Kathryn Sage Montana

kathryn-montana.jpgKathryn Sage Montana was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was known as Sage to most of her family and friends. The second child of Gary J. Montana and Linda M. Nichols-Montana, she was the apple of her father’s eye. Always riding with him somewhere even as a baby. Sage oved taking rides in the city late at night when she could not sleep. She loved people and loved to help others. She had an infectious smile and laugh and she loved to tease and be teased.  

She graduated from high school with the Class of 2004. Sage attended the University of Minnesota and graduated with a BS in Social Services. She also attended the Aveda Institute of Cosmetology in Minneapolis, where she graduated and gave the commencement speech for the Class 2010. Sage moved to the Lower Brule Tribe of South Dakota where she worked at a woman’s shelter. In her leisure time Sage loved to play basketball, bead with her mother, ride horses, sing country songs, and dance jingle at powwows. And above all, she loved to spend time with her son, Mahto. Recently Sage had just accepted a positon as a woman’s domestic abuse facilitator at the Ho-Chunk Nation and was very excited about the challenges that lay before her. Her passion was helping others and especially Native American women and children. 

Kathryn is survived by her mother Linda Nichols-Montana of Minneapolis, MN; her father Gary J. Montana and youngest sister, Marisol Montana of Osseo, WI; her step mother Rachel Walsh of Black River Falls, WI, step brother Xavier Puzon of Madison, WI; her siblings Ian Montana, Molly Montana, niece Sophie Montana-Wadena, nephew Colt Montana-Stout of Minneapolis, MN; her sister Sierra Montana of Duluth, MN; her aunt Lynda Kingery-West of Eagle Butte, SD; uncle Ron Volesky of Huron, SD, cousins Taylor, Tucker, Turner and Tyler; and most importantly, her son Milton Mahto-Luta Spears of Bloomington, MN. She also leaves behind her special daughters from the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation in SD.
