    Narlene passed away at her home on June 14, 2011, surrounded by her family. Narlene was born to Louis Bronson (Bun) and Isyl Faye Robertson Titus on Sept. 16, 1931 in Moab, and lived in the Moab area for most of her life.

    She was involved in many community organizations including The Eagles, The Lady of Elks Moab Lodge No. 2021, the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, the Daughters of the American Revolution and the American Legion Auxiliary’s Unit No. 54.

    Narlene was a Boy Scout Leader, a volunteer for the Jeep Posse Search and Rescue of Grand County and a volunteer firefighter in La Sal, Utah.

    Narlene had a deep love for Moab and its residents. She was always doing something for someone and trying to help as many people as she could, in any way she could, whether it be cooking big meals or bringing people home to stay. She was always putting herself out there to help with whatever needed to be done.

    She held many jobs throughout the years including running Fern’s Café Tavern & Motel. She cooked at several local restaurants including the Westerner Grill, the Ramada and the La Sal Junction Café, just to name a few.

    She was a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service for many years, and her route covered from La Sal through Spanish Valley. She also traveled with, and at times was the relief driver for her husband Homer, a job we know she loved very much.

    She was wed to Homer L. Manson on Oct. 21, 1950. Together they had four children: Louis Manson (Pam Manson), Alan Manson, Fleda Koehler (Cal Koehler) and Bobbi Sue Manson. Narlene and Homer were happily married for 47 years before Homer’s passing in 1997. They have left behind 16 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild – proof that their love was strong and their legacy will live on in us and our children for many generations to come.

    Narlene was preceded in death by her husband, Homer Louis Manson; her sister, Mary Lou Titus; her parents, Faye and Bun Titus; her brother, Lonnie; her nephew, Lonnie Joe; and her grandson, Donavon Sanchez.

    Services were held June 18 at the Locust Lane LDS Chapel in Moab. Interment was at Grand Valley Cemetery.
