Three years after Mona’s singing performance for the Governor-General and his wife, tragedy struck. On a Saturday night during the Christmas holidays, Mona was driving home when her car hit a patch of ice. It spun around and crashed into a taxi. Mona was thrown against the steering wheel and died from her injuries.

Left behind were her husband Herbert and three children: Archie (17), Barbara (15) and Philip (9).
