Monique Danielle Gutierrez February 25, 1976 – November 8, 2021

Monique was born February 25, 1976, in San Bernardino, Ca. She graduated from Eisenhower High School in Rialto and San Bernardino Valley College in San Bernardino. Monique was employed by San Bernardino County in the office of County Counsel. During Monique’s school years, she took a semester and studied in Florence, Italy. That experience opened her heart to a world of travel. She traveled in France and visited different cities. She also visited different cities in Italy, Rome being one of her favorite because she had a spiritual experience at the Vatican when she was able to touch the hand of Pope John Paul, as he stopped to bless the group of nuns and students sitting there. She was one of the students. She called home crying tears saying something special had happened to her, but she could not explain it. Monique loved to take road trips up the coast of California and the southern coastline. She always made sure that she took care of everyone’s needs who were traveling with her. She pampered and spoiled us all. Monique also loved to fish. A sport introduced to her by Rohan, her “brother man” as she would call him. She loved lake fishing. Something she did a lot when she lived in New Mexico and here in California when time permitted. She also loved deep sea fishing. Music was her love and everything she did, she did to music. She would cook to music, work to music, clean to music, entertain friends with music, entertain her nephew and nieces and friends with music, attended concerts, loved international music, light opera, country music, mariachi/Latin music, music from the forties through the present day. Whatever you wanted to hear, Monique would find it for you. Monique lived life to the fullest, touching the lives of many along the way. She loved family and family traditions. She loved her friends and their families. Monique was “auntie Monique” to all her friend’s kids. She left quite an imprint on the lives of everyone she touched. Monique will be missed dearly by her family and friends. Our lives will never be the same without Monique and the joy and laughter she brought to us all. Monique will forever be in our thoughts and in our hearts. She is survived by her mother Nancy Gutierrez and her sister Regina Kuruppu. Her nephew/nieces, great nephews/great nieces, aunts/uncles and loving cousins. Monique is preceded in death by her grandparents, Romeo & Nasaria (Challa) Palazzo, Miguel Sr. & Celia Gutierrez, her father, Miguel Jr. (Michael) Gutierrez, her brother Miguel III (Michael) Gutierrez. On Wednesday, December 22, 2021, a Rosary will be held at 10:00 am and a Mass will follow at 11:00 am at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church, 339 N Sycamore Ave., Rialto, Ca.

My beautiful friend Moni ~ you are missed everyday.
I'm reminded daily of your beautiful smile and your ability to light up a room with your humor and compassion. Your love for music, your family, and your friends is unparalleled.
I love you and miss you so much and think of our time in Italy often.
I'm reminded that those we love don't go away, they walk besides us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.

Moe moe,
There are no words in this whole world to explain the beautiful person that you are. I remember you opening your door to your car when you came to my house the very first and last time, you grabbed me and you told me how proud you were of me and that meant the world because you knew my past and you knew my struggles... I'll forever cherish those little moments that you had with my girls remember that you told me that that val was your little angel and that she was your angel in disguise but here on Earth and now you're hers from above ... I love the way you always made me feel I could go months maybe years without seeing you but when I did we always picked up right where we left off and that was the best feeling in the world I'm going to miss that I miss you Moe I love you!!! light one up mama and come visit me from time to time okay love you rest easy baby

Baby Girl,
You were the glue that brought Medinas and Gutierrez' and became a family. I can still see you with your curls riding your bike up and down the street and at times watching Pop's tools while he went to get a part he needed to fix his car. You were happy to do this because Pops was going to get you a big slurpy from 7-11. Every time you would see us sad, you would always say or do something to make us laugh. We can always count on you for that. Pops and I are having a difficult time accepting you are not here with us. We still want to call or text to ask you about something. You will forever be in our hearts. We love you.💕

My dearest sister,
To write this means this is all to real and god I don’t want this to be real! You where my best friend, my protector, my other half! Our mamas alway said we where like to peas in one pod! I was so proud to be your sister and I still am. I will forever be grateful to you, without you there would have never been the Gutierrez and Medina‘s. You brought our families together and you helped raise me into the strong independent woman I am today! I honestly don’t know how to get through life without you I still need you more than anything! But I promise your memory will always live on through all of us! I love you tweety with all my heart and soul! 🤍🦋🕊

My friend.
God knows that I needed you in my life when He brought you to me. What started off as a connection between coworkers, instantly became a wonderful friendship! I am truly blessed to have had you in my life.
Thank you for loving my girls and my grand babies the way that you loved me. Thank you for sharing your life and your stories with me and for being an amazing friend. Thank you for becoming a part of my life and a part of my family!
I will forever cherish the stories, the tears, the lectures, the rides, the laughs and the friendship that we shared. I will forever miss your smile and your laugh. I will forever love you. And I will forever miss you!

To my cousin you were the craziest, funniest and most loving person I know. I know I'm only related to you because I'm married to Lil Henry. But I will miss you dearly. Rest easy until we meet again.

Aunty Mo was a strong and amazing woman. She took care of me when I had no where to go, she lifted my head when I was down. She taught me how to be strong and not let people walk all over me. She gave me the concept of “still be you but don’t forget to take care of yourself”. I will never ever forget everything she did for me. I love you Mo Mo, rest in paradise 🖤
