Obituary for Polly Pinson-Killough

Polly Pinson-Killough passed away August 7, 2021. Polly was born on July 9, 1936, in Summerland, MS.

She graduated from Taylorsville High School in 1953. She continued her studies and was a proud alumna of Mississippi College in Clinton, MS.

Polly was a long-time member of St Columb’s Episcopal Church, originally in Jackson, MS.

Polly was preceded in death by her husband Larry Killough, parents Burnice and Willie Lee Jones and sister Margaret Woodson. She is survived by her sister Joy (Bob) May and brother Burnice (Mary Margaret) Jones Jr. She is survived by her 3 children: Bill (Vanessa) Pinson of Crystal Springs, MS, Stacy (Chuck) Thornton of Crystal Springs, MS and Elizabeth Garrett of Dallas, TX, 8 grandchildren: Chase (Whitney) Pinson of Whispering Pines, NC, Trevor (Megan) Pinson of Pearl, MS, Gage (Taylor) Pinson of Prattville, AL, Chad (Louise) Thornton of Kenner, LA, Carlee (Derek) Stephenson of Colorado Springs, CO, Wyatt Garrett, Sully Garrett and Reese Garrett of Dallas TX, and 5 great grandchildren: Tatum Pinson, Evie Pinson, Fletcher Stephenson, Rory Stephenson and Hattie Stephenson as well as many nieces who survive Polly.

Polly’s first job after graduation from Mississippi College was with Standard Oil in Jackson, MS as an administrative assistant. She went on to enter the field of court reporting in the Hinds County MS Youth Court system. Polly and her long-time friend, Vicki Bennett, then partnered to form The Freelance Reporter in Jackson, MS.
Polly enjoyed life to the fullest. She enjoyed her retirement - golfing and fishing with her husband Larry.
Polly fed and cared for many of her children’s friends as they grew up in south Jackson. She never turned away anyone her children brought home, and she was considered a second mother to many. She was beloved by her family and ALL who knew her.

The family extends a special thank you to Villa South and staff that provided excellent care for the last few years as well as Kare in Home Hospice staff and nurse Tonya Quick.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 14 at St Columb’s Episcopal Church, 550 Sunnybrook Rd in Ridgeland, MS. Visitation will begin at 2:30 followed by service at 3:00. Due to Covid, face masks will be required.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to St Columb’s Episcopal Church or Iona House Outreach Ministry of St. Columb’s Church.
