Monica Ann Frisch was the oldest girl in a family of 13 children born to Albert and Coletta (Ball) Sueper on April 19, 1932, at St. Bernard. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Bernard Church. She also attended school at St. Bernard and, following her schooling, she worked as a nanny in Humphrey.

On Aug. 29, 1951, Monica was united in marriage to George Charles Frisch at St. Bernard Catholic Church. They lived and farmed in the rural Lindsay area. Monica was a housewife and mother. She spent her life on the farm, harvesting and living life by the seasons, as well as helping raise livestock. She cooked, canned, baked, cleaned, sewed, embroidered, quilted and gardened. She was known for her wonderful baking and cooking, especially her cinnamon rolls, kolaches, apple dumplings and potato salad.

Monica was a member of the Holy Family Catholic Church and the Guild. She was also a member of extension clubs, card clubs and quilting clubs. Monica also enjoyed helping and working with her daughters at Jarecki’s Greenhouse.

George and Monica loved to travel. They visited Las Vegas, China, Germany and Alaska.

Monica was an amazingly strong and talented woman. She only knew how to work hard and selflessly serve others. She had a quick wit and wonderful sense of humor.

George and Monica were blessed with and raised seven children, along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Monica knew the value of strong family ties and had an unwavering faith in Christ.
