Monica Ellen Bendix

Monica Ellen Bendix went to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at St Mary’s Hospital in Reno, Nevada. She was born in North Hollywood, CA on March 18, 1959. Monica moved to Susanville with her husband Chief Warrant Officer (Ret. U.S. Army) Brett Bendix in March 2018 to be close to Brett’s father.

Monica gave up her career in the medical field to become a stay at home mom and home maker working hard as head of the house during her husband’s military deployments.

Monica was a country girl at heart, and an artist. She loved to draw, paint, make jewelry and other decorative items while listening to her favorite country music. She loved to decorate her home for every occasion. Her comfort came from having pictures of family and loved ones throughout the house. Monica loved to post or hang quotes of Love, Family and Friendship which could be seen on most every wall in the house. If words were used to describe her they would be Friends, Family and Love. Monica was also a dog lover. Over the years she bred and showed Chihuahuas and adopted many rescue dogs.

Monica and Brett frequently traveled to visit family and loved ones. Her children and grandchildren were the highlight of her life. She was an avid fishing person and together with Brett and or her son, took many offshore and freshwater fishing trips, most recently to Antelope and Eagle lakes. She was a member of the Lassen Sportsmens Club Junior Fishing Derby Committee.

Monica is survived by her husband of 32 years Brett Bendix, stepson Allen & wife Georgelin, son Karl, Daughter Kristina and husband Nick, and four grandchildren, Olivia, Jaxon, Kaylin and Seth, her brother Glenn McMahan, sisters Peni Carnegie, and Michelle Solorzano.

A Celebration of Life was held at the Bendix home August 8th, 2020.

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
