On February 15, 2005, Caroline Scorup Polly died at age 96 of causes incident to old age. She was born on April 4, 1908 in Salina, Utah, her father's hometown. He had taken the family to Salina from their home in Bluff, Utah, so that this sixth child could be delivered by a doctor. But on the day Caroline was born, the doctor was out of town. And so, her father John Albert Scorup, a rancher who had delivered many a calf, delivered her himself with instructions from his wife, Emma Theodora Bayles, who was a midwife, as well as a schoolteacher. Caroline [BYH Class of 1916] was the youngest of six sisters, Edna Scorup Larsen [BYH Class of 1916], Veda Bayles Scorup Nelson Williams [BYH Class of 1919], Anna LaVerde Scorup Gurney [BYH Class of 1921], Juliette Scorup Ward, and Pearl Alberta Scorup Fairbourn, all of whom died before she did. Growing up to the age of nine in Bluff, Caroline saw there the last mustering of the U.S. Cavalry from Denver for an expected Indian uprising which never happened. Her family moved to Provo so that all six sisters could graduate from BYU. Caroline chose to major in Dietetics and Business. While at BYU she met her sweetheart Orville Louis Polly, who became her chemistry lab instructor and husband. They married during the Great Depression on August 29, 1934 in the Salt Lake Temple and rode the bus for their honeymoon to Baltimore, Maryland, where Orville completed his Ph.D. Fortunately finding a job in the oil industry in Southern California, they settled in Long Beach, where they raised their family, Karen Elizabeth, Julie Ann and Kenneth Edward. Caroline and Orville made many wonderful friends and were active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. For many years Caroline was the secretary-treasurer of the Relief Society women's organization of the church during the bazaar era. She also taught Primary, Mutual, Sunday School and was a faithful visiting teacher as long as she was able. When Orville died in 1971, Caroline followed through alone on their retirement plans to move back to Provo. The people of her neighborhood and Edgemont 8th, now the 11th Ward, have been cherished friends. [Deseret News, Friday, February 18, 2005.]
