Obituary

Donahoe, Pauline (Polly)

With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Polly on April 20, 2021 at Fairview Manor, Almonte, Ontario.
Apolonia Sprlak was born on December 11, 1925 in a small village in Slovakia.  With her father in Canada looking for work, she was raised by relatives due to the death of her mother when Polly was 6 months old.  At the age of 9, Polly crossed Europe, the Atlantic Ocean and Canada to join her father in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta.
She met her husband Bruce Donahoe (deceased) when he walked into the post office where she worked to mail a letter.  After a whirlwind courtship, Polly moved to Ottawa where she and Bruce married. She was the beloved mother of the late Gordon (Kathryn), Karen (late George), Bernice (Kent), the late Richard (Chris) and Jennifer.  She was adored by her 8 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Polly was an accomplished seamstress to her children.  She will be remembered by her grandchildren for her ready supply of homemade cookies and her pancakes.  On retirement, she learned to knit and play bridge, making many new friends in the process.  She also enjoyed the years she spent volunteering at The Hub.
The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff of Old Mill for the love and care they gave our mother during her stay.
Due to Covid restrictions, a celebration of Polly’s life will be held in the individual hearts of family and friends. Donations in memory of Polly may be made to the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation.

Dear Jenn and family,
Polly was very dear to me through our Hub connection. She and I shared years of Wednesday afternoons before Polly decided she wanted to play bridge on Wed. and gave her shift to my dear friend Lorna. What fun we used to have sharing our time together, tea breaks, and talks. If it hadn't been for Polly, i wouldn't now have all those beautiful Hub memories. She was an inspiration to me on how to enjoy our senior years. Never to be forgotten, always to be treasured.

My sincere sympathy to you all,
Glenda jones.

My condolences to Bunny and the Donahoe family. Cherish your many memories of your Mom and she will help you through this difficult time. Its not every family that has a street named after them. I will always think of your street as Donahoe's Hill, the greatest place to toboggan on our side of town. My thoughts are with you all.
