Noma Louise (Scott) Montgomery was born September 24, 1924 to Oscar and Leta (Williams) Scott in Long Lane, MO. She departed this life at Colonial Springs Healthcare Center in Buffalo, MO on March 18th, 2020.
Noma was baptized at an early age and was a lifelong member of First Christian Church in Buffalo. She was also an active member of the Christian Women’s Fellowship.
Noma married Harold Montgomery on May 10, 1946, and she loved him well as his devoted and supportive wife for over seventy-three years. Harold and Noma had two daughters, Jeanne (Stephens) and Suzanne (Morgans).
Throughout her life, Noma enjoyed bowling, gardening, fishing with Harold, cooking, sewing and crossword puzzles. Her most treasured times were spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She truly made each family member feel special and loved, whether it be through spending time playing games or coloring, fixing a special request of cashew chicken or butterscotch pie, or sincere and meaningful conversation.
Noma was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. Her love and dedication to her family will not be forgotten, and the family finds comfort knowing she is at peace.
