Margaret "Polly" Pauline Bassett

October 4, 1936 — July 1, 2024

Warner Robins

Margaret Pauline “Polly” Bassett, 87, returned home to be with Jesus on Monday, July 1, 2024. 

Polly was born on October 4, 1936, in Ashland City, Tennessee to the late Pleasant Green Meadows and Ora Lee Toler. A strong-willed and independent woman, Polly was a firecracker who always told it like it was. Even in her honesty, she was kind and loving. She loved her family fiercely and enjoyed any memories that could be made with them, from her children down to her great-great-grandchildren. 

Polly's career journey was as diverse as her interests. Her dedication to Robins Air Force Base spanned over a decade in Civil Service, a testament to her commitment and work ethic. She also nurtured her passion for flowers during her time at a local family-owned flower shop, where her green thumb and love for gardening blossomed. Notably, Polly's fascination with birds led her to raise majestic peacocks, adding color and joy to her life. In her free time, she enjoyed her quiet time, using it to sew or faithfully read her Bible. Her sweet countenance will be deeply missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. 

In addition to her parents, Polly was preceded in death by her children, Bonnie Bassett and Eric Bassett, grandson, Grant Cooper, and siblings, Pleasant Meadows, Jr. and Nancy McCullough. 

Her memory will forever be treasured by her children, Gail Bassett, Toni Astin, and Jeff Bassett; grandchildren, Nicole Brantley, Jessica Bailey, Sumer Dillard, Mia Thompson, Jeremy Bassett, Sabrina Bassett, and Alaina Bassett; and siblings, Jean Fogus and Rachel Pruitt along with 12 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren. 

Visitation will be Saturday, July 6, 2024, from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at McCullough Funeral Home. A funeral service will immediately follow at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of McCullough Funeral Home. Afterward, Polly will be laid to rest in Centerville Cemetery. 

For friends unable to attend at this time, the service will be streamed live at via the McCullough Funeral Home’s YouTube page.
