Monetta Gregurek

November 25, 1939 — February 18, 2021

Monetta Lee Gregurek, age 81, was a wonderful woman that was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. She passed away peacefully February 18, 2021 after losing her battle with cancer. She was born November 25, 1939 to William B. Hubbard and Julia Tanner Hubbard. She was married on October 22, 1955 to the love of her life, Philip J. Gregurek, who preceded her in death in August of 2020. Dancing was one of their favorite past times, while attending many weddings Monetta and Philip would be one of the last couples dancing to the tradition of how long a couple was married.

Monetta loved to have her family nearby, and was a dedicated wife, mother and Nana. She treasured her husband, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. From arm wrestling with her boys, throwing baseballs in the backyard to helping them work on the grass farm was something she did with love and pride. She embraced every moment with them. She always had cookies and treats out on her kitchen island for the grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her famous sweet ice tea was always fresh and in demand. There were many a mouth she fed over the years making sure they had a “full belly”. Each grandchild and great grandchild had their own special memory of Nana.

Whether it was through her phenomenal cooking (blackberry cobbler, bohemian tacos, homemade salsa to name a few) or her special holiday gift bags that she made for her grandchildren and great grandchildren, she always made you feel special. She was the Queen to our Buffalo on our Barbeque team “The Wild Bunch” and even had her own signature BBQ sauce that was used every year that won many trophies. Joining in on the girl’s group “Beer around the World” only added to the fun and many memories were made. Her participation didn’t just stop there. She spent many a day mud racing with her boys by endlessly videoing each race. No wonder the sign on the back of the “Wild Turkey” race truck proudly says, “Thank You Mom”.

For many years, she was an Avon lady and enjoyed visiting with all of her customers. She mentored all of us with her commitment and success as an Avon representative. She just had a way of making everyone feel that special.

She was a member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Sweeny, TX.

Monetta is survived by her sons and their families: Philip Jr. (Donna), Paul David (Kelly), and Mark Alan (Evette), grandchildren Philip Matthew Gregurek (Tabitha), Christopher Gregurek (Stephanie), Jayson Gregurek (Jessica), Yvonne McKnight (Brandon), David Lee Gregurek, Jeremy Yearout (Samantha), Chais Yearout (Liz), Julia Stock, Cody Filipp, and Cord Filipp. Nana was blessed with 10 great grandchildren: Zachary Philip Gregurek, Bradley Gregurek, Laynee Gregurek, Wyatt Gregurek, Connor Gregurek, Dakota Gregurek, Harper Gregurek, Damon McKnight, Emma Yearout, and Ella Yearout and 1 sweet angel in heaven, Evelyn Jane Yearout. We will forever be tied to our mother and Nana by the invisible heartstrings called love.

Mrs. Gregurek’s grandsons will be serving as pallbearers.
