At a young age, Monyuette moved to Niagara Falls, New York with her parents.   As an adult, she moved to Buffalo, New York, which became her permanent home.

In her free time Monyuette enjoyed reading, shopping, traveling and cheering on the Buffalo Bills. She loved nothing more than to spend time with her family of whom she was very proud of. She was especially proud of her son and all of his accomplishment over the years. She will be remembered as a strong willed, stubborn, loving woman.
