On December 16, 2015 we lost our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, mother-in-law and friend, Marie Montana. She will be missed forever by many people and looked up to as a role model by just about anyone who had the privilege of knowing her. I loved her as if she were my own mother and will remember her gentle style, loving care, concern, modesty and kindness. She had it all and then some. I have no memory of a negative or critical comment toward me, her daughter-in-law. Sandy, Jerry and I all called her “Mom” since there was never a question in our minds that she was like a mother to each of us. She would always say, “Isn’t that beautiful” if you related the most ordinary event to her. Of course looking back some of the ordinary events in life are the most beautiful. Thank you, dear mother Marie, for all you gave and all you were to us. We will never forget you and we look forward to being with you again in heaven.
