It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beautiful Mom, Granny and Great Granny, Polly Skura, who took her last breath on Dec 30th at the age of 95 yrs.
Predeceased by her husband Frank (1990), and her son Alan (2019). Mom leaves behind her grateful daughters Donna Woodford and Sandy Duncan; her favourite sons-in-law Greg Woodford and Jim Duncan; and her daughter-in-law Debbie Skura. Lovingly remembered by her grandchildren Ken, Jason, Christopher and Shannon. She was also a great grandma to Celestia and Jason Alan. Mom will be fondly remembered by her many nieces, nephews and friends.
Polly was predeceased by her brothers Art and Stan and her sister Rosie, and her parents John and Annie and is in the company of a galaxy of other great souls. Polly is fondly remembered and loved by her sister-in-law, Stella.
Mom had a tremendous fondness for dancing and enjoyed dancing well into her 90s's conquering both the shimmy and the waltz. A fierce independent spirit, she is legendary for walking great distances and riding her bicycle into her late 80’s. It was her physical fitness that propelled her to the age of 95. Mom kept a kind thought for everyone and had a willingness to help anyone at anytime without ever asking anything in return.
In the words of Mother Theresa, "the only thing that never dies, is love." And so it is that Mom/Granny will remain with each of us who carries that love and pays it forward.
In lieu of flowers, please do a random act of kindness expecting nothing in return.
Please note that due to Covid Gathering Restrictions this is a private by invite only event. Kindly leave your condolences online and the family asks for everyone to remain safe.
