Born July 7, 1945, In Circleville, Ohio, Polly Jean Wilson was one of five children born to Gerald and Evelyn (Strauser) Davis. She moved with her family as a teenager to New Mexico, where she met and later married Richard Wilson. The couple was blessed with four children, Julie, Jean, Jolynn, and Richard.

Polly was employed as a case worker with the New Mexico Department of Corrections for over 20 years, retiring in 2005. She then moved to Iowa in order to be closer to her children and grandchildren.

She loved the company of her family and was always up for a good game, especially poker and Scrabble. Polly loved to travel, especially on cruises and trips to New Mexico to visit friends and family. She enjoyed collecting angels, hot air balloons and hat pins. Polly was a mother figure to many and will be remembered for her giving, generous and loving nature.

Survivors include her children, Julie (Eric Blakley) of Ames, Jean (Tony) Reynolds of Huxley, Jo Lynn (Jerry) Lund of Ames, and Richard Wilson of Ames; 13 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; three sisters, Jeri Hansen of Idaho, Jackie (Mike) Walsh of New Mexico, and Tina Landrum of Ohio; as well as many nieces, nephews, and other extended family members.

She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother, Dale Davis.

Ames Monument & Cremation Center has been entrusted with the care of Polly and her family.

Polly was the best friend I could have asked for. We were friends for over 30 years and shared in many memories, good and bad (mostly good). Some of the memories included a few trips together and were hoping that we would be able to do more after we retired. Our Heavenly Father had different ideas and decided that He needed her a lot more than I did. I sorely missed her when she moved to Iowa but I am truly going to miss her now. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you. I love you, Polly.

CandleI live in Los Lunas, NM and used to babysit for Jolynn and Richard that is how I met Polly this was at least 30+ years ago when Polly worked for the prison in Los Lunas and Ritchie was in kindergarten. She was such a nice lady, the first time I met her felt like I had known her along time. I send my condolences to all of her children.

CandleJulie, Jean, Jo Lynn, Richard, please accept my apologies. I just found out & was devastated to know my dear friend is gone. My old bat, that was my nickname for her. My heart breaks for you, be thankful you had her with you, to watch & care for one another. I have no words. I'm going to miss her so much. Thank you Polly for being a wonderful, beautiful friend. My deepest condolences, many blessings. Love you forever, Dodo

Jean, you always spoke so lovingly of your mother. I am so thankful she moved here and you were able to spend more time with her. Praying for you and your family. What a glorious day for your mother to meet Jesus on the day of his birth. I hope you find peace in knowing she is free from this world and living with our savior. Much love to you and your family.
Love,
