Laura Lee Monday was born on September 2, 1939 in Jefferson Davis County, Mississippi to James L. and Margaret Anderson Turnage. After graduating from Bogue Chitto High School in 1957, Ms. Monday enrolled in the Southwest Junior College in Summit, MS. In 1961, she began her career with the University of Mississippi Medical Center and for the next 15 years Ms. Monday enjoyed the fulfillment of serving as an Administrative Assistant in the Department of Psychiatry. While at UMMC, its notable that Ms. Monday transcribed medical records using the Dictaphone, an instrument which was considered on the cutting edge of technology for that period of time. Afterwards, she served as secretary and bookkeeper for the International Association of Bridge, Structural and Ornamental Iron Workers, while also serving as a notary public during this time. Ms. Monday enjoyed many hobbies before her health declined including gardening, swimming, playing piano and walking. In addition, she especially liked to play Bingo while a resident of the Madison County Nursing Home. One of the things Ms. Monday was most passionate about was the home located at 593 Lone Pine Road that they renovated. In 1980, she moved to Canton and bought an old home of which she poured her heart into. This magnificent home was complete with wooden floors, high ceilings and accented with beautiful stained-glass windows that she artistically created herself. Many memories were made in this old home and countless hours passed sitting on the porch of this peaceful abode that she so dearly loved. The family quips that although their precious loved one has passed on, she has left Sonny, the resident ghost of the house to oversee things. With unexplained creaking of doors and floors along with mystical sounds, Sonny is sure to keep family and visitors to the old homeplace perplexed for years to come. Ms. Monday was of the Methodist faith. She was preceded in death by her parents, Reverend James and Margaret Turnage. Ms. Monday's memory will forever be cherished by her daughters, Pamelia Garrison (Robert) of Canton, Kimberly June Ganann (Todd) of Carthage; her son, Jimmie Lamar Hardy, Jr. of Canton; 2 sisters, Norine Guthrie of Pearl, Betty June Olesen of Washougal, WA and 1 brother, Jimmy Turnage (Anita) of Utica. The legacy of their Ninnie will also live on through her grandchildren, Bradley Hebert (Allison), Mason Hebert, Laura Rollick (Nick), Evan Hebert, Josh Hardy (Tracy), Christopher Ganann (Lacie), Marybeth Ganann and Blake Hardy (Taylor). Ms. Monday also leaves behind 8 great-grandchildren. Ms. Monday's family would like to express special appreciation to her special friend and caregiver, Gwen Bunch and also to the Madison County Nursing Home for the excellent care given to their loved one.
