Monica Mufich Obituary, Death – This is a message that I am sending out with a sad heart. I apologize. Monica Mufich, who had been my greatest friend for the last 36 years, died away unexpectedly on Monday evening. We don’t know for certain what caused it or how it happened, but we think it had something to do with her heart. I went looking for her since she had been absent for a much longer period of time than usual while she was cleaning.
When I finally located her, it was already too late for her. It seemed as if she had sat down to take a break. We have NO reason to suspect foul play, nor do we have any reason to believe that she ever desired this! She is the mother of two GORGEOUS daughters, ages 12 and 15, and she would never, ever, ever, ever abandon them on purpose. I am still in shock, and I have no clue what to say in a eulogy, but I will send one as soon as I am able to.
In the meanwhile, please accept my condolences. We went through life together as best friends. Throughout our lives, there were times when we butted heads and argued, but in the end, we were able to reconcile our differences and remain friends. There were times when it took hours, other times it took days, and yet other times it took spans of years. Nevertheless, we were always certain that the other would be there for us in the event that we need their assistance.
It’s true that she’s been through some challenging times recently, but please don’t allow any of that stop you from remembering the wonderful qualities that made her the courageous, upbeat, and brilliant woman that she was. She would be the first to try to make you laugh when you were upset, bring you your favorite food precisely when you needed it, and come sprinting if she thought it was necessary at any point.
I do not want to hurt her family by giving you more of her tale, so I will just tell you that she had a wonderful spirit and that she passed away far too soon. I ask that you pray for her young daughters as they learn to navigate life without their mother. I suspect that she was going to create a new Facebook account; however, since I am unsure of how many friends we have in common, I would appreciate it if people could spread the information in the most kind manner possible.
Certainly to the people with whom she had experiences like as attending the same high school, working, and socializing as friends throughout her time spent in Iowa, Chicago, Glen Ellyn, and our hometown of Rockford. Because her kids are aware of the situation at this point, the decision to send out any warning was delayed.
