James and wife Susan of Wilmington; sister, Peggy Snow Tilley of Richmond, VA; brother, Dr. Jack Snow of Mount Airy; grandchildren, Joshua James (Becky) of Fayetteville, Sarah James Baker (Adam) of Wilmington, Zachary James (Cherylanne) of Wilmington, Benjamin Keane, Joseph Keane, Ethan Keane, and Caleb Keane, all of Charleston, SC; and great-grandchildren, Oliver James and Harrison James. She is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews and friends.

In addition to her parents, Polly was preceded in death by her half-sister, Gertrude Jones Long; half-brother, Wallace Jones; sisters-in-law, June Snow and Ella Jones; and brothers-in-law, Mike Tilley and McAdoo Long.
