These obits are so hard to take. For every obituary I read here (and everywhere), my heart is ravaged for those loved ones who are grieving.

What a wonderful person and teacher Mrs. Montgomery was! My children loved her! She always brought so much happiness to everyone. I loved hearing her stories of when she first taught school here in Marlboro and how it used to be. God bless her may she rest in peace, she will be greatly missed by so many.
