Mona lived a simple and beautiful life. Though not without struggles, she had an admirable resilience. She met and married her husband Ralph at a young age, and together they dedicated their lives to their five beautiful children, and big extended family, passing down their skills and knowledge through shared experience.
Their love inspired many during the 64 years of marriage they had together. Their house was small but full of love. Food was always ready for anyone who needed a meal, and the door was always open for anyone who needed a friend. Smiles, laughter, hugs, and celebrations were always abundant, as nourishing her family in body and in heart was Mona's favorite pastime.
What Mona put out into the world in kindness, she saw returned to her with the same warmth.
The loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind.
