Monica was a long-time employee of the University of Windsor in the Leddy Library. She loved her life and struggled valiantly to stay with us, enduring much pain and hardship along the way. She was a devoted member of St. Mary’s parish where she was a proud member of the Associates, and had many amazing friends who stood by her side to the end, especially Fr. Maurice Charbonneau, Kolleen Fuerth and Jean Dumouchelle. Our family would like to extend a very special thank you to nurse Lori Ranchuk of Bayshore Homecare, who attended Monica on an almost daily basis for over a year and became an instant family friend. Monica was so grateful for the care she received from all of the exceptional doctors and nurses who attended to her needs over the years, including Dr McFarlane Sr. and Jr., Dr. Ahmed, Dr. Quan, Dr. Anees and Dr. Mehta, and in her final hours, Nicole in Intensive Care where she showed care and compassion to the family.
