Mary Pollard

September 2, 2020


Mary “Peggy” Margaret Pollard, age 73, of North East, MD, formerly of New Castle, DE, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, September 2, 2020. 

Mary had a great love for baking, especially making holiday dinners for her family.  She enjoyed her weekly trips to the hair salon, shopping, ceramics, reading, crossword puzzles and watching her holiday shows. But, what was most important to her was spending time with her family. She always made sure that her family never did without and always put her family and others first. Fall was her favorite time of the year. She loved Halloween and seeing all the children dressed up in their costumes. She was a member of the Howard Weston Senior Center, where she spent most of her mornings doing ceramics for her family. 

Mary was predeceased by her loving husband, Thomas Woodrow Pollard and her daughter, Paulette Pollard. 

Mary is survived by her son, Thomas W. Pollard Jr (Kathleen) of North East; MD,  her two daughters, Jeanette M. Currey (Greg) of North East, MD and Jennifer A. Dill of North East, MD; along with 5 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
