Monica Sue Browning

On Saturday October 21st, 2023, Monica Sue Browning left the ones she loved to go be with her beloved daughter Shelby. Monica was born June 17, 1952 in Independence Missouri. She graduated from Kingsville High School in 1970. She then attended Metropolitan Community College. In 1982 she started work at Bendix/Honeywell FM and T as an Inventory Specialist.

Monica married the love of her life Charles Browning on October 23, 1993. They have resided in Lee’s Summit, MO for the past 30 years. Monica enjoyed decorating, shopping, antiquing, and spending time with her husband, daughter and grandchildren. Monica had a unique gift of always putting others’ feelings before her own. She put herself aside to be a part of her grandkids, nieces and nephews lifes, and school activities. Monica always knew the right special gift to buy, the right advice to give, the humor to make us laugh, and the hugs to make us feel safe.

Monica was preceded in death by her beloved daughter Shelby Seiz, parents George and Peggy Bush, Siblings: Renee Bush Curtis, and Kelly Bush, sister in law Martha Bush.

Monica is survived by her husband Charles Browning of Lee’s Summit, MO; son Ryan Browning of Olathe, KS; grandchildren Micalah Lilly of Pleasant Hill, MO, Blake Lilly of Denver, NC and Mason Browning of Olathe, KS; brother Chris Bush of Pleasant Hill, MO along with many cousins, nephews, nieces and friends.

Her love for her husband and grandkids was the most important thing in her life. They could always count on her to be by their side. They will miss her everyday and remember what a truly unique person she was, and how much she meant to everyone.

Approximately one year prior to Monica becoming engaged to my cousin, I had the pleasure to meet her. Charles Everett had mentioned her to me and his interest for us to get together during my next trip home. That decades ago meeting still is as fresh in my mind as if it happened yesterday. We became fast friends! Her smile, humor, caring and hardworking attitude, family first, and dedication to help others matched us perfectly. We began our frequent letter writing from Pleasant Hill to Houston, I have found one of those letters. It is so funny and she ends it asking seriously if I thought she would fit in to our large family. I am sure I replied with a resounding, YES! Over the years, she created wonderful mementos about the Burrus family. The wreath and info box on the front gate of Bridges Cemetery were her idea and design. When we moved to a smaller home three years ago, my daughter took some of her creations to her home. My husband and Monica enjoyed sharing many comical quips whether through phone, texting or during a trip home. As she was planning for her new home, Mrs. HGTV, would send her selections to me to evaluate. It was so much fun. One time, she sent me an image of Charles pointing to the ground at the new homesite. I replied asking, “What is he doing!? She replied, “He’s posing!” As you read this tribute, I know you can think of the many times you had similar experiences, please share them. She was our dear friend, a warrior and someone who loved her family and friends beyond measure. We will miss seeing and communicating with her, but she will NEVER be forgotten. Love you, Heinz and Susan

I’m so saddened to hear this news. I felt like I’d just found you, Kelly and Chris. I’m so sorry I don’t make it over to see you before all this! I love you Cuz!

We send our condolences and prayers to Monica’s family. She was an excellent team member at KCP and used her high skills to keep the supplies updated and sufficient to meet development and production schedules. Her smiles and excellent communication skills enabled customers and team members to smile while meeting urgent needs. She kept contacts with many KCP retirees during her retirement. Monica provided valuable insights and encouragement to them frequently. She will be missed.

I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of Monica. She was a great person, Heaven did gain a Special one for sure.My husband Billy was there to welcome her. In the golden gates and her daughter and other family and friends. I always enjoyed her. Didn’t work with her, but knew her from days at Pleasant Hill when her daughters was in Dance together. Then as times goes we both worked at Bendix/ Honeywell. Thinking of you Charlie and all the family. Prayers for God to give you comfort Charlie and family. I will miss her. Hugs and Love ❤️

I am sorry about Monica I work with her @ Honeywell I will be praying for her family may God bless her and her family Amen Gaynell Cooper
