Pauline Marie  Binkley Curry


Pauline Marie Binkley Curry (Polly) passed from this life at home on Thursday, January 11, 2018, at the age of 97. Polly Papin was born on April 12, 1920 in Cushing, Oklahoma to George and Sarah Papin and was the seventh of nine children. Polly was married to Robert Harold Binkley on June 3, 1939 and raised one boy, Robert Warren Binkley and three girls, Jill Marie, Kim Elaine and Keri Lynn in Oklahoma City.

Polly is survived by her three daughters and their husbands, Jill & Dennis Stevens, Kim & Mike Knox and Keri and Mark Buntyn all of Edmond, Oklahoma. She is also survived by her younger brother, Warren Jean Papin who resides in Florida, one daughter in law, Carol Ann Binkley of Houston, Texas, twelve grandchildren, twenty-two (and a half) great grandchildren and one great great grandchild well on the way.

Graveside services will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018, 1:00 p.m., Pleasant Hill Cemetery, corner of Waterloo and Sooner Road in Edmond, Oklahoma. An informal celebration of life will be held at the home of Mike and Kim Knox, 3801 W. Burns Road following the service at 3:00 p.m. Arrangements have been entrusted to Matthews Funeral Home of Edmond.

Polly always said that her greatest triumph was looking at her grown children and their families and realizing that she had a hand in helping them attain the successful lives they have and that couldn’t have happened without a lot of faith, trust and prayers. She will be sorely missed!

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Melanoma Research Foundation in memory of our brother.

  1. So sorry to hear of sweet Polly’s passing – but rejoicing in her long and happy life! She was a lovely, sweet, and earnest lady, ever generous. She had a wonderful smile and adorable disposition, and was a joy to be around. She really made the last 20 years of my grandfather’s life very special and fulfilling. You, as his extended family, were a huge part of that. Thank you so much for sharing Polly with him, and us. Jan and I will pray for you as you grieve her loss, and celebrate her amazing life and legacy. God bless you all!
