Mrs. Dale R. Mann, age 92, Robinson, IL, died Sunday December 15, 2013 at 11:35 pm at Crawford Memorial Hospital, Robinson, IL, following many months of failing health.

Born October 3, 1921 on the family farm in Hutsonville Township, Crawford County, IL, she was the daughter of Oris and Goldie (Miller) Brown.  In March of 1947 she married Hubert F. Mann and he preceded her in death June 28, 1988.

Mrs. Mann worked as a Comptometer Machine Operator for many area businesses and for several businesses in California before coming back to the family home to care for her ailing father.  

She was a member of the Grand Prairie Christian Church, Robinson, IL.  Mrs. Mann was proud of the fact that her high school graduating class of 1939, was the first to graduate high school in the new WPA Gymnasium at Robinson High School.  She was saddened when the old gym was torn down.  Following High School, Dale attended Business College at Brown’s Business College in Terre Haute, IN, where she became proficient in the Comptometer and other office machines of that era.

Survivors include sons and daughter-in-law, Robert and Janet Mann, St. Charles, MO; James Mann, Houston, TX; four grandchildren, Lauren Mann, a school teacher, Osaka, Japan; Kevin Mann, Houston, TX; Michael Mann, Chicago, IL; Brian Mann, St. Charles, MO; a very dear friend and caregiver, Mrs. Marie Purcell, Robinson, IL along with several cousins.

Preceding her in death were her parents; husband, Hubert F. Mann, 1988; a daughter-in-law, Susan (Antrim) Mann, November 20, 2013; a brother, Dee Brown who died during training in WWII.

A combined Funeral and Memorial service will be conducted Friday December 20, 2013 at 11:00 AM for Mrs. Dale Mann and her Daughter-in-law, Mrs. Susan (Antrim) Mann at Pulliam Funeral Home, Robinson, IL with Rev. John Fyffe officiating.  Interment will follow in the Newlin Cemetery, Robinson, IL.  Visitation will be Thursday December 19, 2013 from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM at Pulliam Funeral Home, Robinson, IL.

I cleaned your mother's house for a few years. We became very close. She was a wonderful woman. I did not get to visit her as often as I would have liked. She loved to talk of her family. She was very proud of all of you. I will miss her greatly. My condolences to all of you.

I enjoyed going to see Dale. I loved her humor and quick wit. She always laughed and loved to share stories. Dale was very proud of her family. I will miss her.
