Thelma M. Montgomery "Nanny", 86, of Weatherly, PA (formerly of Philadelphia), passed away February 6, 2021. She was married for 46 years to her husband Eugene, who passed in 2002. She is predeceased by her son Eugene Jr., Son-in-law Joseph Bradley, and grandchildren David and Dawn. She is survived by her 7 other children: Nick (Pat), Donna Buck (Tom), Michael (Kathy), Peggy, Kaye, Billy (Kathleen), and Cyndi Bradley. She is also survived by siblings, Alfred and Margie, and dozens of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins, all of whom loved her dearly and kept in touch regularly. She was never lonely.
Her early life was devoted to raising her eight children on Oakdale Street in Kensington and hosting numerous parties and demonstrations. She enjoyed country music, Elvis Presley, playing rummy, doing puzzle books, and watching soap operas. Her later life was devoted to witnessing with immense joy and beaming pride the milestones and events, big and small, of all those in her circle of family and friends. She never passed up a chance to go to a birthday party, baseball game, soccer match, school play, graduation, communion, or wedding. She taught us all how to be an amazing parent, grandparent, aunt, cousin, sister, and friend.
A joint interment of Thelma and her predeceased husband Eugene will be held at Washington Crossing National Cemetery at a later date. At this time, Thelma's children respectfully request that family, friends, and neighbors post stories and sentiments to the Tribute Wall which will be displayed at the celebration of her life on the day of interment. Also, donations made in Thelma's memory to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital would be a wonderful tribute to her uncommon love for children. The family deeply appreciates all the love and support you have given them at this time.
