I only had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Elinor Montgomery once, when my husband and I were “dating” and I went to WA to meet his family. From the moment I met her, I fell in love with her. I could tell that she was a loving and nurturing woman. I immediately took to her and have never forgotten her til this day. To top it off, she reminds me of my late great-grandmother, so much so, I have always felt that we may really be related somewhere down the line :). When I heard of her passing, I was deeply saddened because with her departure was the departure of the type of woman that is severely lacking in this day and time. She was a true mother and leader who possessed a quiet strength. I will always remember our encounter and cherish it.
Today, I salute your Dr. Elinor Montgomery. May your legacy live forever.
