After 100 years at 44 Strand in Hermosa Beach, Victoria Marchant Mann went home to be with the Lord on August 31, 2018 at the age of 101 years. She had 7 generations of her family live at her family home.

She was pre-deceased by her husband of 39 years, Hershell "Bud" Mann and two sisters, Ruth Marchant Wallace and Jeane Marchant Jones, and one granddaughter, and one niece. She is survived by 6 children, Virginia Moreno, John Mann, Victoria Weber, Thenell Hanggi, Hershell Mann, and Frank Mann. She also is survived by 23 grandchildren, 53 great-grandchildren, and 16 great-great-grandchildren, 2 nephews, Reece Lewis and John Ralph Mann, 4 great-nephews, 4 great-nieces, 3 great-great nieces and 1 great-great nephew, and 1 great-great-great niece.

Victoria was born in Berkeley, California on June 21, 1917 to Harris and Ada Marchant. In 1915 her Grandparents, Thomas and Anne Victoria Marchant of Ohio, had permanently settled in the area and purchased the beach house. Thomas served as Hermosa's city attorney and municipal judge in the 1920's and 30's. Victoria attended the old Pier Avenue School. In her youth, Victoria joined the Girl Scouts and Job's Daughters, and attended the 1932 and 1984 Olympics at the Memorial Coliseum. She spent many happy holidays at the family cabin in Pine Cove near Idyllwild, California.

Victoria married Hershell Mann on December 27, 1935. They raised their 6 children at the residence. Victoria was active in the Women's Club, Republican Women's Club, the El Redondo chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and served as President of South School PTA. For many years Victoria with the help of her daughter Thenell, she owned and directed the Sand Castle Pre-School at 44 Hermosa Avenue.

In 1973 Victoria gave her life to Jesus Christ, was baptized, and joined Chapel by the Sea of Manhattan Beach and started attending Mount Hermon Christian Camp in Santa Cruz every summer. Much to her joy, twenty-five of her family members have attended Biola University. Victoria was a deeply loving, tremendously generous, faith-filled woman who touched the lives of all who knew her. We will all miss her.
