Polly Ann (McCulloch) Powers was born on May 6, 1933 in Huntsville, Texas to Horace and Arbelle McCulloch. She attended schools in both Huntsville and Lufkin Texas. She was united in marriage to Bobby Mack Powers Sr. on December 23, 1954 in Huntsville. They were married for almost 64 years.

Polly received her Bachelor degree in English from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville. She and Bob moved to Plano in 1969 and there she worked as a substitute teacher in the Plano Independent School District and for The Geomap Company in Plano. Polly was active in her church; The First United Methodist in Plano, where she taught Sunday School but her real passion was being a full time mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

One of Polly's favorite pastimes was keeping in touch with her family and friends. She would do this either by sending handwritten letters or handmade greeting cards that she would personally create. Polly enjoyed life and was a blessing to all of those who knew her.

Polly is survived by her husband Bob, by her children and their spouses Pam Sheridan (Guy) of Plano and Mack Powers (Holly) of Dallas. Also surviving her are eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her brothers Horace McCulloch and Albert McCulloch and by her sister Gertrude Corson.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorials may be made to Vitas Hospice or The Sam Houston State University Alumni Association.

A memorial service to celebrate Polly's life will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Wednesday December 20th at Grace Bible Church, which is located at 11306 Inwood Road, Dallas, Texas 75229. A reception will follow in the church commons. Mrs. Powers went to be with her Lord on Tuesday December 12, 2017.
