Covington, Louisiana

Paula Pfeiffer Manger passed from this life on Tuesday, May 30, 2023 at her home surrounded by loving family at the age of 78.

Manger Jr and Wade Manger, her parents Raymond Vincent Pfeiffer and Rita Louise Asprion Pfeiffer, siblings Wayne Gerald Pfeiffer and Gail Pfeiffer Garay, and nephew Miguel Cruz. She is survived by brother Gerald Pfeiffer (Wanda), son David Manger (Minty), sister-in-law Andrea Pfeiffer, nieces and nephews Anna Broussard (Mark), Lynn Schnauder (Matt), Wayne Pfeiffer Jr (Ginger), Gina Soriano (David), Ramon Garay Jr, Lisa Garay, Ellie Ross (John), Debbie Howard (David), Dana Bunting (Glenn), Stephen Manger (Ann), Ruben Manger (Cindy), grandchildren Shannon Manger (Denise), Starr Lee, Monica O’Connor, Earl Manger (Nicole), Jacob Manger, Megan Manger, Wade Smith and Sonny, numerous great nieces and nephews, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren and great-great nieces and nephews. Other family is Margie and Larry Henrikson, their children John Henrikson (Erica) and Lauryn Hymel (Adam) and their grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Paula was born in Bucktown, La and lived in Chalmette for 33 years. As a young woman, Paula worked as a nurse’s aide at Charity Hospital. After Clay was born, she was a stay-at-home Mom and later became an insurance agent and supervisor with Schoen on Canal Street. In retirement Paula and Speedy moved to Covington where they continued to enjoy casino- hopping until Speedy’s passing. Paula was a woman who lived life always looking for the finest of things. She knew what she wanted, when she wanted it and how she wanted it. After losing her beloved Speedy, she loved to pass her time at the casino playing her favorite slot machines surrounded by friends she made there. She was generous with sharing her fun at the casinos with her family and dear friends as well. At the end of her life, however, she came to realize the true wealth of her beautiful Catholic faith. It was in receiving the Sacraments that she was truly at peace and ready to meet God. Paula will be deeply missed and forever loved.

The family wishes to acknowledge Dr. Genevieve Maronge and Ashley, NP of Northlake Oncology and the entire Notre Dame Hospice team, especially Michelle RN. Thank you for loving and caring for Paula through her final days in this life.
