WINTHROP - Polly Cobb passed peacefully at her home in Winthrop on Jan. 27, 2016, surrounded by her large, loving family, to join her husband, Kenneth Cobb, in the warmth and love of the Lord's arms.
Polly was born in Melrose, Mass., on Sept. 20, 1928, the daughter of Edward L. and Muriel B. Page. She graduated from Melrose High School in 1946; attended Western College in Oxford, Ohio, from 1946 to 1947; and graduated from Wheelock College in Brookline, Mass., in 1950 with a teaching degree. Polly taught for two years at Weston Elementary School in Weston, Mass.
On June 21, 1952, Polly married Kenneth A. Cobb, an Augusta attorney, at the East Winthrop Baptist Church. She taught kindergarten at Williams School in Augusta from 1952 to 1953.
As a member of the East Winthrop Baptist Church, Polly served as a deacon, Sunday School superintendent, and president of Loyal Daughters Ladies Church Club. At the time of her death, she was an active member of the North Monmouth Community Church in North Monmouth, and served on the board of directors and as clerk for the church.
She served for five years as a Girl Scout leader in Manchester, a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority for over 50 years, a Maranacook School Board member for 15 years, and an area representative for the AFS Foreign Exchange Program for several years at the Maranacook Community School. Polly also served for many years on the board of directors for Manchester Housing for the Elderly. Together with her husband they started the Gardencrest Development in Manchester.
Polly was predeceased by her husband, Ken, on March 22, 2005. She was predeceased by her parents, her sisters Muriel A. Page and Patricia N. Page, her sons-in-law Edward Savage and Darrell Brann, and her niece Rebecca Gibbs.
She is survived by her sister, Mary Lu Hatstat of Vermont; her daughters Cynthia Brann, Sandra Lagasse and husband Wayne of Winthrop, Beth Cobb and Debra Cronk of Winthrop, and Julie Fletcher and husband Joseph of Monmouth; and her son Eric Cobb and partner Cheryl Thompson of Winthrop; fifteen grandchildren, Elizabeth Brooke and husband Alan of Winthrop, Christa Savage of Winthrop, Ethan Savage and Suzanna Brennan of Chesterville, Kevin Savage of Winthrop, Drs.

She is also survived by cousins Nancy Wilbur and Barbara Miller; nieces Susan Mackin, Nancy LaPierre, Sally May, Carolyn Cobb-Chaney, and Beverly Labbe; and nephew Bill Cobb.
Polly was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, devoted wife, and friend to many.

Family, church, and friends were very important to her.
