Donna Jane (Polly) Womack left her earthly home on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 in San Saba, Texas at 84 years of age. The Funeral Service was held on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at Heritage Funeral Home in San Saba. Donna was born in Eastland County, Texas on May 28, 1929 to Conner F. and Velma Jane (Horn) Stubblefield. At an early age, she was nicknamed Polly by her father, a name that stuck with her all her life. The family moved frequently while Polly was growing up. Her father was a heavy machinery operator, and his work took the family to several cities throughout Texas, including Abilene, San Antonio, Eagle Pass, Plainview and Goldthwaite. She graduated from Goldthwaite High School and attended Tarleton Junior College. Polly married Thomas C. Womack on December 4, 1948 in Goldthwaite, and the couple made their first home in Sonora, before settling in San Saba in 1952. The couple had three children, Nancy Jane, Thomas Wayne and Robert Ray. Polly was a faithful member of the Church of Christ, and worshipped at the Second and Wallace St.congregation since moving to San Saba. She was dedicated to the Lord throughout her life and her faith was always strong. Polly worked for a time, during her early adult life at an automobile dealership in Sonora and at the Tax Assessor’s office in San Saba. After her children were born, Polly was dedicated to her family and home. She loved her family dearly. One of Polly’s many talents was writing poems to commemorate events in the church and community and about the people she loved. She has written hundreds of poems about her faith, her family and her friends and has touched many lives through her poetry. Polly is survived by her husband, three children, two grandchildren, who she treasured, Shele Sanderson and Scott Sanderson of San Saba, one great grandson, Cooper, and one brother, Sam Stubblefield of Burnet. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Bill Stubblefield.
