Obituary

Dora Ann Graham Montgomery loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 29, 2022, in America Fork, Utah.

Dora was born on January 13, 1925, to Bessie Ivie Graham and Albert Graham in Heber, Utah.  She graduated from Wasatch High School.  She married her sweetheart, Victor Ray Montgomery, on February 1,1945, in Heber, Utah, and later solemnized in the Provo Temple.

Dora and Vic spent their early years traveling in the service. After World War II, they made their home on a small farm in American Fork UT, until they settled in Lindon UT, where they raised their family and resided for over 68 years.

Dora was a frugal homemaker serving wonderful meals, baking, canning, sewing, making soap and gardening, sharing her love for others and the simple things in life. Her love of baking, cooking, and caring for others carried through as she began working in the lunchroom at Lindon Elementary and Pleasant Grove Jr. High. Later she served as the Jr. High secretary until she retired in 1989.

Dora was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had a pure faith and lived with humble devotion. Dora served callings in Primary, Young Women’s, Relief Society, Librarian, Ward Director Name Extraction, temple worker, and visiting teacher. She loved the sisters that she visited.  She and her husband Victor served a mission at the Provo Tabernacle.

She enjoyed participating with the Daughters of Utah Pioneers Lindon Camp, serving as the Secretary and other positions.
