Monique M. Montano, age 31, beloved mother, daughter, and sister, received her heavenly wings on Friday, May 12, 2017. She was born on May 19, 1985 in Albuquerque, NM. Monique worked in the bar industry as a bartender in the local community. She was beautiful inside and out. She loved giving to the homeless and helping those in need.
