SACO - Pauline "Polly" Opal Clark Morrill passed away quietly surrounded by family and caregivers at the Landing in Saco on Dec. 8, 2018.

Polly was born to William and Elsie Clark in Danforth, Maine on Jan. 17, 1924. She was the youngest of four children and was greatly loved by her mother, Elsie.

Polly graduated from Danforth High School and eventually worked as a switchboard operator for New England Tel and Tel. It was there that she met George Richmond Morrill, newly home from WWII, and whom she married on March 9, 1946. The couple eventually moved to Machias where she welcomed her miracle baby and only child, Sue Ann Morrill (Rubin) in 1951.

The Morrills moved to South Portland in 1958 where Polly and George raised Sue on Buchanan Street in Stanwood Park. Polly remained a beloved member of the South Portland community eventually moving to Summit Terrace before her move to The Monarch Center (The Landing).

Polly had many life long friends from Stanwood Park and the many other communities she was a part of. She worked as a surgical technician at Mercy Hospital from 1962-1975. She was a volunteer at the South Portland library, an avid swimmer at the South Portland Recreation Center, a season ticket holder to South Portland's Lyric Theater, and a regular golfer at South Portland's Municipal Golf Course. Most important to Polly, though was her role as congregant at the People's United Methodist Church in South Portland where she volunteered, sang in the choir, and was a part of an active bible study group.

Her other most important role was as a grandmother to her two granddaughters, Sarah and Kayla. Polly never missed the opportunity to watch them in their various activities and support them in everything that they did.

Polly was predeceased by her parents; her brothers Basel and Curtis, her sister Goldie, her husband George; and her son-in-law Michael Rubin. She is survived by her nephew Richard Averill, her daughter Sue; her granddaughters Sarah and Kayla Rubin and their husbands; and her three great-grandchildren George, Miles, and Olive.

A service, burial, and celebration of life will be held in the spring.
