Obituary

MONICA, Donna J.
Delton

Donna Jean Monica left this earth to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 30, 2021. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, and will be remembered for her legacy of faithfulness.
Born on January 28, 1927 to Loretta (Bourdo) and William Diehl in Toledo, Ohio, she later moved to Orangeville, Michigan where she was raised in a loving home by her maternal grandparents, William and Lena Bourdo. She graduated from Martin High School in 1945.

She is survived by her husband of 75 years, Charles Monica, whom she married on February 16, 1946. They had a loving and supportive marriage their children and grandchildren will treasure as an example to them all. They celebrated their own love and their love for their family each Valentine’s Day by sending generous gifts to their grandchildren.

She is also survived by her half-sister, Evelyn Myers, and her six children: Mona (Ed) Ellard, Gail (Mike) Gibson, Gregg (Karen) Monica, Brad Monica, Marsha (Larry) Veenstra, and Daneen (Victor) Caro, along with eighteen grandchildren, twenty-three great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. Hosting Monica Family vacations for up to five generations every other summer for over forty years, she was truly a matriarch that treasured time with her family. She was always interested in their lives, calling them to check in the status of a new home, a new baby, or an upcoming wedding.

With her six children, she was involved in the daily activities of raising them, like working at the school as an assistant librarian. She was a guiding light to the many children who came to her home as she always maintained an open-door for them. She was also active in leading her daughters and other children in Campfire Girls and 4-H.

As a member of Faith United Methodist Church of Delton for over 50 years, Donna’s heart to serve the Lord was evident through her volunteerism in the choir, women’s society, providing leadership on a new church facility, establishing many activities for children, and hosting missionaries in their home. She and Charles took the word of the Lord to Costa Rica, Africa, Norway, India and Finland through short term mission trips. She served with Habitat for Humanity of Barry County for many years as a volunteer. She loved to golf and play cards as past times, which she shared with Charles, the love of her life. Always a lover of the outdoors, she became an avid gardener and could often be found enjoying the care and design of her garden.

Donna’s commitment to service, family and faith will leave a legacy for generations to come. A visitation will be held on Friday, May 7, 2021 at the Williams-Gores Funeral Home from 4:00-7:00 PM. A celebration of Donna’s life will take place 11:00 AM on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Faith United Methodist Church in Delton, Michigan. Private interment will take place in Prairieville Cemetery. In celebration of Donna’s life, memorial contributions can be made to Habitat for Humanity of Barry County (1215 N Broadway, Hastings, MI 49058) and Delton Faith United Methodist Church: Faith Promise for Missions (503 S. Grove Street P.O. Box 467, Delton, MI 49046). Please visit www.williamsgoresfuneral.com to share a memory or to leave a condolence message for Donna's family.
