Pauline "Polly"
Dia Elmendorf
1939-2017

A long-time South Bay resident, Polly
Dia Elmendorf passed away recently.
Born in Youngstown Ohio, she met
and married Dr. Amir Dia while at nursing school, and the couple settled in
Palos Verdes in 1965 where they raised four children. Polly later moved to Torrance and returned to nursing as a hospice worker, where she was a joyful and steady presence for her patients and their families.
She is survived by her husband Bob Elmendorf, her brother Jim DeWoody, her children Sousie Alex Dia, Magda Dia (Tom Tolan), Amir Dia (Baleny Minas) and Adam Dia, as well as six grandchildren, whom she adored.
Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations to The Harbor Animal Care Center are appreciated. Please sign the guestbook, www.dailybreeze.com.
