NORTH MANCHESTER – Pauline “Polly” Spohr, 78, Centerville, Tenn., and formerly of Warsaw, died Sunday, Dec. 20, 2020, in Nashville, Tenn.

An avid reader, Polly also enjoyed her time baking, watching travel shows and crocheting. She made decorative items for those she loved, including an afghan for each family member. Polly always helped others, even if doing so meant she had to go without.
