Kay Fowler Polk, 72, of Williamson, died May 3, 2016, following a valiant battle with cancer. She was the owner of Antiques on Main in Woodbury.
She was born Feb. 27, 1944, in Atlanta, the second child of William J. Fowler and Marian McWhorter Fowler, of East Point. She attended Headland High School, where she excelled in athletics, especially basketball, and graduated in 1962. That same year, she met and married the love of her life, Robert E. (Bobby) Polk with whom she has been a constant companion for nearly 54 years.
Kay’s career was in banking, having gotten her start at the Old Farmer’s and Merchant’s Bank in Fayetteville and moved up from there. She loved gardening and was most proud that the garden she and Bobby designed at their former home in Hollonville was selected for the county garden tour. She also loved decorating and had a magic touch when it came to decorating a home.
She was preceded in death by her father in 1975 and her brother in 2015.
She is survived by her husband, Bobby Polk, of Williamson; three children, Kelly Pinholster, also of Williamson; Jason Polk of Fayetteville; and Justin Polk of Atlanta; grandchildren Chandler Polk of Heard County; Curtis, Kayce, and Caleb Fowler of Henry County; mother Marian Fowler of Williamson; sister Judy Kilgore of Newnan; three great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
