Sandra Echols Manley

Sandra Echols Manley, 70, of Reidsville, went home to be with her heavenly Father on Friday, March 26, 2021. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM, Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at Covington Wesleyan Church with Rev. Ralph Clayton officiating. Burial will follow in Evergreen Memory Gardens. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service and other times at the home of Jeffrey and Pam Manley, 1505 Grooms Road. Sandra was born in Rockingham County to the late Jack and Ruth Collins Echols. She was a lifetime member at Covington Wesleyan Church where she was a former Sunday school teacher, member of the choir, ladies’ trio, and Wesleyan Women. Her strong faith sustained her through a lengthy illness. She worked many years in the textile industry before retirement. Her greatest joy was her family and spending time with them.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, William “Benny” Manley; sons, Jeffrey Manley and wife Pam, Tyler Manley and wife Jennifer; grandchildren, Matthew, Skyler and Connor Manley and Allison Foust; great granddaughter, Jessalyn Manley; brothers, David Echols and wife, Dolly, Donnie Echols, Jimmy Echols and wife Jennifer; sister; Hazel Wilson; very special friend, Marie Talbott; numerous nieces and nephews. Memorial contributions may be made to Covington Wesleyan Church, 3218 Vance Street Ext., Reidsville, NC 27320.


Sandra was a beautiful person and we are so very sorry for your loss. She loved her family and talked about them so much when we worked together at Unit. She was a good friend and I will miss her. Love to you and Praying for you all
