Monica C. Farren, of Newton, passed away at her home on Wednesday, October 5, 2016. She was 71 years old. Monica was a graduate of Albertus Magnus College. After graduation, she began her career at John Hancock Insurance in Boston. After one year, John Hancock asked her to move to San Francisco where she lived for over 25 years and moved up to a Vice President position. She received many service awards along the way. Later, Monica returned to Boston where she continued as a VP until she had to stop working due to living with MS and other medical complications including cancer. Monica's strong Catholic faith and belief in the power of prayer carried her through many years of living with MS and other illnesses. She was gracious, loving and was not one to complain. Monica loved a party and to be with friends and family.
