Mary Rose Monjar
Mary Rose Monjar, 63, died September 3, 2019, at her home in Alrington, Tennessee.
Her ashes were buried on September 10, 2019 in the family plot nest to her parents and grandparents at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Maryville, Missouri.
Mary Rose was born on May 21, 1956 in Bellevue, Nebraska, to Henry Chester and Margaret Louise Ryan Monjar.
Mary Rose was extraordinarily dedicated to her family throughout her life. She was predeceased by her parents, Henry and Margaret Monjar, and youngest brother William Allen (9-5-19).
She is survived by her brothers and sisters, Lawrence, Charles, John, Margaret Roark, and Marie Bias. While she never married and had children, she was a devoted aunt to her nieces, Leslie Kurtz and Keri Bias, her nephew, Cody Bias, and her great nieces and nephews, Regan and Connor Gideon and Emma and Sam Kurtz. There was nothing that she would not do for her family or any loved one, and was always a selfless…steadfast, constant, and loyal person.
Mary Rose worked in the laboratory sciences field for her entire career, beginning in the pathology department at Kettering Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. She worked in various laboratories in Virginia, Texas, and finally at American Esoteric Laboratories in Memphis, Tennessee. She was well respected and worked hard throughout her career to grow and make a difference in the field, always focusing on how her work affected every patient. Her final position at AEL was her favorite, not only because of her newfound family, but because of the contributions she made to the company, her associates, and all the patients at AEL.
In the last few years, Mary Rose dedicated herself to helping her local veteran’s center to honor her father and brother’s military service. To further support Mary Rose’s cause, her personal and work family ask that contributions be sent to the following address. Please make checks payable to Mid-South Veteran’s Charities. A formal presentation of all contributions will be made to celebrate Mary Rose’s life. American Esoteric Laboratories, Attn: Human Resources, 1701 Century Center Cove, Memphis, TN 38117.
She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.
