Monica Marquiss Obituary, Death – We regret to inform you of the passing of Monica Marquiss, a dear friend and colleague. She has worked with Little Tractor for for 20 years and is one of the company’s original and longest-serving workers. She adored camping, cooking, hunting, and the color purple, but her love for her family and friends came first. Those of you who knew Monica should be aware of how unique she was.
Our deepest sympathies are extended to her husband Aaron as well as to all of her family and friends. The absence of Monica will leave a significant vacuum in our life, and the office won’t be the same. Here are just a few of our most treasured memories of Monica. Please remember Aaron and his family in your prayers, and feel free to share a story or photo in the comments below to help us remember our great buddy.
She belonged to Shelbyville, Illinois’s First Church of the Nazarene. Brenda liked going to the beach and seeing lighthouses. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, Caroline and Oliver, visiting her daughter Ashley in the south, and having lunch with her twin sister Gwenda and daughter Kimberly the most. Brenda was eagerly anticipating the September birth of her third grandson.
Brenda is survived by her daughters, Kimberly Adamson (John), Sullivan, IL, and Ashley Huber (Jason), Mandeville, LA; twin sister Gwenda Boys (Don), Shelbyville, IL; brother, Robert Eugene Marquiss (Shirley), Vienna, IL; brother-in-law, Jim Stivers, Findlay, IL; grandchildren, Caroline and Oliver Adamson; nieces, Amy Rhoads (Kevin), Ruth Marquiss, Hannah Marquiss; and nephews Clayton Stivers (Mindy), and J. Aaron Marquiss (Monica). Her sister Sonja Stivers, brother Robert & Wilma Marquiss, and nephew Jeremy Cutler all died before her. A special thank you to the nursing personnel in the intensive care unit at St. Johns Hospital for their kindness.
