She undertook many careers throughout her life including restauranteur, drywaller, stone mason, insulator, kitchen designer, arts and crafts maven, baker, and community volunteer, maintaining a grueling work ethic right up to her until her last days. She was revered by all who met her as a kind-hearted, hard-working, no-nonsense woman.
Family was so important to Monica. During her travels she would stop at any family members house, encouraging her children to do the same. Every holiday was a thing of great importance as it was a reason to gather her family together.
