Mona Rose Hisey
Dec 27, 1931 - Jan 9, 2012
Mona R. Hisey, age 80, passed away January 9, 2012. Mona was born in Monroe County, Indiana to Albert and Nettie (Shields) Jacobs. She was one of nine children who survived into adulthood.
In 1970 she moved to California with her husband Norman Hisey. Mona became a savvy business woman who was an essential part of their many business ventures.
Gardening, both flowers and vegetables, was an activity that Mona enjoyed. She enjoyed growing flowers to attract humming birds and often kept a feeder out near her window to watch them. She also enjoyed sewing, but her favorite past time was spending time visiting with family and friends. Her home was always open to visitors, including her grandchildren who spent nearly every weekend with her as children. In more recent years, she extended open invitations for her grandchildren to bring her great grandchildren for visits.
Mona was a member of the Women of the Moose since 1997.
Mona is survived by her two children: Roger Sanders, Sr. of Petersburg, TN and Brenda Uecker of Sacramento. Four grandchildren: Jeanette (Victor) McCrum of Elk Grove, Michelle (Jim) Mikesell of Kennewick, WA, Goldie Sanders of Sand Springs, OK, Roger Sanders, Jr. of Lewisburg, TN. Six great grandchildren David McCrum, Brendan Mikesell, Lauren Mikesell, Shawn Leithleiter, Destany Leithleiter, and Alexzander Sanders. Brother Roger (JoAnn) Jacobs of Bloomington, IN. Sister-in-laws Florence Jacobs and Betty Jacobs of Bloomington, IN.
She was preceded in death by her husband Norman Hisey. Brothers Jim, Eugene, William and Andy Jacobs. Sisters Maude Mitchell, Millie Edwards and Margaret Corbin.
