In 2008, President Monson and Sister Monson celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.

During the April 2008 general conference, President Monson discussed the love he had for his wife in his address, "Looking Back and Moving Forward."

"I thank my Father in Heaven for my sweet companion, Frances," President Monson said. "Although my church service began at an early age, she has never once complained when I've left home to attend meetings or to fulfill an assignment. ...Beginning when I was called as bishop at the age of 22, we have seldom had the luxury of sitting together during a church service. I could not have asked for a more loyal, loving and understanding companion."
