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.

    My love and support is being sent to you June and Clint from New Zealand. Although I never had the privilege of meeting your wonderful Mother June I am sure that I have met her many many times in you and your ways. I do know that your care of her was amazing and it would have made her final days full of love, comfort and no doubt some laughter too. Thinking of you at this sad time and will be in touch by phone soon. Big Hugs from Lauryn and I xoxo Kristin Buchanan

  4. Dear June, Clint, Judy, Curtis, Leigh, and all those beautiful grandchildren,
    Allie was such a wonderful and inspiring woman. When I think of her she usually has either a rather serious look on her face with many thoughts going on; I can just see the wheels turning.Or, she is filled with laughter and fun and good conversation.
    Both of these images make me smile for the special woman she was. I always enjoyed my short visits with her over the years and know that love for her family was at the core of her being. I am thinking of all of you at this time – such a great loss and sending wishes and hopes that you each have special memories to take with you of this exceptional woman. Thinking of you, Toni
