Polly’s passions included cooking, laughing with friends, and bragging about her children and grandkids. She always lit up a room with her positive energy and big heart and is described by many as having been a loyal friend. She learned how to cook as a teenager working at a restaurant in Cooksburg, PA. After raising her children, she returned to her love of cooking and became a beloved “lunch lady”. She managed the kitchen at St. Stephens School for 31 years and fed 1000’s of summer campers in her 25 years as Chef at Camp Notre Dame in Fairview, PA.
She spent the last five years of her life as a resident of the Nemasket Healthcare Center in Middleborough, MA. The staff there became part of her family and we are all grateful for their compassion and care.
Service will be at a later date in Pennsylvania.
