Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Mildred L. Polc, 91, passed away on October 24, 2021. She was born to George and Mildred (Viglasky) Martinovich on December 4, 1929. Mildred lived over 85 years in Sugar Creek, MO, and was a lifelong member of Messiah Lutheran Church. She graduated from Northeast High School then worked at Sears and Wards, until she married Stephen Daniel Polc, on November 18, 1950. Mildred worked at JC Penney at the Blue Ridge Mall for many years as well as volunteering at the Truman Library. She was preceded in death by both parents, George and Mildred Martinovich, a sister, Marylyn Gerdts, brother, George (Butch) Martinovich, Jr, and an infant son. She is survived by three children Douglas (Debbie), Stephen Barry, Jennifer (Terry) Rick, six grandchildren Bryan (Marlo), Julie (Darrell) Schmidli, Amanda (Nathan) Applegate, Tyler Rick, Magan Polc, Andrew Rick, and nine great-grandchildren, Korbin, Neva, Kade, Brecken, Brayden, Elliott, Emmett, Chloe and Maddie. Mildred loved nothing better than to entertain, feed her family and close friends while they talked, told old stories and laughed. Before she passed, her family was instructed to do just that. A small gathering was held to grant that request. Mildred’s final request was for her great-granddaughter, Chloe Applegate, sing on her Karaoke machine….and oh, did she sing! Certainly, she was smiling and laughing down at us.
