Nov 302011

The radiant smile of Sandra Jean “Mona” Maniscalchi was taken from us on November 21, 2011, in Scottsdale. She was surrounded by love when God came to take her home.

She was born on October 30, 1950, and was 61 when she lost her incredibly brave fight with cancer. She was residing in Holbrook for the past two years but had spent the majority of her life in the Valley. Her artistic creativity, amazing wit, and her caring, loving nature will be missed by her many close friends, both old and new.

She is survived by her daughter, Tonia Leslie Mason.

A celebration of her life was held Nov. 27 in Scottsdale, Ariz.
