Monica A. McNerney, 85, of Sunrise, Florida, passed away on November 14, 2013. The daughter of the late Ernest and Martha Bechard, she was born January 14, 1928 in Champlain, New York. Monica graduated from Albany Business College and moved to Washington, D.C. where she worked as a secretary and met her husband of 58 years, John J. (Jack) McNerney. Monica and Jack lived in Silver Spring, Maryland until a few years ago, when they moved to Florida.

Monica was afflicted with multiple sclerosis and endured many medical hardships. Still, she has always put the needs of others ahead of herself. A devout member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Monica's life revolved around her family and her faith. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, she carried herself with grace, dignity, and strength.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Jack McNerney of Sunrise, Florida; her children, Jack McNerney, Jr. and wife, Katrina, of Tucson, Arizona; Karen Hill and husband Jim, of Pittsford, New York; Neal McNerney and wife, Rose Ann, of Pembroke Pines, Florida; Mark McNerney and wife, Meredith, of Ijamsville, Maryland; Steve McNerney and wife, Ronya, of Frederick, Maryland; grandchildren Nikki, Monica, Steffi, Kelly, Alex, Natalie, Meghan, Danielle, Kaitlyn and Ryan; sisters Marielle Sienkiewicz of Fairport, New York, Carmen Upson of Salt Lake City, Utah, Ann Miller and husband, Gordon, of McLean, Virginia; brother Rene Bechard and wife Bernadette of Champlain, New York; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Monica was preceded in death by her brother Gerald Bechard, and sisters Veronica Bechard and Marquise Bender.

Friends and family will be received 3 to 5 and 7 to 9 on Friday, November 22, 2013 at Collins Funeral Home, 500 University Boulevard West, Silver Spring, Maryland where a Vigil Prayer will be held at 8:45 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 12319 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, Maryland. Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested memorial contributions be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
