Mrs. Montgomery – My Neighborhood, My Home

 Mrs. Montgomery, age 73, has lived in Dayton and specifically in or around the Westwood neighborhood for over 50 years. She followed her then husband who was looking for work.

 

     She continues to work at a nursing home, a profession she has been in for many years. She moved into her current home twelve years ago. She loves her home but as she has gotten older, her front steps have gotten harder to ascend. But with a new handrail she will be safer doing so.

 

     She is part of a large family – eleven brothers and sisters, four children, twelve grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren and enjoys when they get together. She enjoys going to church, singing in the choir, and going to bingo with her friends. Maintaining her home can be a challenge but she has no plans on leaving her home.
