Marjorie Ann “Marj” Politt, 90, Plymouth, Michigan, passed away Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at her home.
On July 1, 1931, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, she was born to the late Henry Brown and Queen Esther (Hafert) Clark.
Marjorie was a graduate of Logansport High School. She met her future husband, Donald “Don” Pollitt in 1948 when Don moved here to take a job at the Logansport Press and the Pharos Tribune – a career that spanned 43 years. The couple were married on September 22, 1956, in Logansport.
The word “homemaker” barely begins to describe Marj Pollitt. She was a devoted wife to her husband, Don, of 62 years, and supported and encouraged him in all of his endeavors. When Don partnered with Glen Peeples to build Par 3 Golf Course and the Rolling Hills subdivision, Marjorie’s input was invaluable. In later years, Marj and Don enjoyed living in New Port Richey, Florida for 22 years before moving to Michigan 7 years ago, to be closer to family.
As a loving mother, her home was a welcoming place, and she supported her daughters in all of their activities. Her religious affiliation was with the First Church of Christian Science. Marj was a member of Tri Kappa sorority and the Elkettes. She served of the Children’s Home Board and was a member of the PEO. An avid golfer, Marjorie was active in organizing women’s leagues at Par 3.
Marjorie was very loved and will be deeply missed by her two daughters, Judy Pollitt (Matt) Wagner, West Lafayette, and Amy Pollitt (Mark) Zehr, Plymouth, Michigan; five grandchildren: Donny Wagner, Clay Wagner, Austin Zehr, Ashley Zehr and Ryan Zehr; a cousin who was like a sister to her, JoAnna Booher; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, parents, and the grandparents who raised her, Margaret (Alleman) and William John Hafert, Marj was preceded in death by one brother, Jack Clark: and three sisters, Maxine Anderson, Joyce Svoboda, and Nancy Feely.
A gathering of family and friends will be held from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, July 10, in Fisher Funeral Chapel, 1801 Chase Road, Logansport, Indiana.
At 4 p.m., there will be a Christian Science reading and a time of remembrance.
