Beverly Ann Montgomery, 87, passed away the evening of December 16, 2019 in Conroe. She is survived by her husband, Dr. Robin N. Montgomery, of Richards, TX, author, and former columnist for the Navasota Examiner. She is the mother of four: Joy Montgomery, Executive Director of the Heritage Museum of Montgomery County, in Conroe and co-author with Robin of a book on Navasota, Col. Rosanna Roxi Anderson of Bentwaters of Lake Conroe, Jim Montgomery, retired teacher of Montgomery High School and Teresa Leach of Conroe. There were also twin boys, Samuel and Alexander, who died in infancy. Additionally, she is survived by twelve grandchildren, four great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

Beverly was a master pianist and a school teacher in Oklahoma with a master’s degree in English. While she and Robin worked until retirement at a high school and Southwestern Oklahoma State University, respectively, they also lived four years in Europe where Robin taught in a master of international relations program for US military officers. Beverly was quite at home there as her first language was French and she was proficient in German.

On retirement, Beverly and Robin lived in Richards, Texas where she played the piano for Richards Baptist Church while Robin was music director. Later, they lived several years in Dayton, Tennessee, while Robin served as interim vice president for Oxford Graduate School.

While younger, in addition to being a fabulous pianist, Beverly was possessed of a grand sense of humor and was an accomplished dancer and singer. She adored and loved to be with and help her children and grandchildren and was a master researcher and writer, not to mention a great and versatile cook. She also loved to travel, exploring new areas and embracing new adventures of multiple types.

Visitation for family and friends will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Friday, December 20, at Cashners Funeral Home in Conroe. Services for Beverly are scheduled for 1:00 p.m., Saturday, December 21, at Cashners Funeral Home in Conroe, 801 Teas Road, 77303.
