Mrs. Sara Youmans Montgomery was born November 16, 1924 in Swainsboro to Ira Truman and Sallie Mae Youmans. While in school in Jacksonville, Florida, she met Asa Truman Montgomery, and they were married in 1945. The two were married for more than 50 years and to this union, three children were born, Vicki Montgomery, Robert T. Montgomery, and Kim Norvell. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. The matriarch of the Montgomery family, was determined to keep everyone in line. Montgomery was a social butterfly who enjoyed traveling, playing cards, eating out, and chatting with friends. When she wasn’t busy winning at bridge or beating her grandchildren at “spit mouse,” she enjoyed relaxing with Gunsmoke on the television or jamming to Frank Sinatra. In Montgomery’s later years, she mostly enjoyed eating out but could still make a mean cheeseball and potato salad. Most of all, she cherished time with her family and gave graciously to all of them. Her authenticity and generosity are what many will remember about her most. Montgomery was preceded in death by one bother, Tate; sister, Floye, and her husband.
Survivors include her three children; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; six nieces and nephews; and a host of cousins.
Chapman Funeral Home of Swainsboro is in charge of local arrangements.
