E. Pauline Runyon

E. Pauline Runyon, 94, was reunited with family and friends in Heaven on November 21, 2020. She was born October 28, 1926 in Greenwich, Ohio to Paul & Norma Enzor.

Polly graduated in 1944 from Greenwich High School where she and her lifelong friend Evelyn where the entire cheerleading squad!  Shortly after graduation, she met a blue eyed, curly-haired Mansfield boy on a motorcycle named John “Bub” Runyon. He quickly won her heart and they married in 1945, spending 70 years together. They worked hard and built a gold cart business (P&J Enterprises). They also played hard, enjoying their friends in both Ohio and Florida. Fun trips to Las Vegas were a plus.

Polly was a great hostess and “people person” and many a pool party or euchre game was held at her resident. She always had yummy dips and desserts ready for anyone who dropped in.

She will be greatly missed by many friends. Also missing and surviving her are her daughter & caretaker, Diana Runyon, daughter, Vicki Conaway, son, Gary Runyon and wife Belinda. She is survived by granddaughter, Tami, 6 great grandchildren, Alyssia & Skyler Rollison, Shawn, Joe, David and Daniel Petty. She was blessed with one great great granddaughter, Aurora. Loving niece, Rosie Au and nephews, Steve (Deidre) & Joe (Kim) Enzor also survive.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, John and granddaughter, Cheryl Lynn. She rejoins her brother Norman and infant brother, Harold.

Her life will be celebrated at a safer time. Donations of love can be made to Southern Care Hospice in Ontario or to St Jude’s.

    Polly was a wonderful friend. She and Bub were so special to me and my family. So many wonderful memories. They gave me a best friend in Diana. Polly will truly be missed and for sure always loved and remembered. Happy Polly and Bub are together again. Loved them both!

    To my dearest friend may you finally rest in peace, and free of pain. I will miss all of our great times we had together, such wonderful memories. My deepest sympathies to Diana, Vicki, Gary and Belinda.

  • Linda Lucas says:

    Words cannot express how much Polly’s friendship has meant to Mom (Felicia) and also the friendship of the entire Runyon family. Many of my fondest childhood memories are from get togethers at the Runyon’s, Pollys hospitality, and Bub’s laughter. Our love and prayers are with you all. Linda and Janet Lucas and Felicia Lucas Hamilton

    Polly was my second mom. So many wonderful memories with her and her family. The pool spoiled me for any public pool. She allowed me to pound on her piano which has been a lifelong love. The “Stanforth kids” couldn’t sneeze without mom phoning to “Dr.Polly” for advice! I spent nearly every weekend with her family and heard my mother on the phone with Polly nearly every day.She was such a good friend and still checked up on me often. Love and hugs to Diana, Gary and Vicki.
