On July 12, 1978, God blessed Gwendolyn Joyce Baugh & Allen Ray Johnson with a beautiful baby girl, Montoya Jervil Baugh. Montoya grew up and attended Hitchcock High School where she was a member of the graduating Class of 1997. She was PROUD to be a Bulldog!! She also took pride in her work as a caregiver for 22 years and her most precious patient was her mother over the past 13 years. Montoya was such a loving free spirit who never met a stranger. Everyone that met Montoya instantly fell in love with her bright smile and her bubbly personality. She loved to cook and host house parties where all of her friends would gather and have spades tournaments. Most importantly, SHE LOVED HER FAMILY.
Montoya will be remembered by the many lives she touched in her lifetime. On Tuesday February 2, 2021, Montoya gained her wings in Texas City, Texas. She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Bertha Lee Hughes; her uncles, Russell Lee Baugh and Melvin Joe Baugh.
