She is preceded in death by her son Jason Scott Charleville; father, John O. Comeaux; brother, Jimmy R. "Randy" Comeaux; her in-laws, Noemie and F.E. "Bill" Charleville, III; and her brother-in-laws, E.C. "Chuck" Anselmo and Robert Andrews, Jr.
Mona was the wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, and friend everyone wants to have. She loved with her whole heart, without condition. When you were with her, you were her favorite person and had her undivided attention. If you had a need, she went out of her way to meet it. She had a kind word for everyone and found something positive in every situation or circumstance. She had a way of shining God’s light on what seemed hopeless.
She adored all children and they were drawn to her. She was surprised when adults approached her saying they never forgot the impression she made on them as 3-year-olds in her “Rainbows” class at church. She had a heart for children and a passion for music. She loved to sing and felt closest to God in Worship. She worried for souls, and never missed an opportunity to share the gospel.
Mona never met a stranger and was always interested in everyone’s story. Grocery shopping with her was a day trip, because of the 46 people she “ran into” and had to visit with. She had a penchant for buying multiples of items that were “on sale” because, well, they were on sale. In one of their last conversations, she told her sister that she should check her clothing closet for food she had stored. Jennifer asked “Why? Are you preparing for the apocalypse?” Mona answered “No, just a hard winter”. We knew we would never go hungry at Mona’s house.
She never missed a thing, and you could count on Mona to tell you the truth, sometimes whether you wanted it or not. If she had a passion for something, she gave it 150% -- there was no half-way with Mona Gail! She is probably laughing hysterically at what we will find stashed in her craft room!
She was faithful and without compromise. She truly loved the Lord with all of her heart, soul and mind, and she longed to meet him. She hated to leave Stacy but looked forward to being reunited with their son, Jason, on the other side.
She was a true friend to all but always made it clear that her best friend was the love of her life, Stacy.
Mona embodied the words penned by Paul the Apostle, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain”, but she never used the words “death” or “dying”. Everyone who passed away simply “went to be with Jesus”. We grieve the loss of her and will miss her terribly, but we know she is finally home, where she belongs.
Visitation will be observed on Tuesday from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm at Walters Funeral Home.
Pallbearers for the service will be Jimmy Comeaux, Jonathan Comeaux, Will Barnhill, Jeff Labbe, Grant Guilbeau, and Kory Landry. Honorary Pallbearers include Steven "Duke" Long and Steven "Connor" Long.
