Lawton Woman Celebrates 108th Birthday

Posted: Updated:

Lawton, Okla._A local woman who is a pioneer of the Lawton community recently celebrated her 108th birthday.

Roma Montgomery was born in 1905. She's spent most of her life in Lawton, where she helped develop several organizations that are still going strong today, like the Lawton Community Theater.

Her daughter, Zelda Davis, says Roma is best known for her hosting. She's entertained a number of guests over the years, including a few famous people right here in Lawton.

"Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans have also been guests here and quite a number of people," Davis said.

Roma's actual birthday was June 6th.
