RUTH ERMA MONTGOMERY, age 88 years of Delta, PA died at her home at 10:56 pm on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 after a lengthy illness. She was the wife of Hubert Thomas Montgomery who died on July 12, 2009.
Mrs. Montgomery was born in Delta on February 20, 1932, a daughter of the late Charles and Alice Matilda (Smith) Bennington.
A lifetime resident of Delta, she was a graduate of Delta High School and a longtime member of Slateville Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed baking and helping her late husband at the family business, Montgomery Mill Supplies, but her passion was growing flowers. Ruth was a member of the Southern York County Garden Club and spent many years growing and tending to many flowers around her home. She was very family oriented and began keeping a journal in the 1960’s in which she recorded the events of her days.

Mrs. Montgomery is survived by;
Three children:
Sandra Goss of Largo, FL
Cynthia (Thia) Starr and her husband, Vincent of Delta
William (Will) Montgomery and his wife, Kim of York, PA

Six grandchildren:

Six great grandchildren:

Further, Ruth and family appreciated her caregivers which extended her quality of life at home in her final years and believe they should be mentioned like family.

Loved the photo of Ruth. She always had a smile. Just days before her death I was changing the beds and put a hand-embroidered pillowcase on the pillow(a design with flowers). This had been made by Ruth and I rec'd it during the Garden Club's Christmas gift exchange. It's true, she was a flower lover of the first order. Her sunroom was a testament to good gardening. She was a special person and will be missed. Bert Jackson
