12/27/1965 – 1/31/2019

Alexander (Messer), Monique Semmone of Knoxville, Tennessee, passed away too soon at the age of 53 on Thursday, January 31, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Monique placed her trust and faith in her Savior and Lord Jesus Christ and is now in the loving arms of her beloved Savior.

She will be lovingly remembered by all who knew her but especially by her children, grandchildren and siblings.

Monique was preceded in death by her grandmother, Dorothy Verna Lowell; father, Gene Messer, grandmother, Shirley Newby and mother, Diana Lynn Messer.

Monique is survived by her daughters, Joyce Nicole Streets and Alexis Gene Terry, GA; Samantha Danielle Alexander and Maeghan Joy Messer, TN, grandson, Willie Laquan Brooks, MI; granddaughter, Victorianna Monique Messer and grandson, Lyric Josiah Streets, GA; sister Tamela Mecum and brother Bret Mecum, MI; sister, Danielle Dominique Messer and brother Gene Messer Jr., NY; sister Lisa Marie Shefield, FL; a number of aunts, uncles and cousins in MI, AZ, IN, NC, IA, and many friends in numerous states.

Monique dreamed of owning her own home, growing a beautiful garden, and raising chickens and goats. She had an adventurous spirit and wasn’t afraid to take on challenges. She always searched for and saw the good in situations and people. Her beautiful smile, spunky spirit and deep love for her precious children and cats will be etched on all of our hearts.

A cremation has already taken place and a Celebration of Life memorial service will be planned to take place in Michigan at a later date to be announced.

Monique will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers, any gifts or donations may be sent to Danielle Messer who will be responsible for the care of Monique’s home and dependent children who were still living at home and moving them into adulthood.
