Since then, Polly enjoyed working part-time at Marimor School. A member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, she was active as a lector and in the Stephen Ministry. In her free time, Polly enjoyed keeping her hands busy. Whether it be sewing, crocheting, or making a recipe in the kitchen, she loved to share the gifts of her talents with others. Polly also spent quiet moments in prayer or reading her favorite books.
