I am happy that I had the opportunity to know her and she is missed terribly. I will always remember you Polly . Rest in peace

I was honored to work with Polly at Glenridge. Polly always brought joy and compassion to the staff and her residents.
She enjoyed eating ( especially my meatballs ). Polly always had me laughing when we worked together. On Fridays evenings we would make sure the staff had a good meal during lockdown.
I’ll miss Polly and her warm smile.
Rest In Peace my friend

I remember growing up with Polly in Colts Neck, NJ. I was lucky to share the same birthday with her. I remember us having birthday parties together for many years. I also attended Red Bank Catholic High School with Polly.
I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Polly’s Family. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you!

I was honored to have worked with Polly at the Glenridge. We also were friends who shared a passion for our residents and a love of horses. I will miss the twinkle of her eyes, her beautiful smile and infectious laugh. She shared stories about her grandchildren and loved them fiercely. They were the light in her life. Even when I moved back north, there were texts to make me smile. Her life wasn’t always easy but she was determined to make it the best it could be. She was giving and loving. I pray she is at peace in her eternal slumber. I will never forget you. 💜
