Polly belonged to the Glade Cooking group and was a gracious hostess and a great cook! She enjoyed singing in many Russian choirs with the highlight being performing at Expo86. She loved gardening and providing family with her bounty. She enjoyed socializing during such activities as bus trips to Reno, playing cards with the ladies, and spending time with her family. Polly was very skilled at knitting and crocheting and cherished giving her handiwork to her family. She especially treasured her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Polly is survived by her daughter, Polly Campbell and granddaughter Mandy as well as her daughter in law Isabel Saprikin along with grandchildren Sherry, Christina and Bradly as well as great grandchildren Rachel, William, Joshua, Mathew, Faith, Dana and Deklan.
