Mona was always proud to show off any new outfits she had gotten, wheather bought it ,and especially if they were gifts from her family. She was a real presence. She treasured her independence, showing us all what she could do IN SPITE of her disability, not what she couldn't do BECAUSE of it. She was a real presence, and will be missed.

The 1954 Class of Champions has lost another member of the group. I so enjoyed talking with Mona at the last class reunion I attended traveling from Nashville to join in. My sympathy to her family. The remaining members of this wonderful class all join in this commemorative tribute.

Mona will be missed at water class. Will not be the same without Mona's clang, clang of her bracelets as we did our arm exercises. Glad she got to see the Cubs win.
