For one month in the summer of 1974, Monnie became my traveling mother. She was such a great person. The memories of that trip out west are such a part of my life. I always think about that great experience as I venture to those same places today with my own kids. I can't say enough about what a wonderful woman she was and how totally devoted she was to Hoot and Bret and Bart.
With much Love,

IN 1961 WHEN I STARTED WORKING IN THE AUTO UND. DEPT. AT OHIO FARMERS, CLARMONNA WAS THE ONE WHO TAUGHT AND TRAINED ME.
SHE WAS A HARD WORKER AND ANYOBE FROM PRESIDENT ON DOWN, WHO NEEDED INFORMATION OR HELP SAUGHT HER OUT.
IN LATTER YEARS WE WORKED TOGETHER WITH THE OHIO FRAMERS ARCHIVES, SORTING, ORGANIZING AND DISPLAYING.
WHE WAS A GREAT FRIEND AND WAS ALWAYS THERE WITH A HELPING HAND.
I AM THANKFUL THAT OUR PATHS CROSSED. SHE HAS MADE SO MANY OF US BLESSED BY HER FRIENDSHIP. CLARMONNA WAS A SPECIAL PERSON AND WE WILL ALL MISS HER.

Sending our love to all the Klinect family. Monnie was such a cornerstone of the family and a big part of my life growing up, never forgetting a birthday or other milestone. She was such a great cook, and many of her recipes live on in my kitchen...
