Ernestine Montejo Enoch Pratt employee

October 19, 1991

A memorial service for Ernestine Montejo, who had worked at the Enoch Pratt Free Library for 42 years, will be held at 2 p.m. today at the Henry W. Jenkins and Sons funeral establishment, 4905 York Road.

Mrs. Montejo, who was 88, died Oct. 8 of a heart ailment at College Manor.

A resident of Govans for many years, she lived in the Bowleys Quarters area before moving to the retirement home about six months ago.

She retired in 1965 as a secretary in the library's personnel department. During World War II she had worked on a horse-drawn bookmobile and then in the fine arts and film departments.

A native of Benson, she was a 1922 graduate of Western High School and attended the Johns Hopkins University.

As a young woman, she and a friend biked to Point Lookout at the mouth of the Potomac River, often sleeping in the woods.

She is survived by a daughter, Ernestine Sisson of Bowleys Quarters; four grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
