Monique- I was so saddened to learn of your mother’s passing. Like my sister Lynnette, we both shared watching over you in your younger years (hard to believe how long ago that was!). Your Mom was so special- I thought a great deal of both her and Kenny. May the many wonderful memories you have of her sustain you in the days to come. With deepest sympathy- Kathy Liebing Wilkinson

I'm so sorry to the family to hear of her passing. I met her in my door to door ministry. She often loved to discuss the Bible. Such a sweet lady. Looking forward to the time death will be no more. Rev. 21:3,4 💙

Monique, So sorry to read about your loss. I worked with Jane at Kraft and took over her position when she retired...big shoes to fill.

Monique, I remember your mom and dad back in the day when I was your sitter on occasion. They both were such lovely people. I was just a teenager back then and thought your mom was such a pillar of beauty and fashion with an outgoing personality to go with it! She will be dearly missed. Lynnette Liebing
