Moore of Beverly Hills, FL and Linda (Steve) Linham of Coshocton; her three daughters, Victoria Reed-Bebout of Canton, Taylor (Andrew) Pierce of Austin TX, and Christian (Shane) Guilliams of Coshocton; her longtime companion, Carl Poland of Coshocton, three step-sisters, Ann Marie (Bruce) Henderson of Philadelphia, PA, Linda B. Linham of Los Angeles, CA, and Heather (Michael) Waldman of Henderson, NV; several nieces, nephews, and cousins; special friend, Megan McCoy of Coshocton; and the father of her children, Doug (Lisa) Reed of Zanesville.

Monica, or mommy as I called her and will always call her, told my sisters Christian, Taylor and I, we could be, do anything we wanted in life. Gave us the gift of encouraging us to find and express our individuality. Embrace ourselves as we were and are. She was more proud of us than anything she ever accomplished in her life. We were her most precious treasures, as she said, the most beautiful, smart and talented daughters ever. And because she said it, I know it's true because she said whatever occured to her without shame. You did not ask her for an opinion on your hair, clothes or anything unless you wanted her extremely honest opinion. I would do anything to hear her again tell me how ugly she finds the vintage 60's polyester garb I often wear... And so randomly how perfect her babies are.
'Momica', as my late husband, Jerry Bebout Jr. affectionately called her, was a Leo and such an empathetic soul that she felt every emotion to its fullest. Not only that but she felt our each sorrow, pain, happiness and triumph. Wept with me genuine tears of agony in the hardest of times and laughed with me like a sister, my best friend and at times clung to me as a the child I once and will ever be to her. Once, as she rummaged through her purse, that I called the garbage pail, through the wads of juicy fruit wrappers and cellophane of Salem 100's, looking for chapstick she could never find, she said, 'everything is nowhere'. I found it wonderfully existential- a cross between the horoscope, Camus and Charlie Manson and wrote the quote down. Still i feel her and know everything is also everywhere. Childlike, the most beautiful soul ever encountered. She loved like a tigress. I have not felt her presence leave, nor will I. The loss of her is immeasurable but the gift of knowing, loving her as a person and mother is just as incalculable. Mommy, Christian, your Pretty Baby, Taylor, your Pumpkin and I, Your Little Queen will always hear your sweet voice in our hearts.

I know it sounds lame, but you fit in our family like you were always there. I'll save dreamspace for hugs, when you show up! We all love you: life won't be the same without our Brat.

Too many memories. 20 years of adventures, laughs, chills, thrills, discoveries, meltdowns & LOVE. She was my touchstone through so much. Words cannot paint a picture of how big a hole her loss puts in my heart. I am forever changed and grateful for her, the family she made me a part of, and all the joy & sarcasm (an art form of hers) that she brought to my life. I love you M. Til we meet again 💜

Linda, Victoria, Taylor and Christian and all the family
There are no words, I haven’t seen Monica
In the last 2 years. But many memories
going through my mind, especially of when she was little. The Sunday’s at Grandma and Grandpa Moore’s when everyone got together.
We older kids, playing with the young ones,
Monica was such a beautiful child. And a funny, humerus adult. A woman who did love her girls with all her might.
May She Rest In Peace and be Reunited with our Loved ones that have Gone Before Us ❤️😢❤️
May You all Find Peace in these Coming Days and Weeks.
Much Love From Cousin
Sheryl Worthington-Guthrie and families
