Polly Ann Judd

Polly Ann Judd, 86, of Dowagiac, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2020 at Ascension Borgess – Lee Memorial Hospital in Dowagiac.

Polly was born May 24, 1934 in Britton, Mich. to Elmer and Frances (Zeluff) Eberhardt. On December 20, 1952 she married Donald Lee Judd, son of Thomas and Lena Judd.
