Gladys Virginia (Greegor) Manning

A Wonderful Cook and Baker -

Gladys Virginia (Greegor) Manning, age 98, of Carlisle, and formerly of Churchtown, passed away into the arms of her Lord and Savior with her family by her side on Saturday, January 14, 2023.  Gladys was born on Tuesday, January 22, 1924, in Churchtown to the late Hubert Vincent Greegor and Hulda Estelle (Burtner) Greegor.  In addition to her parents, Gladys is preceded in death by her daughter: Virginia “Ginger” Manning; and her three brothers: George, Ralph, and Roy Greegor.

Gladys’s survivors include her son: Leonard Vincent Manning of Carlisle; her two grandchildren: Shawn T. Keen and wife, Brigid, of Carlisle, Jennifer Keen Woodford and husband, Woody, of Enola; her three great-grandsons: Kyle Keen and wife, Taylor; Samuel Keen; Logan Woodford and wife Erinn; her great-great grandchildren: Ezra and Noelle Woodford; and her two nieces; Cathie Zimmerman and Vonnie Sheaffer.

Gladys was a hard worker who retired as a bus driver from the Cumberland Valley School District, after more than 33 years of service.  She loved driving bus and many of the students she transported to and from school, kept in touch over the years.  Gladys also cooked at the Roadway Restaurant in New Kingston, where her “World’s Best” fried chicken was a favorite of the truck drivers that stopped to eat there. Gladys served as the custodian for Keen Transportation in New Kingstown. Gladys was a lifelong member of the Churchtown Church of God.  Her family fondly remembers the delicious food that she made for them as well as the Friday night game nights, filled with Parcheesi and card games.  Gladys enjoyed solving crossword puzzles and loved to get in the car and travel.  She often took trips to different restaurants and would drive, by herself, to North Carolina to visit family.  Gladys was very artistic and created many original drawings.  She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

All are welcome to join Gladys’s family at viewing on Thursday, January 19, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. until time of service at 12:00 p.m. at Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory, 37 East Main Street, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055; and her virtual gathering of family and friends and service via video chat or telephone beginning at 11:45 a.m.; with Pastor Brian D. Warner officiating.  Gladys’s family invites everyone to join them for a time of food and fellowship at Buhrig’s Gathering Place (next to the funeral home) immediately following the service.  Burial will follow the reception in Mt.
