Monica Lynn Sanders

Monica Lynn Turbyfill Sanders, 64, of Lathrop, Missouri, passed away on April 23, 2022, at her home from cancer.

Monica was born on March 30, 1958, in El Paso, Texas. As a Baptist, Monica’s first priority was ensuring her family was happy and taken care of and would lend a hand to anyone in need. Monica loved to be outside in the sunshine by the water soaking up the rays and pointing out all the different shapes the clouds made. She absolutely loved having friends and unexpected visitors stop by to visit. She enjoyed collecting lighthouse figurines and placing them all over the house. She had a love for her grandkids like no other and she enjoyed bouncing them on her knee every chance she got. Her favorite thing to do was dancing and attending any type of live music event.

She was preceded in death by her father, Ralph T. Turbyfill, Hot Springs, Arkansas.

She is survived by her husband, Benoit J.L. Sanders, of Lathrop, Missouri; sons, Shane Q. Sanders, of Kearney, Missouri, and Joshua D. Sanders, of Dallas, Texas; mother, Vivian L. Turbyfill, of Malvern, Arkansas; brothers, Ronald E. Turbyfill, of Hot Springs, Arkansas, Farrel A. Turbyfill, of Benton, Arkansas, Troy D. Turbyfill, of Benton, Arkansas, and Darwin J. Turbyfill, of Vilonia, Arkansas; she is also survived by five grandchildren, of which were her true joy of life, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

The family requests donations in Monica’s name to your local American Cancer Society, DAV, or VFW.

Arrangements in care of Fry-Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Kearney.

Our Sincere Condolences

I only knew you briefly, but you touched my soul with your warmth. It was like I knew you all along. Rest now your work on earth is done. You’re now watching from above to love and guide us as only an Angel does. Until we meet again Monica.

Oh Monica, I had a feeling that you were gone from us. You were my best friend for a long time. I am so sorry we were out of touch for a while. Still loved you so and thank you for being there for when Brad passed on. I am so sorry, you had to leave us, but you are out of pain and in a beautiful place. I pray your family is OK and God bless them all. See you one day maybe soon. You are now a beautiful angel.
