September 26, 1939 – November 29, 2022
Lenora Hope Montgomery left her earthly home for her Heavenly home, November 29, 2022, at the age of 83.
Hope was born September 26, 1939, to Edward and Nora Leona Montgomery in Arcadia, Utah. She lived in Uinta Basin until 1946 with her older sister Lila and husband John Richens in Arcadia, Utah, as well as, with her Uncle Bill and Aunt Gladys Harris in Myton, Utah, while her widowed mother worked in Salt Lake City at Remington Arms during World War II. After the war ended, her mother married Samuel Edison Hall. As a new family, they moved to Layton, Utah, where Hope resided for many years.
Hope was an avid reader and loved sharing knowledge and new insights with family and friends. She had a curious mind and enjoyed learning about anything and everything, including space exploration, history, other cultures, and was especially interested in learning about her Montgomery and McAfee Scottish heritage. She studied the Bible intensely and always had her yellow highlighter and/or red pencil handy.
Hope was a fantastic cook and baker and enjoyed sharing these talents with her family and friends. No doubt, many of you have received text messages with new recipes and other interesting articles, which always included a flower, smiley, or heart emoji.
Hope was a good listener, made lifelong friends easily, and kept their confidences.
Hope received her certificate in Behavioral Genetics and loved helping people better understand their genetic makeup, traits, and why we behave the way we do.

Mom was a perfect example of teaching our family to care for and serve others. Ensuring the un-homed and those in need were comforted and fed was important to our mother. Hope and the family would love, in lieu of flowers, if you would donate to these organizations or your favorite nonprofit.
