Monica was always a fun and cheerful person. Paul (Stevenson) and our son Kael enjoyed staying with her and Albert while in Digby. We especially enjoyed a huge feed of homemade Chinese food Monnie made. Rest easy xo

Monica was a sweet soul, with good heart, and was a great friend. I will never forget all of the times we shared. We worked together at Upper Clements Park for 4 years, and she made each day a riot!! Her personality and sense of humor would just lift you up. She genuinely cared for people, and was great at her job. I will never forget you Monica. We remained friends all these years, and even though I didn't see you often, I am going to miss the times I did. We would hug and laugh.... Now I have to say goodbye. Until we meet again...

To Monica's family and friends, my deepest condolences. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was loved by many, and she will be missed. Hold on to the memories that will live forever in your hearts. xo

My thoughts and prayers are with Monica's family at this time. She was such a loving and caring woman. I didn't know her well but she was always so friendly to me. I used to walk by her house and sometimes she would come out and greet me. She would say "Hi Smiley" to me when she saw me. She said she often saw me walking by and said that she waved from inside even if I didn't see her. The last time I remember seeing her was late last summer. We had a lovely conversation and she asked me my name and said she was Monica. Due to the weather I don't walk much in the winter. I was looking forward to the summer and once again chatting with her. Her kindness touched me and she will forever be in my heart.
