Sarah M. Lamont, 55

Business owner

December 27, 2007

Sarah Magladery Lamont, a Baltimore-born owner of an office interior landscape business in Canada, died of cancer Friday at Uxbridge Cottage Hospital in Ontario. She was 55 and had formerly lived in Northeast Baltimore.

Sarah Magladery was the daughter of Dr. John W. Magladery, a Johns Hopkins neurologist, and Virginia Lane Magladery, a social worker. She was raised in Towson, attended the Friends School and was a 1970 Bryn Mawr School graduate.

She earned a bachelor's degree at Douglass College at Rutgers University.

Mrs. Lamont was active in the Baltimore music scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s. She sang with local bands in Fells Point.

She also taught kindergarten briefly at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church in Bolton Hill.

In 1981, she was profiled in The Sun as a singer of telegrams for Eastern Onion.

"Her humor and sense of theatrics brought joy to others," said her brother, John Magladery, who lives in Brinklow in Montgomery County.

She moved to Toronto in 1986 after marrying David Lamont. She later established an interior planting business, the Planted Earth. She also was involved in tae kwon do and earned her black belt this fall. Her marriage ended in divorce.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Low and Low Funeral Home, Uxbridge.

In addition to her brother, survivors include a son, Connor Lamont of Goodwood, Ontario; and a daughter, Jessie Lamont, also of Goodwood; and two nephews.
