  1. Monta was my dear friend. We first met at work and became fast friends. I will miss our lunches together and our long talks sitting at her table drinking coffee. I will miss you terribly my friend. I hope God a large freezer with orange pop cycles ready for you. :). I will love you always and miss you forever.

  2. Always great conversations around her table. We talked and she reminisced. Monta had a full and adventurous, wonderful, happy and full life. And a great sense of humor. I miss you. ❤️❤️

  3. Monta, my “newliest friend” is what I called her. We got closer as she approached the end of her tenure at PIT. I never had a better relationship with an associate. I know she was, andis in good hands.
