Manuela G. Persson, known to many as "Nana" passed away Sunday afternoon, March 21, 2021, at the age of 93. Born June 18th, 1927 in Tampico, Mexico, she moved to New Orleans to attend Soule College. She was preceded in death by her husband Ake L. Persson of 64 years. She is survived by her three children, Rose M. Groth (Jonathan), Linda Persson (Shawnna), Erik Persson, and grandson Daniel Groth (Amanda).
Nana, as she was known to many always had a smile on her face, and was always ready to celebrate holidays and birthdays as she loved to be with her family and friends. She always had a funny story, and always had her door open for friends and family. There are not enough words to describe the beautiful person Nana was and how much she loved and was loved by her family.
