Athleen Pollard, 84, of Tell City, IN passed away Monday, January 20, 2014 at 4000 Valley Square, Woodside Village in Grand Forks, ND.
She was born in Tolu, KY on September 28, 1929 to the late E.H. and Maudie L. (Kimsey) Jones. Athleen worked for General Electric for 30 years, retiring in 1975. She was married to Ronald "Ronnie" Pollard on June 25, 1949. She enjoyed sharing the outdoors with Ronnie. Athleen was liked by everyone that she met. We always said that she could talk to a wall. She was very strong willed, some may say stubborn, but we all loved her for that. She truly loved her husband Ronnie, caring for him until his death. They were married for 64 years. She and Ronnie shared a great life together and now they are together again. We shall miss her dearly.
Surviving are her sons, Alan Palmer and wife, Peggy of Grand Forks, ND and Regis Palmer and wife Llolanda of New Harmony, IN; grandchildren, Shannon Palmer, Regis (Becky) Palmer, Alison (Shawn) Beckner and Randy Palmer; 2 great-grandchildren, Ethan Beckner and Malliyah Reed.
