Nancy E. Manion, 78, of Cazenovia, passed away Friday, December 4, 2020 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born July 16, 1942 in Lanesboro, Minnesota to Horace and Julia Thomas. Nancy was a graduate of the University of Minnesota and taught elementary school teacher for several years before devoting her time to nurture her family and support their many activities.

In her leisure time she and her husband enjoyed both cross country and downhill skiing. She was also an avid swimmer, enjoyed tending to her flower garden and sewing.
