Sally A. Montgomery, 76, passed away peacefully at Country Meadows Retirement Community in Bethlehem, PA on Saturday, March 21, 2020. Sally was born January 17, 1944 in Williamsport, PA to the late James and Elsie Montgomery. Sally graduated from Liberty High in Bethlehem in 1961 and earned a BS in Education from East Stroudsburg University in 1965. She taught third grade at Ada B. Cheston Elementary School in Easton for 32 years. A dedicated educator, Sally was also a devoted daughter and aunt. Her favorite holiday was Halloween, and she always made it a fun time for her students and friends. She was quick to laugh and loved music, especially Broadway show tunes. Sally's global travels took her to many places including Greece, Switzerland, Morocco, Portugal and Hawaii. She enjoyed dining out with friends and playing board games and cards. An avid sports fan, Sally especially loved the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penn State football.

Sally is survived by her brother, James (Nancy) Montgomery of Hershey, PA; her nieces, Joan (Shawn) Halford of Needham, MA, Denise (David Urso) Montgomery of San Diego, CA and Michelle Montgomery of Brooklyn, NY; as well as three great-nieces and a great-nephew.

I had her as my third grade teacher at ADA B CHESTON School as well. Just a kind beautiful lady! Prayers and my deepest condolences to her family

As an employee of Country Meadows, I had the privilege of knowing Sally for many years. She had a wonderful sense of humor, loved the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Phillies and would often be heard cheering them on as she watched the games on tv. My condolences to Sally's family. May she rest in peace

My condolences to Sally's family and friends. I have many fond memories of her as my teacher at Ada B Cheston many years ago.

Miss Montgomery was a phenomenal educator, and I count myself lucky to have been instructed by her, circa 1986. She will be missed by everyone who had the good fortune to cross her path.

On behalf of LHS, Class of 1961, condolences are
sent to the family and friends of our classmate,
Sally Montgomery.
