Francis Pauline Scritchfield Obituary
Francis Pauline (Polly) Scritchfield August 21, 1938 - September 24, 2013 Born August 21, 1938 in Sunkist Oklahoma to Frank and Eva Wiggins. Passed away September 24, 2013. She was preceded in death by her parents, a son Timmy, her in-laws Bud and Pearl Scritchfield, and her brother Rex Wiggins. Polly is survived by her husband of 56 years Elmer Scritchfield, son Jim (daughter) in law Myrna. Five grandchildren Kelsey Scritchfield (Bakersfield CA), Kyle Scritchfield (Plumas CA), Jake Scritchfield (Pensacola, Florida), Josh Scritchfield (Pensacola, Florida), and Adam Matheson (Sullivan, Illinois). Polly is also survived by five great grandchildren and several cousins she thought of as her brothers and sisters more than cousins. Polly was a proud American! Every day she wore a yellow ribbon with an American flag pin on it proudly to honor her grandsons in the military, Kyle (Air Force), Jake (Coast Guard), and Josh (Coast Guard), and for all our soldiers past and present. Her pride and joy were her grandchildren. She tried to go to every ball game and school activity that she could. The grandkids knew when (Bam) was there. You could not miss her red hair. She loved to play the slot machines with her (daughter) in law Myrna. A pastime she inherited from her mother. Polly gave faithfully to children's charities. The family requests donations be made to children's charities of the donor's choice in lieu of flowers. Thank you. She was an interpreter for the deaf for over fourteen years. The mailman will miss his annual pecan pie every Christmas from Polly. Her generosity was immeasurable. She will be missed by her family and friends soooo much. The family would like to thank Christine (Teenie) Keithley, Barbara Womack, Chet Morrow, Donnie Wiggins, and Larry and Deanna Smith for always being there for us. Thank you so much. Graveside services will take place at Hillcrest Cemetery on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, at 11:00 a.m. www.bakersfield.com/obits
