Joanne F. Manning

Joanne F. Manning (nee Osorno), who grew up in Dumont and lived in Bergenfield for 45 years, passed away on July 2, 2020 after a short battle with an aggressive form of cancer.  She passed peacefully, surrounded by her loving children and devoted husband.  Joanne leaves behind the love of her life, Frank R. Manning, to whom she was happily married for 53 years.  Joanne was a very strong woman who gave birth to five children: Tracy (Ed), Frank (Krissy), Wendy (Billy), Michelle (Chris) and Kevin (Sherry).  Her greatest joy was her twelve grandchildren, Emily and Will Keeney; Frank, Kassidy, Karly and Kelty Manning; Nicholas and Tyler Bajakian; Christopher and Caitlyn Johnson; and Logan and Lila Manning.  Joanne was an active parent who volunteered at her children’s schools and activities. While her oldest was in college, Joanne decided to go to Bergen Community College to earn her nursing degree.  She fulfilled her dream of becoming an oncology nurse at Hackensack University Medical Center – she loved her patients and had a reputation as one of the most skilled in the infusion room.  Joanne’s passions all centered around her family.  She enjoyed cruising to Bermuda with Frank, cooking traditional comfort food for her family and friends and vacationing at the beach in LBI.  Joanne and Frank loved watching their grandchildren compete in sports and activities – they drove all over Bergen County to cheer them on!  It is impossible to imagine this world without her friendly, smiling face, her strength of character and her amazing meals.  She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.  Joanne is preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Josephine Osorno, and a sister, Dorothy.  She leaves behind a sister, Arlene (Tom) DeSocio.  A Funeral Mass will be held at St. John the Evangelist R.C. Church, 29 N. Washington Avenue, Bergenfield, NJ 07621, on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at 11:00 am.  Due to capacity limitations, the family is welcoming Joanne’s family and closest friends to the church. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Joanne’s name to the Eric Ayala Foundation (ericayalafoundation.org).

Cathy and I are sorry to hear of Joan's passing. She sent me to her Father for my first job when I finished my active
duty in the Corps. May she rest in peace.

Coach, and the Manning children, please accept my condolences on the passing of Mrs. Manning. She was a terrific person and I'm glad to have known her and all of your family for over 40 yrs. She was outspoken, tough, and a fierce competitor, she always reminded me of my own mother. May her wonderful memories comfort you during this difficult time.

Frank and family; Joanne was a wonderful and amazing friend for over 55 years. A strong willed and beautiful woman. It is ironic that we are writing this on the Fourth of July which was the date of our many family get togethers and pig roasts. So many memories. Joanne lived a life that mattered.

My deepest sympathies to Frank, Tracy, Frank, Wendy, Michelle, and Kevin. I met Joanne only a few times when I lived in Ridgewood and she visited Tracy & Ed. Your special wife/Mom/Grandmother certainly left a lovely, fun impression on me. I am so sorry for your family's loss. Agnes
