Hard at work.
Moved to Morning Pointe
in January 2014.
Mary Montgomery was born in a
small coal mining town, Dugger,
Indiana. She graduated from Linton
High School and then attended a
business school where she learned
standard type, shorthand and how to
use a calculator machine.
Mary grew up during the Great
Depression and worked for food and
shelter as a "hard girl" after her parents
divorced when she was 10 years old.
Mary's first job, at age 18, was at the
Real Silk Hosiery Factory where she
remembers earning $0.10 an hour;
there she worked 10 hour days. After
she got married, Mary had three
children, a daughter and two
adopted children.
After working at the factory, Mary
got a job in Indianapolis at the Eli LIlly
Pharmacy where she worked as a
secretary. The company asked Mary if
she would be willing to move to Cuba
to assist with opening a branch. Mary
remembers ordering there
and was shocked when the waiter
placed in front of her a bowl of soup
with two chicken feet sticking out.
Mary decided that she would not
move to Cuba for several reasons,
including the food and the political
Mary lived in New Orleans, working
at a department store decorating
shop and then in Florida where she
worked for Tropicana. After her
husband passed away she and her
daughter moved to Kentucky where
she worked until she was 90 years old.
