Edward William Polcyn
Having been married for 70 years, Ed and Lore Polcyn passed away within three days of each other, residing until the end in the home they loved in Lakewood, WA. Their wish was granted.
Lore was born in Goeppingen, Germany on February 13, 1929, and died on January 7, 2023. Ed was born in Dunbar, West Virginia on March 2, 1925, and died on January 10, 2023. They met in Monterey, CA when Ed was in the Army (he had served previously in the Navy and Air Force). After marrying, Ed was stationed in Germany, where their son Mark was born. Following Ed’s last military assignment, retiring from the Army in 1964, they moved to Lakewood, WA. Ed was a branch manager at Puget Sound National Bank, retiring from there in the mid-80’s, while Lore worked many years as a textbook librarian at Lakes High School. Ed volunteered at Madigan Hospital for 20 years. They enjoyed golf, cards, and cruising.
Ed and Lore are survived by their son Mark (Laura). Lore is survived by her sister in Germany. Ed is survived by numerous sisters and brothers. To fulfill their wishes, their ashes will be scattered.
We are especially grateful to the Passion for Care team who provided excellent and loving care to Ed and Lore in their final months.
