Home, and Tulsa City-County Libraries. She was a board member of the Tulsa Historical Society, the Oklahoma Center for Community & Justice, Commissioner for the Greater Tulsa Area Indian Affairs Commission, a former president of the PTA and a Cub Scout leader for more than 10 years. Trepp was a long-time American Indian Resource Center Advisory member and founder, and a proclamation in her memory was presented to her family by the Tulsa City-County Library Commission on June 20. She was posthumously honored by Tulsa Business and Legal News on July 11 at their 2013 Women of Distinction event. Monetta Trepp’s legacy endures, and people across the country mourn her passing. Monetta was an amazing woman, in many ways a pioneer of the preservation of Native American culture. She is survived by her three sons, three grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
