Magdalen Beckmann was born on April 13, 1922, in St. Louis, a daughter of Joseph and Emma (Wichmann) Beckmann. She was united in marriage to Walter J. Monnig, Jr. on June 30, 1945, in St. Louis. He preceded her in death on September 17, 1988, after 43 years of marriage.
Magdalen was a woman of great faith and devoted to her parish. She belonged to many of the Ladies Circles and sang in the funeral choir. She loved to play piano and bridge with her many friends. Magdalen also cherished the time she was near the ocean and found great joy and peace in it.
Magdalen is survived by her son, James Monnig, Bettendorf; granddaughter, Stephanie (David) Buckley, Moline; great-granddaughters, Rebecca (William) Buckley, Butler, Missouri, and Anndrea Buckley, Moline; a sister, Mary Rose Ryan, Tampa, Florida; and many nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, Magdalen was preceded in death by a daughter, Therese Monnig; a daughter-in-law, Katherine Monnig; her parents; a sister; and seven brothers. May they rest in peace.
