- About Us
Marie J. Polly, 93, of Houston, left us to be with the Lord, Sunday, July 15, 2018.
She was born June 28, 1925, in Houston, a daughter of Pete and Elizabeth Powell Politan.
Marie was a member of St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church, where she was active with the Christian Mothers and Women Guild.
Prior to her retirement, Marie had worked for many years as a supervisor at Troyer Farms.
Left to cherish her memory is her son, John "Chip" Michael Polly, II, and daughter-in-law, Robin; sisters, Lucille Tomsic, and Caroline (Dominick) Dorazio; beloved granddaughters, Lisa Marie (John) Spader, Kerri (Joe) Armstrong; treasured great-grandchildren, Collin Spader, Caden Spader, and Ella Armstrong; many dearly loved nieces and nephews; and devoted family friend, Diana Martik.
In addition to her parents, Marie was preceded in death by her husband, John Michael Polly, who passed February 16, 1988; her daughter, Lynnda Willner; her brothers, Dominick, Pete, and Joseph Politan; and her sisters, Thelma Hundagen, Rosella Finney, and Mildred Martiscius.
Marie's love for life, family, and friends was evident through the exuberance with which she embraced everything and everyone around her. A cup of coffee and a warm meal were "a must" if you stopped by and time permitted. She always had a ready ear for listening and offered words of wisdom from years of life experiences. Marie had a warmth and gentleness that touched all who were blessed to know her, and boundless energy when greeting each new day. She was a beautiful witness to her faith, and instilled in us all to always open your door and heart to a stranger in need because you never knew when it may be Jesus.
Chip and Robin would like to extend a special thank you to Interim HealthCare Hospice of Somerset for their support, and wonderful and empathetic care of "Mom".
The family kindly suggests memorial contributions be made to a charity which you feel passionate about in Marie's memory.
