Polly graduated from Laurelton Hall in Milford. She later attended Kaynor Tech and received her L.P.N license. Before becoming an L.P.N she worked at Valley Transportation as a school bus driver in Oxford, CT. She loved singing the “Name Game” on the bus and treating the kids to goody bags. She later worked at The Lutheran Home of Southbury, Fairfield Hills of Newtown, and Crescent Manor of Waterbury. Polly loved to help others and was always the “doctor” of the family. She loved to read Agatha Christie novels and enjoyed any murder mystery shows. She was a Star Trek fan and loved listening to the music of Elvis, Tom Jones, Lionel Richie and Helen Reddy. She loved traveling to Vermont and visiting extended family and sharing her love for the State with her grandchildren. Polly loved going to the Big E fair each year and loved sampling the food from each State represented there. She was always just a phone call away and always there for you. She was a mother, grandmother, sister, nurse, neighbor, care-giver, and friend to many. She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. She will always be in our hearts.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the American Diabetes Association in Polly's memory.

It’s been two weeks this morning I learned of you passing . Each day I wake and I have to remind myself you are no longer here . When the stress of the day is too much or something exciting happens I grab my phone to call you ,then I remember, I can’t anymore. I talked to you almost every day sometimes more than once , now it’s just in a different way.. you were my inspiration, my role model , and you made me the independent, and stubborn woman I am today . I am still in shock, you told me you were going to receive a letter from the president when you turned 100 years old ! We had plans to go to Vermont and Ireland . I love you , I miss you and I wish I could of been there two Saturday mornings ago to let you know you weren’t alone . Love , Lisa ♥️
