Patty was so very sweet to me growing up. I remember her making chocolate chip pancakes when I would sleep over. She would tell Susan and I how well we played the piano when we banged out Heart and Soul over and over again. I was always made to feel welcome in their home and loved Patty’s smile and her wonderful laugh. She is remembered today and will be missed. Rest In Peace.💖

First time I walked into Southwest Christian Church there was Patty Polk there to greet me. I'll never forget that beautiful lady dressed in red with that wonderful smile of hers.
