Manrique, Anna -
Baltimore - On Sept. 24, Anna Manrique (nee Bens), 88. Ann was truly one of a kind and there will never be another like her.

She was the devoted mother of Michael Manrique, Donna Manrique and Trudy Diehl; dear grandmother of Terri Mellott and James Diehl; great-grandmother of Haleigh Diehl and Eric Mellott.
