Monique is survived by her husband, Bob, along with their son, Alexander, and daughter, Maya, who she
loved very dearly and was so very proud. She also leaves behind her mother, sister, brother, a niece and
nephews, and a very long list of extended family and friends. Her laughter, smile and good humor touched so many, and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
