Manuela Tugman Obituary

Manuela G. Tugman passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on Monday, March 4, 2024 at the age of 87. She was born on July 22, 1936 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska to the late Nabor and Maria (Paramo) Guzman.

Manuela will be forever cherished by her husband, John; their children, Lisa (Trent) Grocock, Tanya (Bill) Porterfield, and Matthew (Danette) Tugman; grandchildren: Lauren, Justin, Samantha, Lilly, Peyton, Madison, Matthew, Hannah, Tanner, Brandon and Chris; great-grandchildren, Everleigh and Addison; brothers, Raymond (Liz) Guzman and Frank Guzman; sister, Liz (Steve) McCarthy; and her huge extended family. Manuela was preceded in death by siblings: Joe, Stanley, Jake and Helen.

Of all the names she was called through her lifetime: “Hon”, Mom, Manuela, Nell, Tia, and Nana, it was the last 28 years as "Nana" that delighted her most.  

Upon retiring from bookkeeping, she was called to serve the church, starting off in religious education, and not ending until the last few weeks of her life in general administrative duties in the main parish office.
