To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under heaven.” -Ecclesiastes 3:1

Sadly, on August 5, 2019, a beloved pillar of our community was called home to eternal rest with her Lord and Saviour after a long bout with illness.
Judith Ann Montgomery was born on November 7, 1949 in Lynn, Massachusetts. She was the 2nd of 3 girls born to Henry R. Robinson and Geneva B. Robinson.
Judith Montgomery was a lady who wore many hats. Not only did she raise 3 beautiful daughters and share a loving relationship with her partner of 30 years, she also managed to make time to retire from a small company named G.E., served as a member of her Eastern Star local chapter, traveled the globe with family and friends, held many officer positions with various organizations, attended church service regularly and was proudly known as “Nana” to her grandchildren and “Gigi” to her great grandchildren whom she loved on as she watched them grow. Needless to say Judi as many of us knew her did her “thang”.
As a young woman Judi knew she was destined to be successful. She went to work for the local telephone company as she embarked on her journey to be independent. She would soon find her next venture when she took a position with General Electric back in 1972. Judy was a tireless worker until she retired after 32 years of faithful service.
Judith Ann Montgomery accepted Christ at an early age at Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Saugus, MA. She later in life was invited to attended service at Zion Church Ministries by her cousin Joseph Johnson and fell in love with the church family and continued to serve as a faithful member for more than 10 years.
Judi was also involved in various organizations as she was committed to serving the communities around the Boston area with her guidance and tireless efforts to help others both young and old. In August 1991 she became a member of Syria Court No.10 Daughters where she was honored as an Honorary Past Commandress. She also served as Past Worthy Matron of Rising Sun Chapter No.2. Judi not only held it down with the above mentioned positions, but found time to also serve as the Past President of the American Legion Auxiliary Post #45. As a true symbol of how dedicated she was to serving her community, this magnificent woman Judi Montgomery and her life partner Ronald L. Holliman attended the Imperial Council, A.E.A.O.N.M.S. Shriners and Daughters convention annually for 25 years straight. Whether or not you encountered her in the community in passing or saw pictures of her on a cruise or tropical island she always carried herself with dignity and grace.
She was preceded in death by her parents Henry and Geneva Robinson and her first grandchild, TeAsia S. Montgomery.
She leaves to cherish her memories her life partner, Ronald L. Holliman, sisters Deborah Ware, Kathy LeBlanc, daughters Kelley M. Montgomery (Byron), Nicola Y. Montgomery, Adina M. Montgomery, grandchildren, DeAndre L. Montgomery, Dante’ M. Montgomery, Ne’Keisha Roberts-Montgomery, Christopher Roberts, Jr., Kamara Hampton II, Jiamari Hampton, great-grandchildren, Jaron Montgomery, D’Amari Price, Kam’ren Fisher, Aliyah Roberts, Samiah Tucker, Kay’den Sales, Prince Roberts, Teasia Montgomery, Raja Moore, and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. She will truly be missed and always loved.
