Stacey L. Mannel 1957 - 2018

Stacey L. Mannel, age 61 years, of Great Bend, Kan. and formerly of Holyrood, Hutchinson, and Burton, Kan., peacefully entered into the presence of Jesus, along with friends and family that have gone on before on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 16, 2018, at her home in Great Bend. Stacey was born on June 18, 1957, at Lyons, Kan. to Richard W. and Eileen John (Singleton) Shadduck. She was a long-standing member of Smoky Hill Baptist Church in Ellsworth, Kan. Stacey also was a longtime member of Holyrood Chapter #120 and Lyons Queen Esther Chapter #32, Order of Eastern Star.

Stacey enjoyed TV Westerns, crocheting plastic canvas, and people – she made friends extremely easily and never met a stranger. She also took in “strays” of any breed (animal or human), and was always willing to help those in need.

Stacey is survived and forever loved by her two daughters April M. Mannel of Great Bend, Kan. and Amber Mannel of McPherson, Kan. She is also survived by her father, Richard Shadduck and wife Evelyn of Sterling, Kan.; four brothers, Richard Shadduck of Independence, Kan., David (and his wife, Connie) Shadduck of Beaver, Kan., Kris Shadduck of Wichita, Kan., and Kelly (and his wife, Shawna) Shadduck of Beaver, Kan.; one sister, Catherine (and her husband, Jerry) Dean of Lyons, Kan.; her nephew, Kris Shadduck Jr. of Great Bend, Kan.; several other nieces and nephews; and family friend, BJ Cleaver. Stacey was preceded in death by her mother, Eileen John; and several aunts and uncles.
