She loved the out of doors; enjoyed trips to the mountains for the scenery and wildlife. Polley was a people person and knew how to make people feel special. She was loved by all who knew her.

A special thanks to her son, Paul, who gave up his employment and life as he knew it to become her 24/7 caregiver for the last four-plus years. Being constantly by her side, seeing her through the many challenges that arose while watching a parent go from self-sustaining to total dependency onto someone else. Bless you, Paul! Thanks also to the hospice caregivers in Englewood, Colorado and Provo, Utah.
