A native of Colbert, GA, Polly was born September 7, 1944, to Benny McCarty and Montez Herrin McCarty. In her working life, she was a bookkeeper for Cabarrus Creamery. An avid sports fan, especially of University of Georgia football, Polly also was a voracious reader, with a particular interest in politics and history. She was a film buff with a fondness for old movies and westerns. Most of all, she enjoyed her children and grandchildren, always showing an interest in their lives and their pursuits in school, work and leisure.
Left to cherish Polly’s memory are her husband of 58 years, Bobby Fowler, Sr., of the home; two sons, Bobby Fowler, and wife, Elizabeth, of Concord, and Marc Fowler of Austin, Texas; two grandchildren, Anna Fowler and Jackson Fowler; and two sisters, Mary Davis and Bonnie Parten.
