Polly Mozingo Suiter, a resident of Daleville, Ala., and formerly of this city, crossed over to be with her family and friends who went before her, on April 29, 2005. She was 72. After facing, with dignity and bravery, a battle with ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease), she passed in peace at 10:37 p.m.

She was born on August 20, 1932, in Wayne County, N.C., to Eddie P. and Addie L. Mozingo, the ninth of eleven children, on the family farm. She met Leo F. Suiter and married him in 1950. Of that marriage they had three sons, Eddie F., Noah Michael and Robert J. She was a world traveler and enjoyed the open road. She had lived in Goldsboro, Fayetteville and Wilmington, N.C., Columbia and Caycee, S.C., Atlanta, Ga., New Orleans, La., Friedburg, Germany, and Dothan and Daleville, Ala. She toured Europe, Canada and most of these United States. She danced the Can-Can, and drove a race car (though not professionally). From the late 80s through the mid 90s she worked as a Home Health provider, primarily with Alzheimer's patients. She retired in 1996 and returned to Daleville to be near her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Mike, in 1982; her sisters, Laura and Dolly; and her brothers, Wyatt and Troy.

She is survived by two sons, Eddie and his wife Debbie, and Robert; two grandsons, Steven and Noah; one great-granddaughter, Samantha; her grandsons' mother, Elaine Lily, and her husband, Mark; five sisters, Mildred, Alice, Eunice, Emma and Marie; one brother, Donald; and many nieces and nephews; her friend and caregiver, Brenda; and her friend and neighbor, Karen and Sarah.

With warm thoughts to those who came to care for her, the family requests that donations be made to MDA, 3300 E. Sunrise Drive, Tucson, Ariz., 85718; or Wiregrass Hospice, P.O. Drawer 2127, Dothan, Ala., 36302.
