On February 16, 1910, she married Dr. Roscoe Pollock, who preceded her in death in 1946. Three sisters and six brothers also preceded her in death. Remaining to mourn her passing are her daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Sutherland of Anchorage, Alaska; her four sons, John of Augusta, Georgia; Robert of Kirkwood, Missouri; Davis of Douds; and Larry of Anchorage, Alaska; 8 grandchildren, other relatives and many friends.
Mrs. Pollock was the granddaughter of David Doud, one of the founders of Douds.
Except for brief periods her entire life was spent in Douds. She combined the role of country doctor's wife with that of mother and community leader in ad admirable fashion, and will be long remembered for her many acts of kindness and assistance to those in sickness and distress.
