Marie Irene Schubert Manis, 38, of Dalton, had a sudden brain hemorrhage in the early hours of May 22 from which she never recovered. Her soul left her body on Tuesday, May 23. Because of the kind and giving person she was, she had previously chosen to be an organ donor. She leaves a legacy of lives saved and many aided by her choice.
Marie was a dedicated dental assistant and loving mother. She loved to cook. She loved horses. She loved historical period dramas and documentaries. She loved camping and collected coats and boots. Marie will be remembered as a beautiful person who was intelligent, insightful and who had a witty sense of humor.
Marie was born in Jacksonville, Fla., and grew up in Orange Park. She attended Northwest Whitfield High School and later graduated with honors from Milton High School in Milton, Fla.
She is survived by her spouse, Tom Manis; and a child, Colton Manis of Dalton; mother, Irene Jordan of Bozeman, Mont.; father, Leon Schubert of Milton, Fla.;, brother, Andy Schubert of Bozeman, Mont.; sister, Samantha Bell of Pace, Fla.
A small memorial was at the hospital chapel on Friday, May 26, followed by a memorial service at ChristChurch Presbyterian on Saturday.
