Monica was a member of the “Clubhouse” in Kokomo, and she loved picking up responsibilities and helping others there. She was a member of Crossroads Community Church, where she was a devoted member. She helped serve in the kitchen and loved the Lord deeply and those around her. She was a gifted artist and loved creating art by drawing and painting.

And last but not least, her family member, and companion, who shared such a strong bond with Monica, her dog “Itty”
Proceeding her in death were her parents and her brother, Gregg Sachow.
