by her loving mother, her siblings, her loving aunt and uncle, many nephews, numerous friends and relatives, and her beloved dog, Brϋtus.
