Polly was the first library clerk at the Timbrook Branch of the Campbell County Library, where she met many patrons who remembered and missed her years after her retirement; she was known as the “friendly librarian.” She later served on the Library Board of Trustees. Polly loved her family, gardening, birds and reading, and was an accomplished cook and seamstress. She will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.
