To All Concerned and Lee,

I am so sorry to learn of the loss of Miss Montgomery. Miss Nona was my Nursing Supervisor when I was an Orderly as a teen at Warner Brown in the 70's. She was an awesome lady and very soft spoken. I learned a lot from her that I utilized when I became am RN myself later in life. I count it a honor to have known her and worked with her. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I trust you can take some comfort in knowing that someone so special to many, will never be forgotten.

I met Nona through my grandmother Peggy Head, whom worked with Nona as a fellow nurse. I enjoyed every single minute that I would visit with Nona, Betsy, and my grandmother. We would always exchange nursing stories from then to now. Nona was always gracious and kind hearted which made for such good company. Plus, Betsy would always have delicious snacks to contribute to the great times we had. I will always remember the time I spent with Nona and Betsy as a blessing. Showing God love is such a precious gift. Glad Nona shared it with me.
Love,
Ashley Head
