It is with great sad­ness that the fam­ily an­nounces the pass­ing of Polly Wadden, age 95, on May 27, 2017 at Ocean View Con­tin­u­ing Care Cen­ter, Eastern Pas­sage.

Born Jan­uary 27, 1922 at her home on Do­min­ion St., Whit­ney Pier, Polly was the daugh­ter of the late John James and Mary (Bench) Neville and was the last sur­viv­ing member of her im­me­di­ate fam­ily. She spent all of her mar­ried life one street over on Matilda Street, un­til mov­ing to Ocean View Con­tin­u­ing Care Cen­ter. For 68 years she was part of the Matilda Street com­mu­nity where she and her late hus­band Stan­ley lived in the house he built. Polly had a great sense of hu­mour and loved chil­dren, play­ing bingo, darts, shop­ping, and spend­ing time at the fam­ily bun­ga­low in Red Is­lands. She loved her fam­ily dearly. She was a member of Holy Redeemer par­ish all her life.

Polly will be sadly missed by her son, Stan and his wife, Pa­tri­cia, Dart­mouth; daugh­terin law, Anne Marie, Monc­ton, NB; grand­chil­dren, Matthew (Joy), Lori (Daniel), Lisa (Jor­dan), Scott (Marie), Jeff, John (April), David (Tonya), and pre­cious great grand­chil­dren, Jack­son, Leah El­lie, Claire, Cal­lum, Vin­cent and Eve­lyn.

Be­sides her par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band of 68 years, Stan­ley; son, Don; sis­ters, Yuba, Meltha, Ella and An­nie; broth­ers, Carl, Joe, John, Ashie and Mau­rice.

The fam­ily would like to thank her ex­tended fam­ily at Ocean View Con­tin­u­ing Care Cen­ter who took ex­cep­tional care of her over the last five and a half years.

Ac­cord­ing to Polly’s wishes, there will be no visi­ta­tion. A Fu­neral Mass to cel­e­brate her life will be held at Holy Redeemer Church, Whit­ney Pier, at 10 a.m. on Mon­day, June 5, 2017, Fa­ther Paul Mur­phy of­fi­ci­at­ing.
