NILES – Following a long and brave battle with cancer, Pauline Sophia Montgomery, 82, passed away peacefully, with her family by her side, on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018, at her residence in Niles.

Pauline was born in Harrisville, Pa., where she helped her mother run the town diner and captained the cheerleading squad at Harrisville High School.

She settled in the Youngstown area after marrying Robert Montgomery, with whom she had three children during the course of their nearly sixty-year marriage.

Other than her family, Pauline’s passion in life was her creativity, which she channeled into paintings and other pieces of art that reflect an amazing talent. With her sense of humor, Pauline never failed to leave smiles and laughter in her wake. Her kind nature will continue to be an inspiration to those blessed to have had her in their lives.

She is survived by her husband, Robert; her three children, Brent (Julie) Montgomery, Paula (David) Ovesny, and Michael Montgomery; her eight grandchildren ; two great-grandchildren; and her brothers, Frank Sabin and Michael Como; along with her many nieces and nephews.

Pauline’s family will privately honor her memory.

The Montgomery family wishes to express their immense gratitude to the extraordinary caregivers at SouthernCare Hospice Services.
