Monika was born April 8, 1971, to James Jackson Sr. and Ruthie Lee Nash in Shawnee. She met and married Christopher A. Moore and the couple had three children. An Army spouse for 27 years, Monika retired after working for the federal government as a human resource supervisor within the Wounded Warrior Brigade.
A homemaker, wife, and a mother, She was strong, capable and tireless, always striving to make everything better. She love to paint and to decorate the home, and whenever the family moved to a new place she worked quickly to make their new residence more than a roof over the family's head, but a warm and inviting place, proper for taking care of a family. Monika's character and temperament can best be shown from the time she had a massive stroke back in February of 2010 until her passing. Monika had every right to cry, be mad, throw things, or even fall into depression after this life changing event; but that was not our Monika she was graceful always, until God called her.
Survivors include her childhood sweetheart and husband of 27 years, Christopher A. Moore Sr.; one daughter, Shaqual Q. Moore, of Lawton; two sons: Christopher A. Moore Jr., of Lawton, and Demontre S. Moore, of Lawton; five sisters and one brother: Melba Maloney (Coy), of Chickasha, Lavon Maloney (Dennis), of Miami, Renee Daniels, of Chickasha, Roleita Nash, of Killeen, Texas, Velita Downey, of Oklahoma City, and James Jackson Jr., (Shnocka), of Jacksonville, Fla.; one grandson, Antwan Twiggs; other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents: James Jackson Sr. and Ruthie Lee Nash.
Visitation, viewing will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct.12, 2017, at the funeral home.
