President Monson was called to be the 16th President of the LDS Church on Feb. 3, 2008.

Several apostles have made statements in the past regarding the important role she has played in the life of President Monson as she has stood by his side, always rendering her support.

‘She’s given her whole life to this church,’ Elder Jeffrey R, Holland said when reviewing President Monson's 49 years of service in Ghana. "I suppose that if there is a modern contemporary heroine in the church, it’s Frances Monson."

President Boyd K. Packer, president of the Quorum of the Twelve, made several remarks in President Monson's biography about Sister Monson's dedication and the service she has provided to the LDS church.

"You can’t talk about Pres. Monson without talking about Frances," President Packer said. "She’s a wonderful woman. She has supported him through all the patterns of their life.”

President Monson's biography also contains a remark from Elder Richard G. Scott regarding Sister Monson.

"She is so loyal; she would do anything for him and for the work he has been called to do. They certainly have deep love for each other.”
