Plan Ahead

Mann, Sydney Tipping

June 17, 1987 –
 February 24, 2021


Sydney was born in Dallas, Texas, but her early years were spent in Canton & Lindale, Texas and Los Angeles, California.  She was very active in her youth group at the First United Methodist Church of Canton where she raised money through the church to participate in mission trips to Juarez, Mexico and Guatemala. In more recent years she attended the First United Methodist Church in Lindale.  Sydney graduated from Lindale High School, and attended college in both Tyler, Texas and Dallas and spent the last several years living in Dallas.

Sydney loved to travel and had visited many states and several foreign countries, but her favorite was Oslo, Norway. She loved dogs, fancy foods and fashion, and never saw a Burberry she didn’t like. She was funny, kind-hearted, and madly loved by her family. Sydney’s faith gave her great comfort and she valued her personal relationship with God through all things.

Sydney is survived by her mom and dad, Bill and Chris Mann of Dallas, Texas, her brother and sister-in-law, Mike & Maureen Mann of Dallas, and her sister and brother-in-law Cara & Scott Prentice of Plano, Texas.  She also had many aunts, uncles, and cousins in both Texas and Pennsylvania who miss her dearly.  

Sydney will be missed by all who knew her.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

    What a beautiful child God created for you and Bill. She brought so much joy and happiness into your lives. She was truly an angel. Our daughter,, Jourdan and Sydney met in Kindergarten, instantly, became best friends. There were many play dates and sleepovers. They loved each other so much.. We were so grateful to have had that kind of relationship with Sydney. If Jourdan and Sydney made plans to have a sleepover at either house that’s what happened! I was a second mom to Sydney and enjoyed every minute.

    Wow…what a wonderful child God created for you and Bill.. Sydney was a wonderful child. As chance would have it my daughter, Jourdan, were in the same Kindergarten class. They, instantly, became best friends and inseparable. They had many many many play dates and sleepovers. I was Sydney’s Girl Scout Leader until the family moved to Canton, Tx. I was a second mother to Sydney. She loved when Chris walked into the said out loud “Sydney must be here” and Sydney and Jourdan would come charging him knocking him to the floor all three of laughing and giggly! He would say, “how long you gonna be staying this time” and the two of them would chirp “we haven’t decided, yet. And through their friendship… grew ours. So it’s with heavy hearts we say, “so long and we thank God for blessing us with your presence even though it doesn’t seem lo enough. But now you are resting in Jesus for he is a resting place. To our very dear friends, Chris and Bill, it’s with broken hearts that we offer our deepest sympathy for the loss of your special angel. We pray for your strength, peace, comfort and solace. Ask God for what you need to get through this difficult journey and he’ll supply your spirit.

    With love,
    Chris and Sheila

    My heart breaks for your family. Sydney and I were friends through Paige- my daughter. She was a welcome guest in my home for Oscar parties and always a joy at birthday parties- much like a sweet aunt. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. I pray you will find peace and comfort in the days ahead.

    I have just found out about this and my heart is broken for your family. Bill and Chris you were like second parents to me throughout high school, and while Sydney and I had recently lost touch, she always had a special place in my heart. The memories are endless, too many to type, but I will forever value and love you all as family. Praying for peace and would love to see you both and hope we can do so soon. I am so saddened to hear this news and will miss her so very much and hold our memories in a special place.

    Sydney touched my life only briefly, but she leaves a mark that will be everlasting. She truly was a beautiful person with a beautiful mind, and I will always cherish our talks of economics and how she loved others.

    I met Sydney several years ago. She was an amazing and smart woman. She taught the joys of fine dining and being a foodie. She will be truly missed by all that had the pleasure of meeting her. RIP Sydney

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
