Mona was the oldest daughter and fourth of 15 children. She grew up in the Lawton area, Florida and Cookietown, OK where she graduated from Union Valley High School in 1955.

Her passions in life were her love for God and her family. She loved talking to others about the Lord. Her home was a haven for anyone who needed a cup of coffee and a prayer. She and her husband hosted a Bible study, volunteered for a home for unwed mothers, and made their lives about sharing God’s love with anyone that was in need. Mona was a mother to all. She lovingly cared for her children, as well as her younger brothers and sisters. Her heart to care for others also led her and her husband to foster many children throughout the years. Later in life she would continue this by watching over her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
