Christine Montgomery (nee Ploemacher)

April 27, 1933 - July 27, 2020

Christine Montgomery passed away peacefully after a brief illness at her home in Burlington, Ontario on July 27, 2020. Predeceased by her husband of 47 years, William Hall Montgomery, in 2003, and by her parents, Otto Ploemacher and Johanna Ploemacher (nee Brinkamp), Christine is survived by her twin brother Karl Ploemacher, her three children, Karen (Stephen), Jeffrey (Suzanne) and Amy, son-in-law Paul Martin, four grandchildren, Peter (Sarah), Benjamin, Jocelyne, and Samantha, and one great-grandchild, Wesley.

Christine was born and raised in Rotterdam, Holland and as a young girl lived through the privations and horrors of World War II, including the German occupation of Holland and the devastating Allied bombing of Rotterdam on March 31,1943. These experiences imbued her with a resilience, determination and strength of will that would characterize her for the rest of her life.

In her late teens she emigrated with her family to Canada, settling in Toronto, Ontario where she met and married Bill Montgomery, raised their three children, and worked first as a medical secretary and then as a legal secretary. Upon retirement, Christine and Bill relocated north to Orillia, Ontario where she enjoyed tending her garden, participating in the community of St. James Anglican Church, looking after her beloved cats, and spending time with family and friends.

In her latter years, as Christine’s cognitive functions declined and living independently became more difficult, she moved to Creekway Village in Burlington, Ontario where she received wonderful, compassionate care and was, in turn, appreciated by staff and fellow residents for her consideration, kindness and playful spirit.

Christine’s final resting place will be next to Bill at the St. Andrew’s - St. James’ Cemetery in Orillia, Ontario. The family will hold a private service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Christine’s memory may be made to Lighthouse Christian Ministries in Orillia, Ontario.
