Who can forget the first time you saw Joan Montgomery?  As a Bryant Jr male, scouting the Clayton girls, Joan was a doll.  I remember thinking she was way too cute for Norton, but he charmed her right out from under everyone else.  Through the years she always was bright eyed and delightful to associate with.  She was quite a woman, and her passing left a void among her many friends.

Joan was a genuinely sweet person. She was friendly, and was always introducing us to new people. She had a spiritual side (not in a churchy way), but she was sensitive, perceptive and open to the spiritual side of life. (Something the rest of us in Jr. High and High School didn't experience or understand, but appreciated about her) She had an infectious laugh, and was always fun to be around. I feel grateful for the good memories I have of our times together and for her friendship.

I hardly knew Joan, but I noticed her as she was a doll. It was amazing as she would always say hi to me in the hallways and I liked that she noticed me. I remember she passed away in March of 1994 as I was reading her obituary in the paper on a flight going to a cruise. That's how I remember.
