Mrs. Sallie Maude Montgomery Jeter was born on June 19, 1934, in Shorterville, Alabama to James C. Montgomery and Clora Hayes Montgomery. She was affectionately known as “TT” and “Ma Jeter” by many.
She attended Dothan City Schools and graduated from Carver High School in 1953. After moving to Newark, New Jersey, she married the late Willie Edward Jeter, and this union was blessed with one daughter.
Sallie remained in New Jersey for many years before moving back to Dothan. She retired from Southeast Alabama Medical Center where she was employed in the Environmental Services department.
She always said, “Love is what love does” and lived her life as an example of this phrase. She always helped others and was a special caregiver and friend.
While living in Newark, she joined Way of the Cross Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Upon returning to Dothan, she attended Miracle Temple Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ and later joined Bibleway Ministries Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ, where she was always faithful in her membership.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her sister, Hattie Jones and two brothers, James Edward Montgomery and Willie Earl Montgomery.
“Down through the years the Lord’s been good”
Her legacy continues through her devoted and loving daughter, Barbara Ann Jeter Spann and son-in-law: Micheal A. Spann, whom she called son; grandchildren (her boys): Micheal (Amy) Spann and Anthony (Courtney) Spann; five great grandchildren; one aunt: Ermester Farmer Whiters; four sisters in law: Thelma Montgomery, Suedilla Montgomery, Sylvia Diane Lee and Sharon Barbour; one brother-in-law: Alnur Abdurrahman; a special niece and great nephew: Karen “Peaches” McGuire, and Herbert “Alfonso” Williams and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, church family and friends.
