Mtn. Green, Utah – Judy passed away peacefully on Jan. 10, 2017, at her home surrounded by her family.
She is the sixth child born to Ellen Lucille Harrison and Leland James Montgomery. Mom was raised in Huntsville, Utah, which holds many fond memories. Mom was very fortunate to love two men in her life. On Sept. 10, 1959, she married Garth Stanley Ferrin. To this union were born two children, Becky and Stan. Garth was tragically killed in an automobile accident on April 13, 1963. After Garth’s death, Mom fell in love with a family friend, Robert Warner Poll, and on Aug. 8, 1964, they were married. They then added six more children to their family: Sandey, Clint, Val, Sharon, Dominic and Jennifer.
She is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and held many callings in the Primary, Young Women and Relief Society. In 1992, she served with Dad when he was called to be president of the Michigan Detroit Mission. After Dad retired, they chose to serve another mission in Independence, Missouri, as the director of the visitors’ center. After returning from Independence, they served in the Ogden Temple as ordinance workers until it was closed for remodeling. Mom was very excited to return when it reopened in 2014. She served as a sealing coordinator until last summer, when her health declined. Mom also served as the scribe for Dad’s patriarchal blessings.
Judy is survived by her husband of 52 years, and a great posterity of eight children and their spouses: Becky (Brad) Francis, Stan (Lisa) Ferrin, Sandey (Tom) Johansen, Clint (Kelli) Poll, Val (Heather) Poll, Sharon (Troy) Toone, Dominic (Rachel) Poll and Jennifer (Matthew) Miller. There are 49 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren with two more great-granddaughters to be added very soon.
Mom is also survived by her siblings: Joyce Montgomery, Charlene Grover, Lee Ann (Mark) Fuller, Anita Ferrin, Fran (John) Oliver, Neva (Ross) Wangsgard, Rhea (Bryan) Schade, and Dennis (Kathy) Montgomery. Also Jean Wadman, Rich (Wendy) Poll, Kent (Ellen) Poll, Calvin (D’Lynn) Poll, Dennis (Jill) Poll, Shelly (Steve) Hopkin, Tammy (Dave) Siebert, Darlene Bates, Wilma Ferrin, Rex Ferrin, and Conrad (Kristen) Ferrin.
The family would like to thank IHC Hospice staff, especially Russell, for their care and concern.
