Mona Jean Mann was born December 16, 1923 in Woods Cross Utah to Moroni Hatch Mann and Cynthia Elva Waddoups. She was the 6th of 7 children. The family moved to Red Lodge, Montana when she was 2 years old and the rest of her childhood was spent in Red Lodge. According to her, it was the perfect place to grow up. From a young age she roamed freely and had great adventures. She loved ice skating, skiing, and dancing.

On November 5, 1947, they welcomed a baby daughter Kathleen, and two years later October 13, 1949 their family was complete with the arrival of David. Morris and Mona raised their children on their ranch in Burlington, Wyoming. Mona was a hard worker and participated with all aspects of running the ranch.

Mona was active in her church and community and held many positions throughout her life. She continued her desire to be involved even in her later years. At Westward Heights, she was active in their resident group.
