She was gifted with a beautiful voice Polly always enjoyed cooking for everyone and eagerly collected recipes, awaiting her next family gathering. She especially loved sharing their family lake house in Weatherford, with countless parties and celebrations. She was always so excited preparing for a party, sharing the day, and always serving giant amounts of food! Polly loved keeping in touch with her friends and family, and could chat for hours. She loved bible study and fellowship she loved sharing His word everyday!
Polly was an entrepreneur and an antique lover. She enjoyed owning a gift store and a beauty shop for many years.

And today we are comforted, knowing that she is absolutely singing in heaven. We love you “MiMi”!
