Cissy was happiest in the kitchen cooking and hosting many holidays and parties for her entire family. She was a lovable, kindhearted, truly one of a kind individual who loved collecting Barbies, I Love Lucy, The Golden Girls, Food network, attending pro wrestling shows, going to concerts and buying anything that was As Seen on TV. She loved to watch any kind of movies, especially musicals and she loved her two dogs Jack and JoJo. She had no children but was worlds best babysitter to many. For over 25 years nieces and nephews and cousins found their way into Cissy`s arms. The latest one being her little "chickadee" Rae Ann. She enjoyed her times with her "pretty girl" Haley who would bring her Starbucks anytime she wanted it. She loved talking on the phone whether it be to her cousin Carlene or to cousin Stephanie on her way home from work. She loved the special requests she would get for her food whether it be nephew Brad wanting buffalo chicken pizza or nieces Pam and Amanda wanting chocolate fudge pies. She played an important part to her extended Polk family, Mark, Cathy, Brian, Jenae, Jer, Lisa (sister) Makayla and Laney. She had special relationships with her cousins Lisa and Jamie and with everyone who knew her. She made many memories with her best friend and sister of over 30 years Sherry. She loved the holidays and the family get togethers and she loved how all the aunts and uncles would decorate the street with Christmas lights every year. She touched the lives of every one of her nieces and nephews. She was always smiling and never complained about anything. Any story about Cissy was a good story. Anyone Cissy met she received with a big smile and a warm welcome. With Cissy Auten Polk a part of it, the world was alot brighter.
You will be missed and fondly remembered by everyone that ever knew you. Love you Cis.
