Monica attended St. Mary’s Catholic School and High School in Paterson graduating in 1955. She went to work at W.T. Grant in downtown Paterson which led to the path she would take in her later career in the fashion industry. She worked as a bookkeeper and office manager at Gino Paoli in Clifton, Tattersall Ltd and Ann Klein in Hackensack, Lind-Claire Fashions in NYC and Totowa, and Kenar Enterprises in Totowa from where she retired.
Monica deeply loved her family and spent many years devoted to Lou, taking care of him as he had health issues especially later in life. She is survived by two sons. Louis of Graham, NC, his wife Joyce, and their children Alyssa Padmos of Orlando, FL and Justin Padmos of Graham, NC. Her younger son George Padmos of Tannersville, PA, his wife Vicky and their daughter Victoria Janell (Tori) currently in Tempe, AZ away at college. She is also survived by her younger sister Katherine Buniewski of Florida. Monica’s kindness and gentleness, her easy way of being and all that she was, will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all who knew and her.
A Celebration of Her Life will be private for immediate family and close family friends at a future date. The Joseph J. Pula Funeral Home, Inc. 23 N 9th Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360 is assisting the family with arrangements.
