Monica A. Wharton

The heavens brought Monica A Batti to this world on February 9,1929 and she journeyed back September 18, 2021. Monica was Married to Fred Barklow until his passing and they had 2 daughters Emma Ott and Jan Palfini. She remarried to James (Jimbo) Wharton and added two stepsons to her family: Jimmy and Skip. The new family moved to Mount Shasta in 1960 and made Mount Shasta their home.

Monica was the youngest of 11 children born to Valentino and Giaconda Batti. They immigrated to America from Genoa, Italy and started a ranch in Lincoln, California. She is survived by two of her older sisters Mary Jiminez and Angie Straub, her daughters Jan and Emma, her son Skip, her seven grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Monica was a loving soul who always embraced her family and helped all who asked. Old locals remember her as a caregiver, a clerk at Spelzini's Liquor, a cook at The Vets Club with Ray Chinca and as a server at Rays Market Deli. Always working hard, with a smile, and a kind word.

She left this world peacefully at her home, surrounded by those who held her the dearest because of her love for them. The family is not planning services.
