The passing of a dear friend

Post by Jim_Alaska » Tue May 26, 2020 3:33 am

I am posting this at the request of Rusty.

Montine lost her fight on 5/23 with the cancer that kept her out of the office for the last year. She fought to the very end but was just out matched. Thank you everyone that donated, called and specifically the friends that were able to visit with her. She loved people and most of her life was dedicated to helping just about everyone that she met. She was amazed at the number of members and friends that checked in to say hi and hold her hand. It truly brightened her days.

Thank You

Rusty Blevins

Sorry to hear that. My condolences to her family and friends. Spoke to her a few times over the phone from Florida and met her at the shop when we visited. She told me she moved there from Florida. Very nice Lady.

I’m real sorry to hear this. Montine was a friend to all. What a pleasure it was to come into the New49ers store and be greeted by Montine.

I was very sorry to hear this she was a great person and I always looked forward to seeing her when I would go out to happy camp. She helped me find my first gold out there.

Montine was the club's heart and soul and it wasn't the same without her last season. We are so sad to lose such a special lady.

Montine was one of the sweetest ladies I ever met and she will be missed by many. The office just won't be the same without her.
