Virginia “Ginny” Catherine Montllor, 91, of Scotch Plains, New Jersey, passed away on September 18, 2016 in Beverly, Massachusetts after a short illness. Final arrangements will be private.

Mrs. Montllor was born in South Orange, New Jersey on February 3, 1925 to the late Harold and Martha Hirsh. She went to school in South Orange, graduating from Columbia High School. She danced in the famous Radio City Music Hall Corps de Ballet and was a talented artist. She graduated from Douglass College with a bachelor of arts.

She married the late James Arthur Montllor, of Bogota, New Jersey on June 3, 1947. She lived in northern New Jersey nearly her entire life including 57 years in Scotch Plains.

Mrs. Montllor is preceded in death by her husband, her brother Warren, of Appleton, Wisconsin, and by daughter-in-law Lenore Montllor, of Scotch Plains, New Jersey.

She is survived by son Gregory Montllor, and his wife Sarah, of Escondido, California; son Peter Montllor, of Scotch Plains, New Jersey; granddaughter Jessie Gigliotti, husband Marc, her great granddaughter Addison, of Middleton, Massachusetts; and step-grandsons John Goodwin, Lakeside California, and Robert Goodwin, Escondido, California.

In lieu of flowers, Virginia Montllor would have loved nothing more than to support the Alzheimer's Association. She did not personally have this disease yet was one in which she felt passionate about finding a cure. Please feel free to donate in her honor to:

Such a caregiver she must have been! Peter always told me about her. I am so very sorry for your loss. He and the entire family will surely miss her. RIP, Virginia. Barbara Chanes
Jessie and Marc I am so sorry for your loss. I would have loved to see her dance. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love Aunt Becky
Pete, So sorry to hear about your loss. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Jim O'Donnell
Peter, Your Mom was a character and a unique soul. I was honored to hear stories about her while we were at FEI and then to get to meet and know her later on. She was so loved. Our thoughts are with you and the family. Much love to you, Jackie Major
Remembering my Aunt Ginny as an intelligent and stylish woman who loved books and art and who made such a classically rich home that I so enjoyed to visit growing up. There was an impish way she smiled with her eyes, especially when laughing, and a graceful way she positioned her hands (maybe from dance?) that will remain with me, as well as her dear cards and notes through the years. I felt loved as a niece by Ginny and am thankful for her life. --Christine (Chrissy) Gold
