Luisa Beltrametti, a 45-year resident of Montgomery passed away at home on August 10 at the age of 89. Her only child, Maria, and only grandchild, Mamie, were at her side. She was born and raised in Cordoba, Argentina and our family immigrated to the United States in 1956 and settled in Warwick, NY. Her husband Luis founded his business, Structural Concrete in 1968 and picked Montgomery as his base because it was perfectly situated to service Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties. When I left home in 1976 they established their residence on the second floor of the carriage house where Structural Concrete was located. Luisa was an accomplished cook and hostess with a talent for gardening and flower arranging. She loved shopping and collecting and for a time had a shop of her own at the carriage house, selling antique linens and dried flower arrangements. Later, she became a fixture at the many antique stores that dotted Montgomery in the 90’s, filling in as a salesperson at least five days a week. She was a devoted wife and was at my father’s side every day of his five-year illness. He died in 2005 and she became in her words, a social butterfly, and indulged her passion for fashion by dressing to the nines for functions at the Senior Center, the Red Hat Society and the Garden Club. She was the best mother in the world and she will never be forgotten. The “sayings of Luisa” were “let’s play it by music”, “it’s a doggy doggy world” and “it’s a good thing I was rat pack” and she will always guide me. A heartfelt thank-you to Montgomery Nursing Home and Hospice of Orange County for helping me take care of my Mom.
