Nancy was born in Dayton, Ohio on September 3, 1937. She was the oldest of three children of Ralph S. and Mary Ann Wolfe. She graduated from Dayton Fairview High School, where she was the homecoming queen. Nancy earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from The Ohio State University and was a member of the Beta Nu chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Nancy married George Montag in 1961. Nancy was a compassionate spirit whose passion was caring for others and promoting literacy. Throughout her life, Nancy worked with children of all ages in many capacities, including school room mother, Cub Scout Den Mother and as a leader of Brownies, Girl Scouts, and Campfire Girls. Nancy founded the library at Gettysburg Elementary and worked as the library’s coordinator for many years until the school closed. She also worked in the libraries at Homedale Elementary, Gables Elementary, and Centennial High School. Nancy won the Mayor's Award from the city of Columbus for service to the Columbus Public Schools in 1978. While later working for Cheerleaders of America, Nancy was the face of COA and was a mother/grandmother figure to many who worked there. Nancy had a love for fashion and was known for her signature hair bow. She was devoted to her children’s sporting events.

Nancy could always be found on the sideline keeping the scorebook for her children’s baseball and softball games. As a loyal Ohio State University alumni and fan, she attended all forms of OSU sports, often as a season ticket holder, and her signature tailgates were legendary. Nancy was passionate about family vacations and traveling to visit relatives. She enjoyed spending summers in Maine on Loon Island. Nancy was an avid gardener and took pride in her impeccable flower beds and yard. In addition to her parents, Nancy was preceded in death by her sister, Martha Wintermeyer. She will be dearly missed by her husband of nearly 62 years, George Minty Montag; brother, Ted Wolfe; children, Eric (Susan) Montag, Melissa Montag, Karen (Nick) Beekman, and Eddie Hollins; grandchildren, Wesley (Megan), Harrison, and Laurel Montag, and Spencer and Arlie Beekman; and numerous extended family and close family friends. Nancy’s family also wants to acknowledge the professionals at Memorial Gables Nursing Home and Loving Care Hospice for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations in honor of Nancy’s memory may be made to the 2nd and 7 Foundation, which promotes literacy and positive role models to elementary students while encouraging young athletes of the community to pay it forward:
