Polly and her husband, Bob, were avid travelers; cruising the Caribbean, Panama Canal and Alaskan coast. They traveled extensively through Europe, Canada and the U.S. Where they spent many years hiking and camping at many national parks as possible. Polly and Bob resided in St. Albans, Vermont prior to moving to Ohio and spent their winters in Key Largo, Florida.

Besides traveling, Polly enjoyed tennis, golf, gardening, square dancing, bridge and entertaining good friends and family in her beautiful home.

In Polly’s honor, please consider making a contribution to your favorite national park or the Holden Arboretum in Kirkland, Ohio, one of Polly and Bob’s favorite local parks.
