Obituary for Pauline "Polly" Mae Winn

EDELSTEIN – Pauline “Polly” Mae Winn, 85, of Edelstein, passed away at 4:40 p.m., Sunday, August 18, 2013, at Grandview Care Center, Peoria. Polly was born on August 21, 1927, in Peoria, to Orrie “Zeke” and Bessie (Gilmore) Petty. She married Richard W. Winn in 1946 in New York. He preceded her in death in 1987. She was also preceded in death by one brother, Jack Petty. She is survived by her son, Rick (Lynn) Winn of Edelstein; her daughter, Kris Coryell of California; three grandchildren, Courtney Crain, Amanda Winn, and Ricky Winn. Polly’s pleasure in life revolved around her family and her home. She enjoyed opening her home to family and friends. She loved her children, but her grandchildren were the light of her life. She enjoyed their accomplishments as though they were her own. Her hobbies included gardening; and her yard was her garden haven. She was always willing to care for those around her beginning with her husband and children and continuing with her extended family as well. She was generous with her time and volunteered when there was a need. Polly was a 1946 graduate of Manual High School and attended Princeville Baptist Church. A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, August 23, 2013, at Swan Lake Memory Gardens. Pastor Lee Taylor will officiate. Visitation will be from 5-7 p.m., Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at Wright & Salmon Mortuary. Cremation rites will be accorded following the visitation. Memorials may be made to Alzheimer’s Association.
