I remember her when we both worked at Standard Register. She was always very nice to me. Although I haven't seen her since I left SRC. I am sure she was still a wonderful beautiful person with a great smile. RiP Polly. I pray for her family. Penny Roberson

My sincere sympathy to Jim and the family. Polly was one of the sweetest ladies I had ever known. Always with that wonderful smile and that unfailing love .. I can not think of my days at KAG without thinking of this Godly woman .
May your memories of her comfort you during this time .

I had the privilege of working with Polly as a children's worker at Ketteing AG for nearly twelve years, then was blessed to be her pastor for seven plus years. But, most of all she was my friend, a sister in Christ. I could always count on her as a faithful servant of the Lord and someone who covered me with her prayers. She was a true blessing to everyone who knew her, and now she has her heavenly reward. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim, and the whole family.

I met Miss Polly at Kroger in Beavercreek many years ago. Her beautiful smile and lovely heart radiated everywhere she went. I worked at that Kroger for many years and we became friends, she was one of my best customers. I didn't know for many years that she was my sweet friend Karen's ( from high school) mother. When I found that out I told her that it was obvious she was her mother because Karen has her mother's heart! I retired from Kroger after 42 years and Polly and I stayed in touch through facebook. I will miss her dearly. God has received a true angel. Sending my Love and Prayers to all the family !

A dear family friend and a true woman of God. From the first time meeting her when I was about 15 or 16 yrs old, regardless of whatever was going on she always had a smile on her face and a sweet loving spirit. You will be missed but I know you have the biggest smile ever because of being made whole and sitting at the feet of Jesus.
