Julia M. Montgomery, 100, died Monday, Nov. 21, 2011, at the Lutheran Home at Kane.
Born Dec. 24, 1910, in Kane, she was a daughter of the late John and Rose Scuro Montour.
Mrs. Montgomery had been employed at various times at Holgates, Houston Electronics, and the former Market Basket. She was a graduate of the Kane High School Class of 1930.
As a Volunteer, she worked at many places, including the American Red Cross Blood Bank, the Lutheran Home at Kane, the Community Hospital Gift Shop and the Meals on Wheels program.
Dr. Ken Langille was quite happy practicing medicine as a physician in a small town in his native Nova Scotia, Canada.
This feeling of euphoria came to an unexpected end when the local hospital closed its doors.
Langille had to explore other options to continue to practice medicine.
â€śI decided to look around and see whatâ€™s available,â€ť Langille said.
His search brought him to Kane and the Kane Community Hospital in 1994. He looked at other opportunities in the U.S. before finally deciding on Kane as his new home. He opened his practice in Kane on Oct. 10, 1995.
