Bartlett Joanna Bartlett, beloved mother, partner and friend, died in her sleep at her home on January 30, 2019. Joanna was born in Chicago on January 11, 1931, and grew up in Harvey, Illinois. She had a lifelong fondness for trains, born in the many vacation trips her railroad family made during her childhood. She married young, and with her husband of 24 years, Jack Bartlett, raised two daughters while moving from state to state for his work. In 1971 she moved to New Mexico, which became her true beloved home. She began what would be a 20 year career as a administrator at the University of New Mexico, while also spending as much time as possible outdoors, hiking, rafting, camping, and cross-country skiing. She made lifelong friends through singing for many years with the NM Symphony Chorus and the Master Chorale. Joanna was a voracious reader and always loved learning, and after retirement from UNM she became perhaps the most enthusiastic consumer in the city of Oasis, Osher, and Continuing Ed classes. She also traveled extensively, through Africa, Europe, the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Russia and Central America. In 1982 Joanna met the love of her life, Donna Dionne, her colleague at UNM, and they spent 37 loving years together,until Joanna’s death. They often traveled together, both internationally and to favorite spots the US. They were regulars for many years at the Clubs spring training, spending a month in their trailer in Mesa, Arizona. Between trips they were happy alone or with family and dear friends at their peaceful home in the South Valley. Joanna’s many friends loved her wit, whimsy, and warmth, and she cherished them in return. She also loved music, the Barelas Coffeehouse, and being near big water; she hated anchovies and long obituaries. Preceding Joanna in death were her four grandparents, all of whom immigrated to the US from Holland in the late 1880’s; her mother Minnie and her father Fred; and her siblings Dorothy, Yvonne and Louis. Surviving are her devoted partner Donna and many dedicated, dear friends; daughter Melissa and husband Angus Macpherson of Albuquerque; daughter Kerry and husband Rich Sutterfield of Denver; grandchildren Hannah Macpherson; Ariel Macpherson Herring, Jamie Acuna, Jenny Archuleta, Jessie Ellis, and Jeffrey Zimmerman; seven great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild. Family and friends will be gathering to remember Joanna in early April. In the meantime, her favorite remembrance would be a donation to Heifer International, or to Oasis Albuquerque (PO BOX 35518, Albuquerque, NM 87176). around Harry Wallingford Harry Wallingford, age 98, passed away on Thursday, December 27, 2018.

Ernie (aka Monty) was born in 1931 in New Haven, Ct. into a family long connected to Yale University. He attended Westtown Friends School in Pennsylvania and the University of North Carolina where he lettered three years in soccer and was named to the Southern Conference (now ACC) all-star team. He received his Masters Degree from Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and studied in Paris and Geneva on a Fulbright exchange scholarship, specializing in African economic and political affairs. His early professional career centered on West Africa where his work was recognized in several books and articles. The eminent CBS journalist, Eric Severeid wrote in his syndicated column and book "THIS IS ERIC SEVEREID" (advising President Kennedy’s Peace Corps organizers) "I suggest the administration seek counsel, as far as Africa is concerned, from Ernest Montgomery. Ernest is a redheaded, easy-going lad from Connecticut. On the grassroots level he was the most effective representative of America I’ve run across in years…He was a State Department Information officer, the only official American among millions in Eastern Nigeria…. He never preached, he never tried overtly to improve the people, he never expected gratitude or even results, so he often got both…He was the type who could drift around the countryside, equipped with sleeping bag and digest the local food. He was full of drive and enthusiasm. He knew more about what was really happening in that big section of Nigeria than any foreigner there…" For 25 more years, he continued working on economic development in Africa and Europe with the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and as a consultant for the UN Development Program, USAID, the World Bank, and private corporations. His loved ones can read his African Recollections at Ending his career overseas (for the most part), he moved to New Mexico (it reminded him of Africa) with former wife Carole, raising their five children here: Kelly, Chris, Andrew, Sarah and Gillian. For many years he worked in the investment business beginning with the local firm Quinn and Co. He served on several boards including Crossroads Africa and Barrett House. In 2009, he retired from RBC at age 78. His family and friends remember him for his kind heart and smile. He was a true gentleman to all. His kindness and generosity touched many lives and his house was always a welcome place to stop by for a visit, a drink, or an extended stay. In his retired years, he continued to travel and make new friends while also reminiscing with those he had welcomed into his heart long ago. He loved to walk his dog, spend time with family near and far, and pay visits to his many dear friends. He is survived by his five dear children, and their partners; his eight grandchildren; two greatgrandchildren, (ranging in age from two to thirty); long-time love, Christine Brennan; her children Aubrey and Christopher; his sister Christina Marshall, and his devoted nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death was his mother, Jean Kaiser from Madison, CT and Corrales, and his father Roger Montgomery; two sisters Sue and Linda, and his best friend Alex Bandy. From age four and onwards his father made him recite ad nauseam the "Ten Great Things" to guide your life…"be kind, work hard, be a good sport, keep your mind and heart open, look at yourself in a little mirror and smile (know thyself), etc. Monty tried, most of the time, to follow his dad’s advice. Ernie, asked that contributions in his memory be made to his youngest daughters NGOs; The Garden’s Edge in NM and Surfrider Foundation, Vancouver Island Chapter.
