STAUNTON, Va. - Germaine "Peggy" Manning, 91, passed away June 24, 2013, at Staunton, after a period of failing health.

She was born April 8, 1922, in Nashua, N.H., daughter of Evremond and Clorinthe (LaFrance) Delude. She was a resident of Nashua for more than 80 years before retiring to Virginia to live with her daughter, Joyce, and son-in-law, Peter Bergeron.

Peggy attended Nashua schools. She was employed at Doehla's, Edgecomb, Nim-Cor and Fleet Bank, and also was a member of the Nashua Police Department for many years.

She married her husband, Charles H. Manning in 1944. They enjoyed 53 wonderful years together until he succumbed to cancer in 1997.

Peggy loved music, dancing and reading, but she was most happy when surrounded by a living room full of family and friends, all in rocking chairs, all talking and laughing at the same time.

She was predeceased by her parents, by her brothers, Armand and Arthur, and by her sister, Juliette (Dugas).

Survivors include her daughter, Joyce, and son-in-law, Peter Bergeron, of Verona; her son, Michael, and his wife, Doris (Laflotte) of Hooksett, N.H.; her grandson, Christopher Bergeron and his wife, Hollie (Compos), of Waynesboro; and their two children, Meagan and Madilyn. She is also survived by her brothers, Robert (Jack) Delude, of Tamworth, N.H., and George (Hank) Delude, and his wife, Ginny, of Hudson, N.H., and by her sisters, Theresa Galipeau and Irene Brouillard and her husband, Robert (Chick), and by her sister-in-law, Florence Delude, all of Nashua, N.H.; and also by several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Henry Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
