Molly was born in Forres, Morayshire, Scotland. She immigrated to Canada, eventually arriving in Moose Jaw where she met and married Jack, a prominent cattle dealer.

Those who knew Molly know of her many and varied talents: a master baker, an avid gardener, a creative crafter, and a mother of infinite love and wisdom. She was a very special lady of grace and dignity. Molly was predeceased by her husband, Jack, an infant daughter, Elizabeth Mary and her eldest daughter, Margaret Joan. She leaves to sadly mourn her passing, two daughters: Anne Heal - Regina and Beverly Conner - Norglenwold, Alta.; two sons: Ian - North Battleford and Roderick - Delta, B.C.; eleven grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. AT HER REQUEST, MOLLY HAS BEEN CREMATED AND A PRIVATE CELEBRATION OF HER LIFE WILL BE HELD BY HER FAMILY.
