Joanna Kay Monks Lacy passed away into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior on April 13, 2019. Joanna was born on September 13, 1945 to her parents, Sylvanus N. Monks and Julia M. Whitinger-Monks in Lafayette, Indiana.
Joanna will be remembered as a dedicated servant to her Lord and Savior and the First United Methodist Children’s Ministry. She was so proud of her lovely daughters. They were four independent, super daughters. Joanna had many talents and personal achievements including winning “Miss Personality” in the 1961 Miss Fort Worth contest. She had a servant’s heart and was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend to all who knew her.
