Across her years she would witness 17 presidents. She was one year old when World War I began and seven when frozen vegetables came on the market. Her father was a minister in The Reformed Church of Philadelphia. She had two sisters, both of whom are deceased. She was seven years old at the time of the fi rst radio broadcast and reports having had a good and happy childhood. Among other things she loved to play solitaire. She was proud of her family and had a fulfi lling relationship with each member. She was 14 when Charles Lindbergh fl ew across the Atlantic for the fi rst time. After high school graduation, she attended and graduated from Drexel University in Philadelphia with


a Bachelor of Science degree. Thereafter, she taught Home Economics in high school. She was asked to serve as a hostess at the Philadelphia Offi cers Club and it was there that she met James Holley, a career Navy offi cer assigned to submarines, who became her husband. Later he became an Arizona State Senator. She was 24 at the time of the Hindenburg disaster and the completion of the Golden Gate Bridge. She was 28 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. She and her husband had two sons, James and Eugene, both of whom are still living. She was 53 when President Kennedy was assassinated. In response to the question about the secret of a long life, she said she “has always kept healthy, lived a high moral life and has never done anything really bad.” Her greatest joy is now her family and friends. When asked what she would like people to know, she responded “to be successful in whatever they do and to be kind and thoughtful to other people.” Happy 99th birthday, Polly from all your friends. 
