About Monica's Life

Monica Denise Russell was a caring mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, partner and friend. She left this world suddenly on July 9, 2022 at the age of 52. Monica was born to Doslin Kenyon and Mervin Russell on 10th September 1969, in Lambeth, London. Before her retirement, due to ill health,  Monica most recently worked as a Social Worker and before this as a civil servant and was a loyal and dedicated employee.  She always worked hard, making so many friends along the way.

Monica led a very active work, social and family life but over the last five years Monica’s battle with MSA meant that she was no longer able to do the things she so much enjoyed. Nevertheless Monica continued to put on a brave face and continue to be the glue that held all the family together.

Monica leaves behind her partner Roland, 4 children, Rosian, Darnell, Nathan and Liyah, and her grandaughter Alaiyah
