LEXINGTON: Polly Ann Mason, age 63, peacefully passed away in her sleep July 10, 2020, at home.
She was born September 2, 1956, in Urbana the youngest child of James William & Betty Lee (Morehart) Pratt, and grew up on the family dairy farm where she learned the importance of hard work and perseverance. She graduated from Mechanicsburg High School with the class of 1974 and went on to earn her associate’s degree in dairy science from The Ohio State University in 1982. She worked 20+ years as a paramedic for Delaware County EMS helping countless neighbors in distress. Often meeting people on their worst day, Polly was tenacious in solving problems and getting people the help they needed at all costs.
Polly was blessed to meet Michael Mason and the pair married on June 11, 2005. They built a beautiful life and were looking forward to many years of retirement together.
Polly enjoyed nature and especially loved gardening and growing gorgeous flowers. She had a big heart and loved her grandchildren and five whippet dogs. She was a member of the Columbus Iris Society and the Caroline Chapter of the Eastern Star.
