Monique worked at IHOP for the past 13 years and at The Waffle Shop for many years before then. She loved her job and most of all her customers. As a young adult Monique worked as an advocate for woman who had been abused. She helped many women find shelter and become independent.
On her days off from work she would love to run away and go up North to the casinos with her two best friends Jackie and Jeannie. She had a passion for gardening and grew a Japanese Maple tree that was very dear to her. Monique spent hours reading and escaping into the world of Stephen King and many other mystery books.
She lived and loved life to the fullest and would want the people that loved her and the ones she loved to do the same.
