Loretta F. Monahan

December 13, 1926 ~ February 14, 2020

Loretta Frances Monahan Born December 13, 1926 and died February 14, 2020. Loretta lived a long life and made a difference in many lives while she was here.

She was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother and mother-in-law. She is survived by her children, James (Kathleen), Carol (Jimmy), Janice (John) and Catherine (Felix). She also leaves her loving grandchildren, James, Tim (Jaima), Katie (Todd), Nicole, Lauren and David as well as her great grandchildren, Teddy and Lucas. Her husband, James, predeceased her.

Loretta set an example for all with her love of education, reading, music and travel. Through example, she quietly instilled the values of service to others, doing the right thing and honesty. A Catholic, she had a strong and loving relationship with God, enjoyed Mass, liturgical music and meditation. She accepted people as they were and looked for the best in all.

Mrs. Monahan was long time, loved fourth grade teacher at Mary Queen of Heaven Elementary School in Brooklyn, New York. She left a lasting impression on many young lives during her years as a teacher. Very recently, a former student posted in a Mary Queen of Heaven Facebook group that she remembers Mrs. Monahan reading Charlotte’s Web to her fourth grade class in the mid 1970’s.

It is fitting that Loretta Monahan died on Valentine’s day. Her love survives her.

Your Mom was so special! She raised such wonderful daughters and they are a tribute to her (haven’t met James, but we are sure he is special, too). We are thinking of you all and praying for you at this difficult time. Much love, Suzanne and Mick Harper

    • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

    • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
