Messages & Condolences
As I recall many years ago Molly’s daughter Kathy always talked of her mother in a very loving way. She would say “My mother can do anything. She can sew and cook anything.” She idolized her mother.
My deepest sympathy goes out to the family.
Molly (Mildred to me) was an amazing lady. Her daughter, Kathy, was a childhood friend of mine from McPherson. I reconnected with Mildred several times over the last 50 years. She wrote beautiful letters and her love and pride for her family was so evident. I was impressed with how well she did in her senior years. Some of the people we meet in life are very special and no matter the distance or years, we never forget. Mildred is one of those people.
Grandma Molly was the most loving, kindest and talented grandmother anyone could ever hope to have.
She would do anything for any one. She was a huge inspiration to me growing up. I will miss her terribly.
Rest in peace, Kaye
