I'm sorry for your loss. She was a sweet lady and she will be
missed today. We loved that Monica.
as well as me that your mother was so very loved. Always a smile on her face, her home always open, and so proud of all her
children. The Mejasich Family was definitely an extension of her family and we will each mourn her passing but more importantly,
will honor and remember her life. May she rest in peace.

Dear Sjobergs, Your mother/grandmother/great-grandmother was a woman of many talents, interests,
and abilities. She was a loyal friend, and although we hadn't seen each other in many years, I heard from her recently
via a phone call, and we had a good time reminiscing. The world is a better place because of her having lived, and is diminished
in her passing. My heart goes out to each of you. Loving wishes and prayers,
I have had the privilege of knowing and growing up with most members of your family. I wanted to let you
know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. May God bless you all. With respect, Lee
Over the past five years I have had the pleasure of knowing
your Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother. She loved to attend the Parkinson's Support Group even after her husband
passed. Everyone at our support group loved having her take part in our group. I had called her in July to see if she was
coming to the picnic and she said yes, but she did not come. We had been thinking of her and then today as our group met,
one in our group told us of Monica's passing. So everyone at our PD
Support Group are sad of hearing of her passing.
She was a special lady. Blessings, Clyde and Carol Cressler
