Born in Orange, Texas, on February 1, 1962, she was the daughter of Earl Dorman and Erica Scheiple. As a self-proclaimed “Domestic Engineer” Manuela loved to take care of her family and would do anything to protect them. She believed the best thing in life was to be a wife and mother and she went above and beyond that, being a selfless person and always thinking of others before herself. After being an amazing wife and mother, she then became a wonderful grandmother, having her grandchildren be her world. She also loved her sweet fur babies; Maybell, Angel and Lucy. Along with her family and dogs she also loved flowers, shopping, makeup, cooking the best breakfast, and the color pink. She loved the color pink so much she has a pink kitchen and pink door. She will be dearly missed by those who were lucky to know and love her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Earl Dorman and Erica Scheiple; and grandparents who raised her, Dora and Nathanial Dorman.
