Manuela has lost her battle with cancer and has donated herself to Science and will be cremated. No official services will be held but instead do as she would do and just celebrate life.. have a beer!!
Since Manuela spent later half of her life in the USA, especially here in Texas I thought it might be nice to celebrate her life by sharing stories, comments, pictures, music, videos, etc so that her children and grandchildren can get to know her better from our point of view.
I have known Manuela since early 2000 when she still lived in Nolanville Central Texas but already worked in Killeen for the Klingenberg clan or otherwise known as CVC. Manuela was always a very generous and helpful soul which sometime would also leave her open to people who would take advantage. But generally speaking we all knew her for her love of animals, especially horses, dogs and cats [not necessarily in that order], an avid rider, horse trail participant, a sometime fisher person [when she hung out at the coast with friends], a photographer, an all out outdoorsy type of gal, and a friend!!
