Polly was very devoted to the family.  Nothing pleased her more than to have the kids around her.  She was notorious for feeding anyone close by at meal time.  Polly was an accomplished seamstress.  Polly was an avid knitter and the whole family benefited from her skills.

Polly had been an active member of the Old North Church Committee and took great pride in taking care of the lawn and flower beds there while she served on the committee.  In her younger years she was very active in the North Danville Community Club.  Polly followed the sports of all the grandkids with great enthusiasm, and continued to show an interest in all of the great grandkids games even when she was unable to attend.

Polly valued hard work above all else, and had an extreme amount of energy.  Pat and Polly saw a lot of the country as Pat had many meetings nationwide as he was involved in the dairy industry in many aspects.  Polly felt very fortunate that she was able to encourage the love of travel in the grandchildren.
