Catherine Mannixcousin

I will never forget how kind Sheila was to me when I first visited Ireland in 1981, a year after graduating from college. She gave me a bed, a meal with the family, and a ride to the train station. I met her again briefly during the extended family reunion in 2000. She was a kind soul. May she rest in peace. (oldest of Dennis Mannix, Chicago)

Kay MannixCousin by marriage

On behalf of Kay Mannix and family (wife of the late Dennis Mannix, Chicago), we wish to express our deepest condolences. Sheila was so kind to our family and despite having not seen her for 19 years, we exchanged Christmas cards every year. I (Kathleen) so looked forward to the family updates in those cards and annual calls we would make to each other. She was a kind and loving soul and enriched my life.
