I just received a very sad phone call from Mouse Wolven who has been taking around the clock care of Mona during her illness. Mona Carkner passed away last night after a long courageous struggle fighting cancer. We are so sorry for Mouse’s loss and convey our sincerest condolences to their family, friends and community. Tomorrow Mouse and his son will escort Mona’s body north to upstate New York where she will be interred on Wednesday. Mouse told me that he will return to Florida at a later date. This was all the information that I have at this time. Mona, who brought so much joy to everyone around her, will be sorely missed.
