It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Past Auxiliary member Barbara Ann Montgomery, mother to President John Montgomery and mother-in-law to Past Auxiliary President Karen Montgomery. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Barbara Ann Montgomery, 86, of Mechanicsville, MD, peacefully passed away on February 8, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.

Barbara was born on September 5, 1936, to the late John Loyal Guy and Mary Louise Guy in Loveville, MD. Barbara was the loving wife to John Logan Montgomery, whom she married in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on January 23, 1954.

Barbara is survived by her children Catherine Ann Stewart (Skip) of Valley Lee, MD, John Steven “Monkey” Montgomery (Karen) of Mechanicsville, MD, Patricia Lynn Therres (JT) of Hughesville, MD, and Robin Kay Ramos (Joe) of Mechanicsville, MD, grandchildren; Timmy Pilkerton, John Lewis Montgomery (Madonna), Sherry Shubrooks ( Marc), Michael Montgomery (Audrey), Steven Montgomery (Leslie), Jenna Schoolnick (Dave) and Kelci Helms (Robbie), 9 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren with another due in March; sister Jean Burch of Charlotte Hall, MD; many loving nieces and nephews and special caregiver Gloria Barnes.

Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, brother John Loyal Guy, Jr., and her sisters Mary Lou May and Mary Blanche Pilkerton.

She loved to go camping with the Blue Crabs Camping Club as well as family and friends every chance she got. She loved eating hard crabs. Christmas was her favorite time of the year. Hosting family and the many friends that would stop by for a stuffed ham sandwich and a drink made her heart happy.
