Ms. Mary “Marge” Margaret Montgomery, of Renick, WV, passed away on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at
the age of 70.
Marge was born to parents Shirl and Frankie Montgomery on May 3, 1945 in Covington, VA. She grew
up as the youngest of five children and attended Frankford High School. Later in life she attended
Concord College graduating in 1994. She was a bus driver for Greenbrier County Schools for 28 years
and retired in 2006. Marge also hung wallpaper and painted working at The Greenbrier Hotel along with
owning her own business.
Marge liked to walk the Greenbrier River Trail and be outside working around her home. She was an
avid traveler and tried to visit Maine at least once a year. Marge loved to take a room in an old home
and restore it to look like new. She loved her grandchildren and spent most of her retired life traveling
to see them. She was a great friend to others and was always looking to help someone in need. She
enjoyed visiting with her close friends in West Virginia and Maine.
Marge is survived by her five children Richard Clark Taylor (Lisa), Paulette Ray McNeely (Rodney), Amy
Maria Stone, Meg Eleanor Sales-Bradley (Jim), and Harold Daniel Sales (Tracie); her sisters, Joan Stern
and Carmen Buster; her brother David Montgomery; and eight grandchildren, Josie, Samantha, Katie,
Jesse, Daniel, Ben, Lillian, and Lola.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Shirl and Frankie Montgomery, her brother Gail Montgomery,
first husband Sam Taylor, and second husband Paul Sales.
Marge will be cremated and her ashes will be scattered in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean off Port
Clyde, Maine. The family is grateful for the condolences, but declines flowers and donations. Instead,
we ask that you hug your mother if you can and remember that life is very short. A memorial service to
celebrate Marge’s life will be planned but details have not been finalized.
