By the last book, she has moved on and is now working in stain'd station. She says there was no point in the grocery store anymore.

  • There is a character named Polly Poe in A Series of Unfortunate Events. It is possible they are the same character, that she married Mr. Poe and took his last name. However, since Polly Partial is depicted as an older woman when Lemony Snicket was 12, it is unlikely that she could have had children a decade later with Mr. Poe.
