Monica Cruz, 41, of Elgin, died tragically on Wednesday, January 24 in Geneva.

Born at dawn on August 16 of 1976; just at the time when everyone was waking up to go to work. The rooster’s song has not been heard yet, but the cry of a beautiful child interrupted the silence. The first born of Antonio Cruz y Maria Guadalupe Rodriguez showed herself to the world. The eldest of four, the one that always helped to look after Armando, Jose Antonio and Ana Luisa.  She played with everyone, never made any exceptions. She liked to draw, scrapbooking and taking a lot of pictures.  Her greatest passion was to sing; but to sing to God was her greatest happiness.  That happiness and love grew when her children David, Ariel, Leslie where born. Everything she did was because of them and for them. Her love towards her children was unconditional; even though the path of motherhood was tough, she never gave up. She always had a smile that conquered every one of her friends whom cherish her. Everyone always with an anecdote that they had lived with her. The great daughter, sister, mother and friend beloved by everyone. In the cold morning of January 24, 2018, at the hour that everybody were on their way to work. Monica’s voice stopped being heard. She now sings with the celestial chorus. Helping us remember her passion for singing.  Now only the best memories, anecdotes and her songs are left to us. We are going to miss you but never forget you.

Monica leaves behind, her parents, Maria and Antonio; and her three children; David, Ariel and Leslie Pena

Visitation will be held at O’Connor-Leetz Funeral Home , 364 Division Street in Elgin, on Tuesday, January 30 from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic  Church, 272 Division Street, in Elgin on Wednesday, January 31 at 11:00 a.m. with Father Jesus Dominguez officiating.  Interment will immediately following the service at Bluff City Cemetery, Elgin.        

Nació en la madrugada del 16 de Agosto del 1976; justo a la hora cuando todos despertaban para ir a trabajar. El canto del gallo aún no se escuchaba, pero el llanto de una hermosa niña interrumpió el silencio. La primogénita de Antonio Cruz y María Guadalupe Rodríguez se dejó conocer a todo el mundo. La mayor de cuatro, la que siempre ayudaba a cuidar a Armando, José Antonio y Ana Luisa. Jugaba con todos, no hacia excepciones. Le gustaba mucho hacer dibujos, decorar el álbum de fotos y tomarse muchas fotos. Su mayor pasión era cantar; al cantarle a Dios era su gran alegría. Esa alegría y amor creció más al nacer sus hijos David, Ariel y Leslie. Todo lo hacía era para ellos y por ellos. El amor para sus hijos era incondicional; aunque el camino de ser madre no era fácil, ella nunca se dio por vencida. Siempre tenía una sonrisa que conquisto a todos sus amigos quienes la aprecian. Todos siempre con una anécdota de lo que vivían con ella. La gran hija, hermana, madre, y amiga amada por todos. En la fría mañana del 24 Enero del 2018, en la hora que todos iban al trabajo, la voz de Monica se dejó escuchar. Ahora canta con el coro celestial. Recordándonos de su pasión por el canto. Ahora sólo nos quedan los bellos recuerdos, las anécdotas y sus canciones. Te vamos a extrañar pero nunca olvidar.
