A long time Warmshowers member, Carol Montgomery, has passed away on December 25th. While we are all still grieving the loss, I did want to provide an update. A public memorial service will not be scheduled due to the ongoing pandemic. Carol requested her ashes be scattered at her farm.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Carol's name may be given to the following 501(c)(3) nonprofits: Hope Rising, Burton Bridge Ministry, The Bugle Boy Foundation, Human Rights Campaign, or a charity of your choice.
Personally, I only met Carol a couple of times around town. She always had a smile on her face and could be seen driving her Model T around town. The rumor was that she built the whole thing by herself. I asked her about that at a community event one time and she said, "actually, I painted one of the fenders, but if they want to believe that I built the whole thing, well that's ok".
She will be missed.
