Mona Jeanne Douglas
January 14, 1935 - February 27, 2017
Mona Jeanne Douglas, 82, of Bloomington, went to live among the Angels on Monday, February 27, 2017 at Monroe Hospital, with SouthernCare Hospice attending to her (and our) every need.
Mona attended Bloomington High School. She worked at Sarkes Tarzian and Boxman’s restaurant. She was also a full time homemaker, raising two children.
Mona was a certified Home Health Care Aide, traveling Bloomington, tending to the needs of elderly homebound individuals. Her two true passions in life were taking care of others and spending time with her beloved family.
Mona was devoted to Jesus and read her bible many times over. She was loved by so many for her contagious smile and her huge heart. She was truly kind to everyone she met. She was an amazing Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandma, and Great-Grandma.
Mona is survived by her daughter, Mary Strader (John) of Ellettsville; son, Richard Lawson (Terri), of Bloomington; grandchildren, Heather Maggard, Danny McCormick (Ashley), and John Strader, Jr. (Amanda); nine great-grandchildren, Austin, Delaney, Caden, Kayleigh, Madi, Coleton, Brody, Tegan, and Mason.
Mona was preceded in death by her parents, Rodney and Mary Alice Douglas; infant brother, David Corigan, a twin brother, and a younger brother.
The family wishes to thank Monroe Hospital, Dr.’s Singh & Roy; nurses, Dana, Helen, Melanie, and Jennifer; SouthernCare Hospice nurses, Anna, Ron, and Erin. Words aren’t enough!
We will celebrate Mona’s life later in the year, when the sun is shining on us all. Memorial contributions in honor of Mona may be directed to BrightFocus.org, helping to fight Alzheimer's disease.
I'm so sorry to hear about your mom she was one of my oldest friends since we met working at the Credit Bureau (wow talk about a long time ago) I kept saying that I was going to stop out and visit her and needless to say never did and now I really feel bad about that. She was one of the happiest people that I have ever known, always looking for the good in everything & everyone. Her joy will be missed.
