Lois Hall Polan

Wadley, GA  – Lois Ouida Hall Polan, 90, loving wife of 56 years to the late O. L. “Johnny” Polan, entered into rest Thursday morning, February 5, 2015 at Jefferson Hospital. Funeral services will be held at Praising Him Ministries at 3:30PM on Sunday, February 8, 2015 the Pastors Charles Price, Cindy Glover and Richard Stavely officiating. Interment will follow in the Wadley City Cemetery.

One of four daughters born to the late Allie Screws Hall and the late Norman Hall, Lois was a lifelong resident of Wadley, a homemaker, a retired seamstress from Wadley Shirt Factory, and a member of Praising Him Ministries. She enjoyed fishing, going shopping and going out to eat--and she absolutely loved the color red. She also loved to sing, especially in the church choir. Lois was a very friendly person and never met a stranger.  A devoted wife, dedicated mother and grandmother, Lois always put others’ needs before her own. Her greatest joy was her family. Her unselfish, abiding love will be greatly missed.

Lois is also preceded in death by her sons, James Polan and Ronnie Polan; and all her sisters. Survivors include her three children, Helen Stavely, Lois Ann Shumaker, and Johnny Polan, Sr.; daughter-in-law, Iris Polan; twelve grandchildren, Richard Stavely, Sr. (Leslie), Melissa Lumpkin (Keith), Greg Polan, Sr. (Cathy), Erica St. Clair (Doc), Jimmy Polan (Tara), Brandon Polan, Jason Shumaker (Sally), Heather Mullis (Michael), Johnny Polan, Jr. (Elizabeth), Jason Polan, Joe Polan and Jordan Polan; sixteen great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Pallbearers will be Greg Polan, Sr., Jimmy Polan, Joe Polan, Johnny Polan, Jr., Jordan Polan, Richard Stavely, Jr., and D. J. Zellner.

The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00PM Saturday evening, February 7, 2015.

Legacy of Love

A wife, a mother, a grandma too,
This is the legacy we have from you.

You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.

A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.

You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife, not just as a mother.

For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.

So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep.
