Pauline (Polly) Vinson

October 24, 2021 — May 1, 2021

Pauline Bates Vinson passed away on Saturday, May 1, 2021 in Jackson, Tennessee after a lengthy illness. She lived with her family in Jackson for the past eight years. Ms. Polly was born October 12, 1924 to the late Ruby Bates Sparks and Charlie Bates in Tupelo, Mississippi. She spent her childhood in Tupelo and relocated to West Memphis, Arkansas when she married Harold (Vince) Vinson in 1967. He preceded her in death on February 7, 1997. Polly had a long working career with Farber Brothers in Memphis from 1952-1986, where she worked in supervision. Because she enjoyed working, she decided to join Tops BBQ, in Memphis where she was employed for the next 13 years. She loved spending her time gardening and caring for her pets. Vince and Polly enjoyed their leisure time fishing, boating, and relaxing at Horseshoe Lake in eastern Arkansas. Graveside services for family and friends will be held on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, at 1:00 PM at Lee Memorial Park in Verona, Mississippi.
