June 11, 1922 – March 18, 2015
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Allie Polupski on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at home with her family. Gently, God reached for her hand and she left us peacefully.
Allie loved life. A mentor by example, she was an energetic and hardworking individual. Allie was a master at the art of worry, related directly to her huge capacity to love, especially her family and her cats, Sushi and Meesha. She was fiercely independent, complicated, delightful, and adorable; a spunky little lady and the perfect example of greatness in a small package. She will be dearly missed.
Beloved mother of Judy Hancock (Bill) and June McCoy (Clint); grandsons Curtis Vierling (Zeva), Leigh Vierling (Christine), step granddaughters Laralee Graham (Allister), Brandy Jones (Kendall), step grandson Cory McCoy (Kandace); great-grandchildren Jade Aliya Mah-Vierling, Kale Nicolas Mah-Vierling, Rayel Lillanne Vierling, Lexi Rio Vierling, Rian Allie Vierling and Allie Naveen Graham.
