Polly Allen Hogge of Greenup, Kentucky, passed away on Thursday, May 19, 2022, at KDMC in Ashland, Kentucky. She was born in Logan County, West Virginia, on December 16, 1943, to Morton and Eileen Allen.
She was preceded in death by father, Morton Allen; mother, Eileen Allen; and husband, Charles Hogge of Greenup.
Polly is survived by brother, Hobert (Barbara) Allen of Wichita, Kansas; sister, Barbara (Laymond) Howard of Greenup; daughter, Kimberly (Charles) Romans of Greenup; son, Mark Hogge of Greenup; grandson, Harley Hogge, granddaughter, Samantha Romans, and grandson, Colton Hogge. She is also survived by many other cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends whom she cherished more than any material possession.
Polly moved with her family to Sugar Camp Road in Greenup, and she graduated from McKell High School in 1961. She was married to Charles Hogge on February 18, 1963, and the two began their own family together. Polly was a homemaker dedicated to her children and her nieces and nephews and was always quick to volunteer to help them with school projects and school events, she continued to do so with her grandchildren. She attended Load Baptist Church and Liberty Methodist Church on Route 7 in Greenup and cherished her church family and all the time she spent with them.
She enjoyed fishing, trips to the beach, and spending time with her family and friends who quickly became her family. She was a Kentucky Colonel and a member of the Homemakers in Greenup for many years. She was also an avid reader on a variety of subjects and loved the Library in Greenup. She enjoyed their Summer Reading Program both to see the children in the community reading, and to cash in her own "coins" at the end at their book sale. She was also a member of a book club that met at the Greenup Library, and spending time with the club was something she always looked forward to and enjoyed.
Polly also like to travel with her partners in crime, sister Barbara, cousin Patty Riffe, and sister-in law Ann Rose Brown. They enjoyed visiting new places and seeing new things, whether it was some distance away or on "day trips". It was easy to tell who was driving on those trips, because the other three cars were parked at the driver's home while they were out enjoying the time spent together, seeing new things or even simply shopping and stopping to eat.
Polly will be remembered for her kind heart, her willingness to help others, and her love of family, friends, and her community. Reed Funeral Home in Greenup is in charge of arrangements, but no funeral or visitation is planned. A memorial will be held at a future date, and information when available will be posted through Reed's.
