Beverly Ann (Lewis) McCorkle-Pollard, age 76 of West Union died Sunday, January 10, 2021 at her residence in Panhandle.  Bev was born May 8, 1944 in Brush Creek Township in Adams County.  She was preceded by parents, Earl G. Lewis, Sr. and Idella (Blanton) Lewis; first husband, John E. McCorkle, Sr.; two sisters: Minnie Wyskiver and Evelyn Ralston; and three brothers: Raymond Lewis, Don Lewis and Harold Lewis.

Bev is survived by husband, John “JR” Pollard of West Union; one son, John E.

(Gloria) Lewis, Jr. of Lynx, several nieces and nephews, many cousins and numerous friends.

Bev graduated from the former Jefferson High School in Blue Creek.  She and John McCorkle were married for 41 wonderful years.  She married JR Pollard in 2011.  She enjoyed gardening and yard sales.  She spent many days with family and friends riding around on the hunt for sales.  For a short time, she worked at the West Union Walmart with her son John.  Throughout her life she gathered an extensive collection of angels and dolls. There was nothing more important than family.  How lucky we are to have someone that makes saying goodbye so hard.
