Mrs. Connie Montgomery

July 16, 1949 — March 31, 2016

Connie Eileen Montgomery, 66, of Upton, WY, died Thursday, March 31, in Sundance, WY. She was born in July 1949, in Gillette, WY to Martin and Opal Hockett. Connie grew up in Upton, graduating from Upton High School. She then enrolled at the University of Wyoming in Laramie where she met and married her best friend and true love, Donald Harrison Montgomery. They were married on November 21, 1969 in Laramie.
Don and Connie made their first home in Seattle, WA where their two children, Don and Tracy, were born in 1970 and 1971. The family then moved to Denver, CO before making their final home in Upton, WY in 1980. Connie worked for the American Colloid Company for several years and then continued her career working for the City of Upton as City Clerk and Assistant Clerk, where she retired in 2014.
Connie was a devoted follower of Christ and a woman of strong faith her entire life. She was exceptionally loyal to her family and friends, giving her all for others. Nothing made her happier than seeing or talking about her grandchildren. She loved living in Upton and was a devout Wyoming Cowboys and Denver Broncos fan.
