Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Pauline (Polly) Anne Fajen, 56, of Boonville, died on April 8, 2020. She was surrounded by loving care of family as she spent her final days in hospice, after a 21-year life with cancer.
Polly was a determined lover of life, warm and fun, and a precious friend to many around the world. She was a caring and influential nurse, at the forefront of treating people with AIDS, then going to psychiatric nursing and finally to physical rehabilitation nursing, working with people with spinal cord injury and stroke.
Faith was paramount to Polly, and she remained active in her church until the end. Just a few of her loving services included singing in the choir, teaching Bible classes, serving on the Caring Committee with her generous outreach and assisting with Music Camp.
A memorial service will not be held at this time but will be planned for a future date when people are able to gather together to celebrate Polly Fajen’s Most Excellent Adventure of Life.
Kate Garland says
This world has lost a truly kind, funny, compassionate, and amazing friend. When I met Polly at Rusk, I knew instantly that I wanted to get to know her. She could change the atmosphere in the room by her smile, wit and presence. Polly was someone who was always positive and supportive, she was the type of friend that you could easily talk to about anything. To her family, our prayers and love are with you during this difficult time. I will miss you Polly immensely, you will always have a special place in my heart. Until I see you again in heaven. Love goose.
