Era Pauline "Polly" Prewitt, 93, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 24, 2010. She was born on September 18, 1916, in Kirkland, Texas, to John and Minnie White. Polly was valedictorian of her class at Kirkland High School and her education continued for many years. She received her cosmetology license from San Jacinto Beauty College, while later earning an Art Degree from Hill College, and an Associates Degree in Science from UCLA.
Polly had her own beauty shop and later went in to teaching. She taught at Aladdin Beauty College and later became a substitute teacher in the Cleburne, Rio Vista, and Grandview school districts. While accomplishing all of this, she never stopped serving the Lord as a Bible class teacher.

Polly was married to her first husband, Dutch Wilmeth, who later died in China, Burma during World War II. After the war, she met Eugene Prewitt, whom she married. He preceded her in death in 1985. She had many talents; a wonderful mother, a devout Christian, a musician, and artist, a seamstress, and inventor, and a business woman.

Polly Prewitt is survived by two daughters; Sylvia Deaver and husband, Charles, of Wichita Falls, Texas, and Ellen Triplett and husband, Ray, of Granbury, Texas. She has four grandchildren; Kyle Triplett of Grandview, Texas; Derek Davidson of Grandfield Oklahoma; Shara Brown of Wichita Fall, Texas; and Kim Stone of Fort Worth, Texas. She was blessed with five great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Although having eight siblings, only two sisters survive her; Jewel McCullough of Fort Worth, Texas and Lois White of Mesquite, Texas.
Polly was a member of the Parker Church of Christ where she taught children's Bible class for many years. Her legacy will be her zest for life and her favorable influence for the Lord in the lives of many.
