Annabelle “Ann” Montgomery
Nov. 21, 1948 – July 5, 2016

Annabelle “Ann” Montgomery, 67, of Brookings, passed away on July 5, 2016, at home surrounded by her family.

Ann was born on Nov. 21, 1948, in Pomona, Calif. After graduating from California Baptist College in 1970, she became a 5th grade teacher. In 1975, she married her husband of 30 years, Ronald Montgomery. Following the birth of their two daughters, Ann and Ron relocated to Pollock Pines, Calif. where they lived for 23 years. Once her daughters entered school, and always wanting to care for others, Ann decided to pursue another career and enrolled in nursing school to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse. For over 15 years, Ann traveled throughout El Dorado County, Calif. caring for those who could not leave their homes.

After retiring from nursing and losing her husband, Ann moved to Lubbock, Texas to be with her sister, Peggy. Peggy and Ann relocated to Brookings in the spring of 2013. Many may have noticed the sisters around town in their cute, matching outfits. Ann will be most remembered for her beautiful, sincere smile, her many, many friends, her warm heart, and her amazing laugh. Ann loved generously and without hesitation. The world is a better place for having had her in it.

Ann is survived by her sister, Peggy Hopkins of Brookings; daughters, Katherine and Keri Montgomery, both of Sacramento, Calif.; cousins, Hazel, Otis, Diane, Donna and Shirley; nephew, Kevin Hopkins, his wife, Mandy, and their daughter (Ann’s great niece) Ruby, of Mount Compass, South Australia; and her two adorable cats, Molly and Jackpot.

Peggy and Katherine would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Coastal Home Health and Hospice as well as the congregation of the First Baptist Community Church of Brookings.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00pm on Wednesday, July 13, 2016, at First Baptist Community Church, 607 Pacific Ave. in Brookings. A second memorial service will be held at a later date in Sacramento.
