Frank G. Mona passed away Saturday, March 29, 2008. Born in Omaha, NE on November 6, 1936, Frank graduated from South Omaha High School and later attended Omaha University and New York University. Frank was united in marriage to his wife Betty on October 26, 1957, and resided in Urbandale, IA for the past 36 years. He was the former owner of Mona's Big and Tall clothing chain which had stores located throughout the Midwest. He was a two-time president of the National Big and Tall Clothing Association.
