She was predeceased by her brothers, Wilton  and Herbert (Alice) Bushong, as well as her close friend, Gordon Best.

Monetta was a farm wife who loved to dabble in many things  She drove bus for several school districts including Elida and Apollo and truly loved the relationships she developed with her ‘kids'. She was a member of the Gomer Congregational Church and adopted the Welsh love for music, directing the junior choir as well as singing in the senior choir. She enjoyed performing as well as creating programs for the church. She also enjoyed writing poetry and painting and even published a small booklet of some of her favorite poems and artwork. Pie baking was another specialty with people often requesting her prize winning apple or butterscotch pies. With her larger than life personality, she didn't know a stranger and volunteered her help countless times. At Kessler Estates she served as an ambassador and worked to help new residents feel welcome and at home. She was often the life of the party and will be remembered fondly and with a laugh by family and friends.
