Polly Ann Jenkins was born May 1, 1932 to Floyd and Joe Bob Jenkins.  She was the fifth of Joe Bob's seven children and is survived by sisters Helen Murphy and Bonnie McKenzie of Oklahoma City, son Eddie Marshall and wife Kathie Jo, daughters Treisa Revel and husband Jerry of Newcastle, OK, and Cathy JoAnn Marshall of Antioch, Tennessee, as well as grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, cousins, nieces, and nephews too numerous to mention.

Polly, or as she was known by family, Poo or Poo Ann, grew up in Oklahoma City and graduated from Capitol Hill High School. She played the clarinet in the High School Band and loved singing in the choir. 

She met and married Thomas Edward Armitage and they had three children, Thomas Edward Armitage, Jr., Treisa Lynn Armitage, and Cathy JoAnn Armitage. 

In 1968, Polly met and married Robert A. Marshall along with his eight children, Elisabeth, Bobbi Jo, Sandra, Rick, Joyce, Johnny, Jimmy, and LeeAnne. Bob adopted Eddie, Treisa and Cathy so they became part of the Marshall clan as well. 

Bob and Polly bought a place at Lake Eufaula where they loved to fish and have their kids and grandkids come to visit.  Polly learned to ride a motorcycle so she and Bob could ride together.  Her grandchildren remember her teaching them to macramé, create and paint ceramics, feed the ducks, swing on the tire swing, and play Bingo at the Porum Volunteer Fire Department.  They knew that she could name every bird that landed outside her window.  Her Thanksgiving dressing recipe is infamous in the family and is still being shared.

Polly has always liked putting jigsaw puzzles together and in her later years, it consumed a large amount of her and her friends' time at Southwest Mansions and Meadow Lake Nursing Home - that's why they called her the Puzzle Lady.
