Montoya, Sarah - Foster City  
November 4, 1921 - December 28, 2014 Sarah Montoya, retired legal secretary, published author, and the beloved "Aunt Sally" to her many nieces and nephews, passed away on December 28 in Redwood City, California, of natural causes. A mass to celebrate and remember her life will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, January 31, 2015, at Saint Luke Catholic Church, 1111 Beach Park Blvd., Foster City, California. Miss Sarah Montoya was born on November 4, 1921 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the eighth of eleven children born to Juan Montoya and Isabel Vigil Montoya. In her childhood, Sarah contracted tuberculosis and spent many months in a sanitarium. No one would have predicted then that she would live to be 93 and outlive all but one of her siblings. Upon graduation from high school in eastern Los Angeles, Sarah began working as a clerk-typist, eventually earning certification as a legal secretary, a career she pursued until her retirement in 1985. Starting in the late 1940s while she was working full time, Sarah attended night school for 17 years to complete her Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 1964 from the University of Southern California, an uncommon accomplishment for women of her generation and background. Sarah lived for most of her adult life in Monterey Park, California, but spent her final eight years in assisted living in Long Beach and Foster City. Throughout her life, Sarah was a devoted reader of fine literature, as well as a poet and author of essays. Several of her poems were published in the Los Angeles Times (along with numerous letters to the Editor) and other publications. Her column "Word Watching," about the finer points of correct English diction, grammar, and usage, ran for 20 years in Secretary magazine. Sarah's employers, colleagues, and family members frequently consulted her for her expert advice on correct use of English. (Sources: http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=892&dat=19860418&id=UiNTAAAAIBAJ&sjid=QoIDAAAAIBAJ&pg=5662,3936852 http://articles.latimes.com/1986-02-26/news/vw-140_1_dwel). Sarah also was active in the National Secretaries Association (now the International Association of Administrative Professionals), and served for a time as head of her local chapter. A devout Catholic who was also devoted to her large family, Sarah Montoya is survived by her sister Mary Evander of Keaau, Hawaii; her niece Elysabeth Allen of Foster City; ten other nieces and nephews; 14 grand-nieces and nephews; and five great-grand-nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to organizations whose missions honor Sarah's memory, such as the University of Southern California and Catholic Relief Services.
