If you knew Polly, you knew she had no greater love than the love of her precious Notre Dame: from attending home football games to tailgating with friends and family, Polly was the most avid Notre Dame enthusiast of all time. She was a member of both St. Mary's and St. Thomas Catholic Church, a charter member of Elcona and Christiana Creek Country Club, head of the United Way Campaign in the 1960's and volunteered in the ER at Elkhart General Hospital for years. The family will receive friends from 10 am to 12 pm on Saturday, May 4th at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bristol, IN, followed by Mass at noon. Graveside services will be private. The family would like to thank The Hearth at Juday Creek and Harbor Light Hospice for their kind and compassionate care. Memorial contributions to the charity of your choice.
