Cloris Montgomery was born February 8, 1962 to John Willy and Earlene Montgomery in Columbus, Ohio. She was a wonderful daughter, mother, sister, aunt, and maw-maw. She attended Columbus Public School where she met lots of people.

Cloris pursued her dream of cooking by attending the school of technology where she received her certificate for Prep Cook. Although there were flaws in her life, there was always more good than bad. She overcame a lot in her life. She loved cooking, dancing, family, fun. She enjoyed her nieces and nephews; some of them were more like her children.
