I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed doing your mother’s hair at Wyomissing Rehab. It is so sad for these people to not be able to be with their families. I miss all my clients, but Polly was one of my favorites. God bless you and your families. Angie Himmelberger

To the family of Polly Trumbower:
My sympathies to you all.  I had kept in touch with Polly through cards when we were still First United Methodist Church, but since our merge with Grace United Methodist Church I have not.  We are now known as Millersville Community Church.   
I remember you all at First and Polly’s picture is exactly as I remembered her.
I spoke with Pat Moore Kanaski who also mentioned your family.
Again my sympathy to you all.
Mary A. (Axe) Burger, Caring Pastor, MCUMC
