  1. Mrs. Montgomery gave me my 1st job at Gilbraltar Savings. She was a wonderful boss and friend. I have great memories working with her and for her.
    I am so very sorry for your loss.

  2. So sorry for the loss of this very dear lady. I worked with Eva at Gibralter many many years ago. We had a lot of fun times at coffee breaks, lunches and working. One thing I will never forget is what she told me about “arms”. She said, “if I could only take my arms off at night and put them back on in the morning, I could sleep so much better”. I have told people what the lady I worked with said over and over again. Rest in Peace Eva. You will be missed. Sue
