Journal entry by Mike Lorfing

Thank you everyone for your gracious Prayers. 

Monica Lorfing joined her Mother Diva Santanna and her Father Tony Santanna on April 23, 2021 up in Heaven, after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. As a family, we were blessed to have the time to laugh, cry and say goodbye to each other. She will be dearly missed by all the family and friends that loved her deeply.


She met her husband, Michael Lorfing, in 1989 and they never looked back, not only sharing love, thoughts and laughter, but also birthdays! She was a wonderful wife and his right hand. Michael looks forward to honoring her in life by being a great father and future grandfather, and will be happy to join her in heaven when it is his time.


Monica was a devoted mother and best friend to Alyssa Martin, now married to CPT Chancellor Martin, Megan Lorfing now living in Denver and Anthony Lorfing full time Student at UNT. Even since a young child, all she wanted to be was a good mother. Not only was she an amazing mother; a great listener, confidant, and partner in laughter, but also a fearless role model who constantly showed her children what it meant to be strong.


At her request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, please send love and support to Hospice Brazos Valley at or 302 E Blue Bell Rd Brenham Texas 77833
