In Memory of Georgia Pollnow

Georgia Helen Gile Pollnow, born May 20, 1945, passed away Monday July 13, 2020. 

Georgia was born in Milwaukee WI to the late Ray and Helen (Swisher) Gile. Georgia (aka Oma) left us to join The Lord with her husband Jan and children Lara, Steven and Tanya by her side. 

Georgia touched many lives, loved life, her faith, music, and most of all her family.  Georgia was an inspiration to many.  She loved to create things, decorate, and never shied away from any challenge. Georgia sewed, cooked the most wonderful meals, and baked, especially her famous peach pie.  As President of the Vernon CT Junior Women’s club she helped create “Safety Town” and enjoyed modeling/sewing for their fashion shows.  She loved to watch her children on the soccer field, ice skating rink, and volleyball court while selling homes to and for many wonderful people in Glastonbury, CT.  In Lynchburg, VA she enjoyed tennis and golf with good friends and was actively involved in the local PEO chapter.  Once she and Jan retired to Seven Lakes, NC she enjoyed singing in her church choir and with Sweet Adeline’s International (The Zoopendous Show Choir and Sandhills Harmony), gatherings and fundraising with her PEO Sisters, playing golf, and cruising the world.   As Oma she attended her grandkids sporting events, plays, dance recitals, graduations and just all around loved being with each one of them. Georgia overcame many obstacles and she met each challenge with grace. 

She will be missed dearly by her husband of 54 years, Jan Pollnow, her daughter Lara (husband Jay) Vance and their children Kyle, Zak, Justyn, Maddie, Tommy, TJ, and Macie, her son Steven Pollnow, and daughter Tanya (husband Darres) Reeder and their children Charlie and Bridget, her brothers Chuck (wife Georgia) Gile and Gary (wife MaryAnn) Gile, sisters-in-law Jill (husband Nick Jewett) Kimball and Linda (the late Russ Pollnow) and her father-in-law Milton Pollnow. 

A service to celebrate her life will be held at a future date. 

The family suggests that donations, in lieu of flowers, be made to the West End United Methodist Church or to Seven Lakes Fire and Rescue/EMS.
