Louise E. Mann
CONWAY - Louise E. Mann, 94, of Conway, died Feb. 6, 2013, at the Memorial Hospital after a brief illness. Born in Tamworth, the daughter of Frederick and Ruby (Stone) Garland, she grew up in Chatham and lived in Dover from 1947 to 1987 when she moved to the Mount Washington Valley. Last year marked the 75th year of her graduation from the former Tamworth High School and she was also honored as the oldest graduate.
Mrs. Mann was married to the late Henry W. Mann, for 59 years, who died in 1995.
Louise became a mythical figure to her family and all around her. She endured much in life and processed a vast knowledge of history and genealogy of the area. She has touched many lives and helped many others in her community. She had a love for history, sewing, reading, genealogy, quilting, crosswords puzzles and gardening at home and at camp in Chatham. During World War II she was a plane spotter in Fryeburg, Maine.
Louise had been a very active volunteer with R.S.V.P. for 26 years, the Gibson Center for Senior Services and up until last month she was active with the Conway Public Library and the Conway Animal Shelter Thrift Shop. She also had been a member of the Chatham Congregational Church since 1988.
The family includes: three daughters, Lynda L. Kubeck and her husband Jerry of Ellenton, Fla., Rachel I. Pierce and her husband Richard of Westbrook, Maine, and Phyllis I. Mann of Springfield, Mo.; four grandchildren, Jeff Jones of Omaha, Neb., Cheryl Jones of Rochester, Lori Jones of Keene and ViJay Pierce of Australia; five great-grandchildren; eight great-great-grandchildren; two brothers, Lincoln Garland of Chatham and Gene Garland of New Durham; a sister, Eleanor Cutting of Lebanon, Maine and several nieces and nephews.
Private services will be held at the convenience of the family. Burial will be in the Conway Village Cemetery later in the spring.
Donations may be sent to the Gibson Center for Senior Services, P.O. Box 655, North Conway, N.H. 03860 in her memory. The Furber and White Funeral Home in North Conway is in charge of arrangements.
